Past graduate student Xiaoming Fan published a paper titled, “MoS2 actuators: reversible mechanical responses of MoS2-polymer nanocomposites to photons” in Nanotechnology as Fast Track Communications. Congratulations Fan!

Dr. Panchapakesan and past student Dr. Loomis submitted a patent application on Stimuli Responsive Polymer Composites.

Dr. Panchapakesan gave a talk at the MRS April meeting in San Francisco on “Programmable Skins based on Core-Shell Microsphere/Nanotube/Polymer Composites”.

Past graduate student Benjamin King published a paper titled “Vacuum filtration based formation of liquid crystal films of semiconducting carbon nanotubes and high performance transistor devices” in journal nanotechnology in 2014. Congrats Ben!

Past graduate student Fan published a paper on “Nanotube liquid crystal elastomers: photomechanical response and flexible energy conversion of layered polymer composites”, in Nanotechnology. This was also selected as a webcover in the journal. Congratulations Fan!
