Intricate evolutions of multiple-period post-buckling patterns in bilayers

Surface instability of compliant film/substrate bilayers has raised considerable interests due to its broad applications such as wrinkle-driven surface renewal and antifouling, shape-morphing for camouflaging skins, and micro/nano-scale surface patterning control. However, it is still a challenge to precisely predict and continuously trace secondary bifurcation transitions in the nonlinear post-buckling region. Here, we develop lattice models to precisely capture the nonlinear morphology evolution with multiple mode transitions that occur in the film/substrate systems.

Postdoc position available at MIT / bioinspired thermal management

A postdoctoral associate position at MIT is available immediately, focused on the analysis and development of bioinspired, adaptive thermal management structures, by using theoretical and atomistic multi-scale modeling and simulation.
