On the origin of supercontraction in spider silk

Spider silk is a protein material that exhibits extraordinary and nontrivial properties such as the ability to soften and decrease its length by up to ∼60% upon exposure to high humidity. This counter-intuitive process is commonly called supercontraction and is the result of a transition from a highly oriented glassy phase to a disoriented rubbery phase. In our new paper (published in biomacromolecules) we derive a model that explains the origins of the supercontraction phenomena.

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

Looking for Research/Postdoc Opportunity.

Dear Fellow Members,


I am currently pursuing my PhD research under the supervision of Prof. Ralf Müller at the Institute for Applied Mechanics, TU Kaiserslautern, Germany. I have submitted my dissertation on October 2014. And expecting to defend my PhD work on March, 2015.
