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.

Design of Optoelectronically-active Polymers for Organic Photovoltaic Applications
08 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...
Energy and Nanoscience A More Perfect Union
29 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
Huge problems of energy and sustainability confront the science/engineering community, mankind, and our planet. The energy problem comes in many dimensions, including supply, demand, conservation, transportation, and storage. This overview will stress the nature of these problems, and offer a...

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...

Multiscale Modeling of the Mechanical Behavior of Polymer-Based Nanocomposites
25 Mar 2004 |
Polymers filled with nanoscale fillers (carbon nanotubes or nanoparticles) exhibit enhanced properties compared with the neat polymer and with the polymer filled with micron-sized fillers at same volume fraction. Most interestingly, combinations of exceptional properties may be obtained as, for...
Nanomaterials in Biosensing Using Ion Selective Field Effect Transistors and Metal Particles
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Nalam Madhusudhana Rao
The multifunctionality, multilayerable architechture and size of nanomaterials offer tremendous opportunities in developing sensing platforms. Ion Selective Field Effect Transistors (ISFET) are solid state and robust pH/ion sensing devices with excellent “voltage vs. ion concentration”...
Nanotribology, Nanomechanics and Materials Characterization Studies
08 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Bharat Bhushan
Fundamental nanotribological studies provide insight to molecular origins of interfacial phenomena including adhesion, friction, wear and lubrication. Friction and wear of lightly loaded micro/nano components are highly dependent on the surface interactions (few atomic layers). Nanotribological...
