Innovative and Composite Materials University of Bordeaux
> Objectives: Whatever the nature of materials (organic, mineral),their structure can be tailored at different scales as soon as a right choice of manufacturing process is completed. This controlleddegree of structuration allows new properties to be obtained, fromnanometric to macroscopic scales. > Mastered competences: Know how to make a material and to control itsmicrostructure at different scales. Experience the physical andchemical phenomena that permit the modulation and/or modification ofthe properties (chemical, physical - optic, electric, mechanic,etc.). Approach of the integrative chemistry, to manufacture materialsaccording to requirements of the specifications.
