305 Multifunctional Composites

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Golden Gate 5 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
The next generation of composite structures possess smart multifunctional properties. The aim is to simultaneously embed responsiveness featuring mechanical, electronic, thermal, or other types of actuation/response. Optimization of balance of properties can be achieved by mixtures of nanoparticles or nanofeatures present in the composite, and morphology can be exquisitely complex. We invite papers exploring how composites can formualated optimally to be tuneable and interactive in any application ranging from: sensors to ballistics, catalytic conversion of pollutants in the environment to microfluidic valves, medical applications to energy-saving window coatings.
