Abstract:

 

In my presentation, I will first introduce a number of my current research topics based on stimuli-responsive materials and structures and 3D printing then focus on two studies about how we can harness behaviors of polymeric composites with potential applications in sensing, healthcare and, protection.

Highly sensitive flexible pressure sensors are subjects of growing interest for various applications including wearable devices and internet of things. Current technologies on piezoresistive sensors rely on costly materials and fabrication methods such as graphene-based and micro-structured composites limiting accessibility and scalability. Here we report a facile process to fabricate ultra-sensitive piezoresistive flexible pressure sensors by introducing mesoscale pores within low-cost polydimethylsiloxane matrix/multi-wall carbon nanotubes composites. We show ultra-high sensitivity with a strain gauge factor over 300 with a fraction of cost compared with the current high performance materials. We also demonstrate the application of the sensors by capturing gentle pressures (1 Pa~100 Pa) such as water droplet, 1-gram weight loading, cockroach footsteps and finger tapping. Due to its outstanding performance and the low cost, our composite sensor can contribute to expanding the scope of applications of electronic skins, interactive human-machine interface systems and internet of things.

Nature produces outstanding materials for structural applications such as bones and wood that can adapt to their surrounding environment. For instance, bone regulates mineral quantity proportional to the amount of stress. It becomes stronger in locations subjected to the higher mechanical loads. This leads to the formation of mechanically efficient structures for optimal biomechanical and energy-efficient performance. However, it is a challenge for synthetic materials to change and adapt their structures and properties to address the changes of loading conditions. To address the challenge, we are inspired by the findings that bones are formed by mineralization of ions from blood onto scaffolds. We report a material system that triggers mineral synthesis from ionic solutions on organic scaffolds upon mechanical loadings and/or damages so that it can self-adapt to mechanical loadings and regenerate upon damages. For example, we observed ~30% increase in the modulus of the material upon periodic loadings for 3 days. We also observed that the material could self-repair damages generated by removing ~5 μm thick minerals from the matrix, in 7 days. We envision that our findings can open new strategies for making synthetic materials with self-adaptability and self-repair capability.
