The Phd student will work on two sites:
- The Paul Pascal Research Center (CRPP) is a laboratory of the CNRS and of the University of Bordeaux, located in Pessac. The CRPP is a widely recognized for the development and characterization of complex systems, the laboratory covers diverse areas of research from soft matter to advanced materials to the interface of physical chemistry and biology.
- The Centre de Biochimie Structurale (CBS) in Montpellier, which is an interdisciplinary centre and depends on multiple entities: INSERM, CNRS (INSB), and University of Montpellier.

In a context where new technologies require ever-increasing information storage, a novel powerful form of computing could be realized by constructing an amorphous medium from a population of elements that could respond to an external stimulus through self-organization.
To achieve this goal, we will study a class of computing elements that has received limited attention so far: digitally encoded submicron colloids, which can switch on demand between distinguishable states. This project aims at (i) the synthesis of two types of patchy fluorescent nanoparticles with a well-controlled morphology, (ii) the experimental in-situ study of their programmed assembly into encoded chiral clusters by a combination of advanced techniques, iii) the readout of the information in a highly parallelized way thanks to 3D multicolor super-resolution microscopy, which will allow us to follow the thermally induced switching of the clusters between distinct configurations.
