Multiscale materials are assembled from different types of nanomaterials, which themselves have unusual properties. By combining them together and integrating them into higher order hierarchies, smart matter with unique functionalities and surprising applications in many different fields can be obtained.  Research with this focus is pursued by a consortium of eight partners from academia and research, led by the Jaroslav Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

At FZU, research within the AMULET project will be carried out in the Department of Thin Films and Nanostructures in the research group of Jiří Červenka. The research group will focus on new hybrid nanomaterials and devices for energy storage and external pulse detection. It will develop new flexible batteries and adaptive tactile sensors.

Other members of the consortium include the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem, the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Charles University, the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague.
