Designer Colloidal Nanocrystal Materials for Electronic and Optical Applications
Semiconductor and plasmonic nanocrystals are known for their size and shape dependent photo-luminescence and localized surface plasmon resonances, respectively. In this talk, I will describe the use of semiconductor and ...
Layered and Fibrillar Polymeric Systems by NanoExtrusion Forced Assembly
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-11-07)
Recently, numerous new synthetic approaches have been used to develop macromolecular materials that “self-assemble” into nano-scale morphologies. This lecture addresses another approach – the solventless “forced-assembly” ...
Interface and Interphase in Polymeric Multilayer Materials
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-11-09)
Lessons from biology have revealed that natural materials systems have hierarchical structures that are specifically designed to accommodate a unique spectrum of required properties. These systems always have many scale ...
Applications for New Nanolayered Composite and Membrane Filters
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-11-08)
The fundamental discoveries with polymer micro/nanolayered and fibrillar systems are being “translated” into new novel products. Three examples will be described in detail. First the development of graded index lenses, ...
Ionic Liquid/Block Polymer Nanocomposites: Remarkably Versatile, Functional Materials
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017-02-10)
Ionic liquids are an emerging class of solvents with an appealing set of physical attributes. These include negligible vapor pressure, impressive chemical and thermal stability, tunable solvation properties, high ionic ...
