Quantifying the Mechanical Properties of Ultra-Thin Glassy Polymer Films

R. Konane Bay
Glassy polymer thin films are essential in many applications, including osmotic membranes and flexible electronics. Thinner films will benefit these technologies by increasing energy efficiency and lowering the cost of materials. However, as thickness decreases, the polymer films become fragile, making the films experimentally challenging to handle and to quantitatively study the mechanical properties. Many studies have focused on the changes in chain mobility and entanglements, while there are few studies on the changes in...
