In this project, a joint team of physicists and biologists have studied spider silk and considered an in-depth, quantitative investigation of natural and synthetic models of the in-droplet micron-scale windlass phenomenon. The team has unraveled the physics of spiders' capture silk and has designed an inorganic, self-assembled version of this material. Indeed, they have been able to assemble a functional artificial windlass system based on the combination of a fiber bearing synthetic droplets.
