Controlled Cracking and Shape Recovery in Polymers by Jiexi Huang Chair: Professor Michael D. Thouless Cracks and pores in polymers can be used as functional micro/nano structures, enabling mass-processing fabrication that is simple and cost-effective. Such technologies are especially popular for biological applications. To unlock the full potential of these technologies, we need to understand the behaviors and the mechanics behind them. An accurate prediction and precise control of these… CONTINUE READING
