Drastic swelling-induced softening of polymer networks with non-covalent cross-linking bonds

Our recent work introduces a microscopically motivated model for the swelling response of polymer networks with non-covalent cross-linking bonds.

Ph.D. and Post-doc positions available at the Technion, Israel

Our group is part of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Techion – Israel Institute of Technology, located in Haifa, Israel.

We employ theoretical and experimental tools to understand the relations between the micro-structure and the macroscopic response of soft materials. Materials of interest include electro-active polymers, 3D printed lattice structures, biopolymers, and gels.

On the origins of the electro-mechanical response of dielectric elastomers

Recent theoretical works have shown that the electro-mechanical performance of dielectric elastomers can be enhanced through micro-structural design.

Electroelasticity of polymer networks

This work introduces a new microscopically-motivated model for the electromechanical response of elastomers:

The merit of this novel model is demonstrated in the following paper
