Martin van Hecke Lab (Mechanical Metamaterials)

We investigate the physics and design of mechanical metamaterial, intricately sculpted materials with properties set by their architecture.

We focus on complex metamaterials, that can be (re)programmed, that are multifunctional, or that are active, and connect the physics of soft and frustrated matter to soft robotics and design.  In our group we combine experiments, simulations, theory and design.
