|Biomimetic Materials and Technologies II
Biomimetic materials research is becoming a rapidly growing and enormously promising field; and has been highlighted as one of the key technology trends that will shape the future. In this newsletter, some biomimetic designs and strategies applied for nature emulation have been selected with the aim to present the contribution of biomimetic materials to the design culture. The contribution covers a wide range of applications from medicine and silicon optics to self-healing polymers and bio-inspired synthesized aerogels. The newsletter is divided into four categories which are as follows: Materials and technologies inspired by animals, insects, plants and others.
