Ionic polymer metal composites used as an actuator
Contributor:Al-Allaq, Aiman H.; DeHerrera, Brandon; Ansaf, Bahaa; DePalma, Jude; Duong, Trung; Jaksic, Nebojsa I.; Li, Boyan
Ionic Polymer Metal Composites (IPMC) are synthetic composite nanomaterials which can exhibit large dynamic deformation under a low electric field. The applications of these artificial muscles range from biomedical to ...
3-D printing metal objects project
Contributor:Armijo, James; Daniel, D. Mike; Ansaf, Bahaa; DePalma, Jude; Duong, Trung; Jaksic, Nebojsa I.
Existing machines capable of 3D printing metal objects can cost in the range of millions of dollars and the process can be dangerous. It is desirable to develop a process that is inexpensive, safe, and open source based. ...
Nanotechnology electrospinning experiment
Contributor:Wolfram, Marcus; Daniel, D. Mike; Vigil, Joey; Ansaf, Bahaa; DePalma, Jude; Duong, Trung; Jaksic, Nebojsa I.
Electrospinning is a technique which has been used in order to successfully create polymer nanofibers. In this process, a charged polymer jet is collected on a grounded collection plate. A polymer jet is formed when an ...
