    Författare :Maria Asplund; Hans von Holst; Olle Inganäs; Thomas Stieglitz; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuroprosthetics; conjugated polymers; conducting polymers; PEDOT; functional electrical stimulation; neural electrodes; Medical engineering; Medicinsk teknik; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Functional materials; Funktionella material;

    Sammanfattning : Within the field of neuroprosthetics the possibility to use implanted electrodes for communication with the nervous system is explored. Much effort is put into the material aspects of the electrode implant to increase charge injection capacity, suppress foreign body response and build micro sized electrode arrays allowing close contact with neurons.

    Sammanfattning : Plastics are extremely diverse in terms of chemical composition, properties and possible applications, and are widely distributed in the society and the environment. In the last 15 years the global annual production has doubled, reaching 245 million tons in 2008. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Liquid crystalline polymers for nonlinear optics : pyroelectric polymers and ferroelectric dendrimers

    Författare :Jonas Örtegren; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with liquid crystalline materialsincluding monomers, side-chain polymers, crosslinked polymers,and dendrimers. The materials are pyroelectric, meaning thatthere is a macroscopic electric polarization in the material,which is energetically stable in the absence of externalfields. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Conjugated polymers for optoelectronics

    Författare :Lars Johan Lindgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polymer Light-Emitting Diodes; Conjugated polymers; Polyfluorenes; Polymer Solar Cells;

    Sammanfattning : The work presented in thesis is divided into two parts; conjugated polymers for light-emitting diodes and conjugated polymers for solar cells. The main focus was on the synthesis and characterisation of the conjugated polymers, together with device preparation and characterisation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Dendrimers and dendronized polymers : synthesis and characterization

    Författare :Andreas Nyström; Anders Hult; A. Dieter Schlüter; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dendrimers; dendronized polymers; atom transfer radical polymerisation; ring-opening metathesis polymerization; reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer polymerization; 2; 2-bis methylol propionic acid; tri-block copolymers; rheology; differential scanning calorimerty; 1H-NMR self-diffusion; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Sammanfattning : The goal of this work was to synthesize complex macromolecular architectures such as dendrimers and dendronized polymers, and evaluate the effect from the dendrons on the optical and material properties. The work presented in this doctoral thesis, Dendrimers and Dendronized Polymers - Synthesis and Characterization, is divided into one minor and one major part. LÄS MER
