Congratulations to Nina Kølln Wittig who received an award for best oral presentation at the conference ”Bioinspired Materials: from understanding, through processing, to replication” on October 20-25, 2019 at Monte Verita, Switzerland.

The title of her presentation was "Vase-like β-polymorph guanine crystal aggregates formed at the air/water interface"

Nina Kølln Wittig is a PhD student in Associate Professor Henrik Birkedals research group at Department of Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO). During her PhD project her goal is to make bio-inspired tunable photonic materials based on guanine crystals with controlled size, shape and polymorphism. Tunable photonic reflector structures (structural colors) can be found in chameleons and copepods, among others.
