Patterning Strategies and Complexities

Different techniques have developed to pattern polymers on the nano- and submicro-meter scale.

 

The Park Systems 2019 Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series kicks off with Nanostructured Polymer Brushes With AFM, focusing on how Atomic Force Microscopy is a vital tool in characterizing the morphology of grafted polymer brushes.

The 2019 Webinar Series will feature materials science and industry-leading expert Dr. Rigoberto Advincula, Professor, Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University and Editor-in-Chief of MRS Communications, Materials Research Society.

This month’s webinar will discuss how surface probe methods enable researchers to gain a better understanding of the effect of polymer density on the behavior – even stimuli-response behavior – of polymer brushes. We will demonstrate the use of modified techniques to enhance surface probe measurements which can be built into the tip design or the experimental design.
