Thermal Properties Of Soft Nanomaterials: Thermal Measurement Design, Yu Han, Meng Pan, Amy Marconnet, Collier Miers

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Soft materials like hydrogels have multiple tunable material properties because of their unique structures. Due to the ability to respond to stimuli like temperature or chemical environment, they have numerous applications in different fields like delivering drugs inside the human body and other medical uses. Details of the thermal transport mechanisms, as well as the overall thermal properties, are critical for a variety of applications. Multi-property measurements elucidate the underlying transport mechanisms in the soft materials. This research demonstrates a new methodology of measuring thermal properties of soft materials. This work uses the 3w method [1,2] for measuring the ...
