Knotted Chiral Meta Matter
SKCM2 is on a mission to introduce a new interdisciplinary research paradigm called “knotted chiral meta matter.” Using this paradigm, our team of researchers cross-pollinates mathematical knot theory and chirality knowledge across disciplines and scales. This work includes the creation of designable artificial knot-like particles that exhibit highly unusual and technologically useful properties, which will both deepen our understanding of nature as well as be useful for technological innovation to solve global problems, such as climate change.
