Application property of double dynamics polymer networks

My project is the application property of double dynamics polymer networks. The main task will be combining property measurement and mesoscopic dynamics/structure characterization. To achieve the goal, diffusing wave spectroscopy (DWS) is applied to measure the dynamics in polymer network during fracture and other different condition.

DWS is sensitive to mesoscopic dynamics of polymer network and compatible with other characterization methods. With correlation from images as function of time, dynamics of polymer network in mesoscopic scale can be quantitatively characterized. Combined with macroscopic mechanical measurement and mechanophore study on bonds breakage, we will be able to provide a hierarchical model for fracture mechanism. On the other hand, the mesoscopic changes can be detectable even long time before any macroscopic behavior, which will provide the methods to predict the fracture before actual failure of the material.
