Force-induced activation of covalent bonds in mechanoresponsive polymeric materials
It is found that pronounced changes in colour and fluorescence emerge with the accumulation of plastic deformation, indicating that in these polymeric materials the transduction of mechanical force into the ring-opening reaction is an activated process. Expand
Thermal conductance of hydrophilic and hydrophobic interfaces.
Using time-domain thermoreflectance, we have measured the transport of thermally excited vibrational energy across planar interfaces between water and solids that have been chemically functionalizedExpand
Nanoscale thermal transport. II. 2003–2012
A diverse spectrum of technology drivers such as improved thermal barriers, higher efficiency thermoelectric energy conversion, phase-change memory, heat-assisted magnetic recording, thermalExpand
Three-dimensional bicontinuous ultrafast-charge and -discharge bulk battery electrodes.
This work demonstrates very large battery charge and discharge rates with minimal capacity loss by using cathodes made from a self-assembled three-dimensional bicontinuous nanoarchitecture consisting of an electrolytically active material sandwiched between rapid ion and electron transport pathways.

Stretchable batteries with self-similar serpentine interconnects and integrated wireless recharging systems.
This work introduces a set of materials and design concepts for a rechargeable lithium ion battery technology that exploits thin, low modulus silicone elastomers as substrates, with a segmented design in the active materials, and unusual 'self-similar' interconnect structures between them. Expand
Micro- and Nanoscale Deformation Measurement of Surface and Internal Planes via Digital Image Correlation
The digital image correlation (DIC) technique is successfully applied across multiple length scales through the generation of a suitable speckle pattern at each size scale. For microscaleExpand
High-power lithium ion microbatteries from interdigitated three-dimensional bicontinuous nanoporous electrodes.
The key insight is that the battery microarchitecture can concurrently optimize ion and electron transport for high-power delivery, realized here as a three-dimensional bicontinuous interdigitated microelectrodes. Expand
Effects of chemical bonding on heat transport across interfaces.
A link between interfacial bonding character and thermal conductance at the atomic level is experimentally demonstrated, which will enable future quantification of other interfacial phenomena and will be a critical tool to stimulate and validate new theories describing the mechanisms of interfacial heat transport.
