Engineering Structure and Properties in Polymer Thin Films and Nanoparticles


Rodney D. Priestley
Department of Chemical & Biological Engineering, Princeton University

Polymer thin films and nanoparticles will enable emerging nanoscale technologies, including nanoimprint lithography for microelectronics, membranes for efficient separations and batteries, polymer solar cells for energy, coatings for barrier protection, nano-vehicles for controlled drug delivery, and components for fluorescent imaging and photonic structures.  These commercial demands have dramatically escalated the need for new routes to process polymer thin films and nanoparticles with greater control over structure and properties. In this talk, we discuss Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation (MAPLE) and Flash NanoPrecipitation (FNP) as unique approaches for the processing of polymer thin films and nanoparticles with greater control over structure and properties as compared to conventional processing methods.
