High Performance Abrasion-Resistant Materials: Lessons from Nature

Radular teeth from Cryptochiton Stelleri, which grasping on the rock in the ocean to get the algae for food, are extremely hard and abrasion resistant. We are investigating the structure and function relationship and also the biomineralization process of these teeth. We want to get a biomimetic material that has similar mechanical performance and apply it in industry in the future.
