Materials Polymers

Advanced Materials and Polymers

The department has an internationally recognized research program in structural, functional, and biological materials, spanning synthesis, characterization, processing, modeling activities, with strong links to academic, government, and industrial research centers. Areas include plasma processing (eg. nanofluids, carbon nanotubes, advanced coatings) and polymeric or “soft” materials research (eg. self-assembling or structured materials, complex fluids, liquid crystals, colloids and soft composites and novel polymerization methods).
