The application of cyclic polymers in surface functionalization enables an extremely broad modulation of interfacial physicochemical and functional properties, surpassing the attractive characteristics provided by commonly applied, linear polymer "brushes". This is valid on macroscopic, inorganic... read more about MEMS/MatSci Seminar: Polymer Surfaces Group, Department of Materials »

"Topological Floppy Modes in Aperiodic Networks and a Mechanical Duality Theorem" Topological states of matter have been intensively studied in crystals, leading to fascinating phenomena such as scattering-free edge current in topological insulators. However, the power of topological protection... read more about Duke Physics Colloquium: Topological Floppy Modes in Aperiodic Networks and a Mechanical Duality Theorem »

Polymeric materials comprising mechano-chemically active components are able to undergo spontaneous structural rearrangements that generate internal stresses and motion. These stresses can be particularly large in the case of liquid crystalline polymers, where elasticity plays an important role on... read more about MEMS/MatSci Seminar: Liquid Crystals - From Simple Self-Assembled Constructs, to Autonomous Materials »
