This token represents IDC’s commitment to pursue both a multi-disciplinary and multi-scale approach to solving some of the world’s toughest design problems.

  • At the atomic scale, we see the combination of larger and smaller atoms to create the Alumina molecule.
  • At the micro-scale, the fine features of the Alumina foam can be visualized using micro-tomography. This process produces grey-scale images, which can then be converted into a 3D model.
  • The spacecraft represents the potential uses of alumina for industrial applications (i.e., the macro-scale). Alumina is currently used in high temperature applications, which are present in energy, transport and space systems.
