11. Analyzing a Co-Polymer Aramid Fiber for Use in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Polymers
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Amanda Lattam Forster, Scott A Wight, Joy P Dunkers, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Since the well-publicized failure of body armor used by a police officer, it has become imperative that the long-term properties and performance of new fibers being considered for use be understood. The range of interest is from the molecular proper ...

12. Morphing Metal-Polymer Janus Particles
Topic: Polymers
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Lewis M Cox, Jason Philip Killgore, Zhengwei Li, Zheng Zhang, Donna C. Hurley, Jianliang Xiao, Yifu Ding
Abstract: Shape memory polymers have the unique ability to memorize and recover their permanent shapes after being programmed to hold high strain levels up to a few hundred percent. While studies have traditionally focused on utilizing shape memory effects ...

13. Single PPTA fiber tensile properties from quasi-static and high strain rate tests
Topic: Polymers
Published: 10/23/2013
Authors: Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Steven P Mates, Walter G McDonough, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes

14. Swelling of Ultrathin Molecular Layer-by-Layer Polyamide Water Desalination Membranes
Topic: Polymers
Published: 9/30/2013
Authors: Edwin P Chan, Allison P Young, Jung-Hyun Lee, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: The water vapor swelling behavior of ultrathin crosslinked aromatic polyamide films, synthesized via molecular layer-by-layer deposition, is characterized via specular X-ray reflectivity. The results show that these films expand only along the thickn ...

15. Total free energy governs cell morphology ‹ A possible solution to obtain intrinsic cell modulus
Topic: Polymers
Published: 9/26/2013
Authors: Martin Y Chiang, Yanzi Yangben , Nancy J Lin, Li Yang
Abstract: Cells adjust their morphology in response to physical and chemical interactions with their environment. In this report, we deem that the fundamental nature of free energies associated with cell/substrate interactions regulates adherent cell morpholog ...

16. Feeling Small: Exploring the tactile perception limits
Topic: Polymers
Published: 9/12/2013
Authors: Lisa Skedung, Martin Arvidsson, Jun Y. Chung, Christopher M Stafford, Birgitta Berglund, Mark W. Rutland
Abstract: The human finger is exquisitely sensitive in distinguishing different materials, but the question remains as to what length scales are capable of being discriminated in active touch? We combine psychophysical approaches with materials science to man ...

17. Non-rigid and tough calcium phosphate cement scaffold seeded with umbilical cord stem cell for bone repair
Topic: Polymers
Published: 8/1/2013
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr, Hockin H. K. Xu, Michael D Weir, WahWah Thein-Han
Abstract: Human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSCs) are a promising alternative to bone marrow MSCs, which require invasive procedures to harvest. The objectives of this study were to develop a novel non-rigid and tough calcium phosphate cement (CP ...

18. Strain rate effect on single PPTA fiber tensile behaviour
Topic: Polymers
Published: 7/28/2013
Authors: Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Stefan D Leigh, Walter G McDonough, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=913925

19. Molecular Layer-by-Layer Assembled Reverse Osmosis Membranes for Water Desalination
Topic: Polymers
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Joung-Eun Gu, Seunghye Lee, Wansuk Choi, Jong Suk Lee, Bo-Young Kim, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford, Jun-Young Chung, Joona Bang, Jung-Hyun Lee
Abstract: Here, we report on the successful design, construction, and performance of membranes constructed using the mLbL process and show that these membranes exceed the performance of membranes synthesized through conventional interfacial polymerization. In ...

20. Mechanochromic photonic gels
Topic: Polymers
Published: 6/10/2013
Authors: Edwin P Chan, A M Urbas, Joseph J Walish, Edwin L Thomas
Abstract: Polymer gels are remarkable materials with physical structures that can adapt significantly and quite rapidly with changes in the local environmental changes such as temperature, light intensity, electrochemistry, and mechanical force. An interes ...
