Abstract:

Our project focuses on low-density hybrid nanocomposites where polymers are confined at molecular length scales in a nanoporous matrix. Our goal is to develop a fundamental understanding of the effects of hyper-confinement in low-density hybrids, which provides guidelines for exploring the limits of strengthening and toughening to create mechanically robust hybrids for aerospace applications. We also exploit the opportunity of creating high-temperature low-density hybrids for aerospace applications by the combination of high-temperature low-density hybrid nanoporous matrix together with polyimides with superior temperature capabilities.
