Tunable electrical and mechanical responses of PDMS and polypyrrole nanowire composites

Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics

Ping Du, Xi Lin, Xin Zhang

Volume 46, Number 19, Page 195303


A generic experimental procedure is presented in this work to enhance
the electrical responses of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) through
incorporation of conducting polymer nanowires, while maintaining the
desirable mechanical flexibility of PDMS. The conducting polypyrrole

A variational approach to predict percolation thresholds of nanomaterials

Study on the properties of inhomogeneous media plays a central role throughout the history of physics, e.g.
Possion’s theory on magnetism of composites, Faraday’s dielectric model of composites, Maxwell’s and later
Rayleigh’s work on conductivity of composites, and Einstein’s thesis on viscosity of fluid-particle media. As
a special branch of this field, percolation research on phase transition and critical phenomena was originated
with lattice percolation theories in 1950s [1]. The idealization of a lattice structure is convenient for analytical
