Hydrophobicity and oleophobicity are highly desirable properties for materials that are used in a wide range of applications. In this context, poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (teflon) is considered to be the “benchmark” low-surfacefree-energy material as it combines water repellence with other desirable properties. Unfortunately, the use of teflon comes with(More)
A new DNA-mimetic π-conjugated polymer poly(triphenylamine-carbazole) (PTC-U) has been prepared which exhibits high thermal stability, non-corrosion, excellent hole injection and electron-blocking abilities in the solid state owing to the uracil induced physical cross-linking. In addition, a trilayer device with PTC-U as a hole injection/transport layer is(More)
We have used a sol-gel spin-coating process to fabricate a new metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitor comprising a 10 nm-thick high-k thin dielectric HfO(2) film on a flexible polyimide (PI) substrate. The surface morphology of this HfO(2) film was investigated using atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy, which confirmed that continuous(More)
A new process for modifying a polymeric material for use as a hole injection transport layer in organic light-emitting diodes has been studied, which is through 2π + 2π photodimerization of a DNA-mimetic π-conjugated poly(triphenylamine-carbazole) presenting pendent uracil groups (PTC-U) under 1 h of UV irradiation. Multilayer florescence OLED (Organic(More)
We describe the development and application of an imaging protocol, which evolves a scanning probe's atomic structure in parallel with automated optimization of the scan parameters. Our protocol coerces the system into a state that produces a specific atomic resolution image type without human involvement. Abstract We use numerical simulations to(More)
Uracil-terminated telechelic sulfonated polyimides (SPI-U) were transformed into noncovalent network membranes through biocomplementary hydrogen bonding recognition in the presence of an adenine-based crosslinking agent. SPI-U membrane exhibited dramatically improved methanol permeability, oxidative stability, proton conductivity, and selectivity relative(More)
A new organic-organic nanoscale composite thin-film (NCTF) dielectric has been synthesized by solution deposition of 1-bromoadamantane and triblock copolymer (Pluronic P123, BASF, EO20-PO70-EO20), in which the precursor solution has been achieved with organic additives. We have used a sol-gel process to make a metal-insulator-metal capacitor (MIM)(More)
This paper describes the miscibility and self-assembly, mediated by hydrogen-bonding interactions, of new block copolymer/nanoparticle blends. The morphologies adopted by the immiscible poly[(ε-caprolactone)-block-(4-vinyl pyridine)] (PCL-b-P4VP) diblock copolymer changes upon increasing the number of competitive hydrogen-bonding interactions after adding(More)
We have synthesized poly(methyl methacrylate- b-4-vinylpyridine) (PMMA- b-P4VP) and poly(styrene- r-vinylphenol) (PS- r-PVPh) copolymers by using anionic and free radical polymerizations, respectively. Well-defined micelles through hydrogen bonding have been prepared by mixing PMMA- b-P4VP diblock copolymer and PS- r-PVPh random copolymer in a single(More)
In this study, we synthesized core/shell structures comprising monodisperse 3-μm SiO(2) microspheres and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs, ca. 6.7 nm) as the core and shell components, respectively. Using a layer-by-layer cross-linking process with a dithiol cross-linking agent, we prepared low-permittivity AuNP-encapsulated high-permittivity SiO(2) core/shell(More)
