A polymer is a large molecule (macromolecule) composed of repeating structural units typically connected by covalent chemical bonds. Whereas the term polymer is sometimes taken to refer to plastics, it actually encompasses a large class of natural and synthetic materials with a wide variety of properties.

Polymer Synthesis and Characterization in the Cloud: a nanoHUB Classroom Experience
31 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Coray Colina
In this talk, I’ll share the experience of teaching a junior undergraduate computational course in materials science and engineering, with over 70 participants. Both molecular and continuum methods were studied and applied to relevant materials problems. Students were able to build and...

IMA 2013 UQ: Bayesian Calibration of Molecular Dynamics Simulations for Composite Materials Properties
10 Feb 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Paul N. Patrone
In this talk, I discuss ongoing research whose goal is to determine, via Bayesian inference, an ensemble of inputs that represents a class of commercially important amine-cured epoxies. We construct an analytical approximation (i.e. a surrogate or emulator) of the simulations, treating the input...

Design of Optoelectronically-active Polymers for Organic Photovoltaic Applications
01 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Bryan W. Boudouris
Organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices are of great interest due to their promise of providing flexible, lightweight, and inexpensive alternatives to their currently-used inorganic counterparts. However, large-scale implementation of these modules has been hampered due to their relatively low power...

Solar Cells Lecture 5: Organic Photovoltaics
29 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
Organic solar cells make use of low-cost organic polymers forphotovoltaics. Although these solar cells may appear to be quitedifferent from solar cells made with conventional, inorganicsemiconductors (e.g. they make use of exciton generation rather than electron-hole generation) this...
