Controlled Nanostructured Polymers for Biomedical Applications

Presented by Melik Demirel
Pearce Assistant Professor of Engineering
Penn State University

The ability to control the physicochemical properties of surfaces is important for many areas, such as biomedical or optical coatings, sensors, and catalyst supports. We have been developing nanostructured polymer thin films based on oblique angle polymerization (OAP) for these applications. [1-2] OAP is a bottom-up approach capable of fabricating high aspect ratio films exhibiting controlled morphologies without the need for complex lithographic processes. Properties of the resulting films, such as wettability, porosity, roughness, reactivity, or crystallinity are readily tuned via choice of deposition conditions and polymer functional groups. In this presentation, we will describe our process for creating nanostructured polymer surfaces and present recent results on biosensor and biomedical applications.
