Composite Materials


Overcoming the Achilles’ Heel of Processing of Polymer Nanocomposites: Achieving Well-Dispersed Polymer-Graphite, Polymer-Carbon Nanotube, and Polymer-Graphene Nanocomposites with Major Property Enhancements by Solid-State Shear Pulverization

, , , ,
Polymer nanocomposites, particularly with carbon-based nanofiller, hold promise for large-scale, commercial application of novel materials with enhanced, tunable properties. Unfortunately, a stumbling block in achieving this goal on a commercial scale is the remarkable difficulty [...]

Extremely Stretchable Electrode based on Combination of Inkjet-Printed Silver and Conductive Composite for Stretchable Lighting Applications

, , , , , , , ,
We have studied stretchable electrode based on combination of inkjet-printed silver electrode and conductive composite materials for stretchable lighting device applications. Previous stretchable electrodes were mainly realized by either vacuum deposition or inkjet-printing of conductive [...]
