Zhongyuan gave an oral presentation at MRS Fall 2021!
This presentation discusses the unique microstructures created by sequential infiltration of nanoscale oxide into SU-8 negative photoresist, which is used for MEMS structures. These Nanocomposites materials exhibit ultrahigh modulus of resilience (200 MJ/m^3), which is much higher than any other engineering materials. Their high modulus of resilience results from metal-like high strength but polymer-like low Young’s modulus. This unusual combination is potentially useful for developing a strong-but-flexible material that can be used for flexible display.
