Exploring the Interface: Improving the Mechanical Properties of Silicon Nitride Fibre – Polymer Composites

, , , , ,
Interfacial interactions between a fibre reinforcement and a polymer matrix are a fundamental contributor towards the mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of fibre-polymer composites. Strong adhesion at the phase boundary facilitates efficient property transfer between [...]

Subsurface characterization of high dielectric nanostructures in low dielectric polymer matrix using Electric Force Microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy

, , , , , , , , ,
Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) are two powerful techniques for surface characterization of nanostructures. With the development of nanotechnology, there is a growing need to nondestructively characterize nanostructures at the subsurface [...]
