Abstract:

We aim to understand how ultrasound waves can be used to create organized patterns of nanoparticles in a host medium such as a polymer matrix material. The critical difference between the ultrasound technology studied in this project, and other directed self-assembly techniques is its scalability and flexibility. During this 9 month project, we have derived the theory and implemented a model to simulate how patterns of nanoparticles dispersed in a host medium are assembled by means of standing ultrasound waves.
