SPEAKER:  Prof. Luyi Sun, Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, Institute of Materials Science, University of Connecticut
TIME:   June 21 (Wednesday), 10:00-11:30
Venue:   Room 528, Chemistry Building A (化学楼5楼演讲厅)
INVITER:    Prof. Xinyuan Zhu (朱新远教授)


Abstract:   

A bilayer structure composed of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) or PVA composite thin film atop thick polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) substrate was prepared. The bilayer structure shows dynamic strain-responsive optical properties. The transition between a transparent state to an opaque state can be easily achieved by uni-axially stretching and releasing the device. 


Also, a series of derivative mechanochromisms with capabilities of switching “on/off” fluorescence, changing fluorescent color, revealing/hiding information upon mechanical stimuli were prepared. Mechanical and/or moisture responsive wrinkling surface can also be achieved in a similar manner. By altering the chemical structure of the PVA top layer, three different moisture responsive dynamic wrinkling surfaces can be prepared. Selectively inducing chemical modification on the PVA surface can create moisture responsive patterned wrinkles, which can lead to applications in encryption, anti-counterfeit tab, and water indicator for circuits.
