SCPN Based Thermoplastics

Our first experimental paper in our ongoing¬†collaboration with the Diesendruck group on single chain polymer nanoparticles (SCPN) is out in Macromolecules. This manuscript presents the first ever mechanical testing on bulk polymers composed entirely of this novel SCPN architecture for which bulk properties can be tailored by changing the degree of SCPN cross-linking. Or Galant […]

South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Invited Talk

Professor Silberstein visited the Mechanical Engineering department at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology this past week. SMSMT is the top engineering school in South Dakota and has strong industrial ties. Prof Silberstein’s talk entitled “The Cornell Synchrotron and Nonwoven Mechanics” introduced how x-rays can be used to study materials and then highlighted […]
