Diblock Copolymers to Create Nano-Structured Morphologies (Posted 09/02/17)

Faculty Sponsor: Andrew Peters | Website

UG/M.S./Ph.D.: M.S. or Ph.D.

Description: Blending of diblock copolymers to create intricate nano-structured morphologies. Diblock copolymers (polymers composed of two chemically distinct blocks) naturally phase separate into an array of nanometer sized structures called morphologies. By blending various diblock copolymers together, the number of possible morphologies may increase exponentially, allowing greater control over nanostructured materials.

Qualifications: Students interested in either experimental or computational approaches are welcome.

Diblock Copolymers to Create Nano-Structured Morphologies (Posted 09/02/17)

Faculty Sponsor:  Andrew Peters | Website

UG/M.S./Ph.D.: M.S. or Ph.D.

Description: Self-assembly of block polymer grafted nanoparticles. By attaching block polymers, which have an inherent ability to phase separate and create nanometer sized features, to nanoparticles, such nanoparticles can be precisely located within a polymer matrix. Precise control over this placement is key to the creation of metamaterials that exhibit physical properties not realized for the individual components. This project will be computationally heavy and will include the development of new simulation techniques.

Qualifications: Students with computational experience are preferred
