Sample text

The blade acts as a ‘squeegee’ where the flow orientation upon shearing of the polymer encourages polymer molecular orientation and therefore alignment within the polymer matrix. Prior to curing, the polymer is a workable viscous gel, but it can be cured in a matter of seconds after excitation from a UV source, minimizing the time for relaxation of the SWCNTs. Layer-by-layer assembly The use of layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly techniques has been demonstrated to have exceptional uniformity and versatility for constructing nanostructure composites with SWCNTs.
