The confluence of fundamental symmetries and spin-orbit coupling is known to produce emergent electronic states in crystalline solids that are accurately described using the language of topology. This talk provides an overview of this relatively young field of research, showing how the synthesis and study of topological quantum matter yields a playground for both exotic pursuits at millikelvin temperatures (such as the realization of axion electrodynamics in condensed matter ) and pragmatic technologies that work under ambient conditions (such as…

MSE Seminar: “A Polymer Brush Approach to Controlling Biological Binding to Surfaces”

October 3 at 10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Polymer brushes are a common feature in many biological surfaces. The ability to rapidly transform a substrate from a hard, structural material to a soft, hydrogel structure over the course of a few tens of nanometers makes polymer brushes elegant materials for tailoring the biology-materials interface. Polymer brushes, because of their surface confinement, are typically stretched from the surface when compared to identical unattached polymer segments and confinement provides them with useful barrier properties. This presentation will discuss recent studies…
