MEAM PHD Thesis Defense: “Control of Dry Adhesion via Mechanics and Structuring”

September 23 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Dry adhesives that rely on van der Waals forces have a number of applications due to their versatility, reusability, and repeatability. Applications include small-scale pick-and-place and microtransfer printing processes, wearable sensors, climbing/perching robots, and robotic gripping. However, van der Waals forces are macroscopically short-range and are the weakest of the interatomic forces, so careful mechanical […]
