705 Polymer Thin Films and Interfaces

Thursday, November 17, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Continental 2 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session is dedicated to investigations of the chemistry, structure, morphology, and properties of polymeric materials in interfacial regions. Understanding these interfacial regions is becoming increasingly important as the trend towards miniaturization and integration continues, leading to devices with an increasing number of interfaces and complex material formulations. Theoretical, computational, and experimental papers are welcome on polymeric interfacial properties as well as research investigating emerging technologies through the exploitation of polymeric interfacial phenomena. ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status*** +++Note: this session will be sorted jointly with Nanostructured Polymer Films. Authors may submit to either session.+++
