Advanced Polymer Research Laboratory

The Advanced Polymer Research Lab focuses on the general area of advanced materials, with expertise in shape-memory polymers, polymer composites, biomaterials and acoustic devices. Specifically, we have developed methods for tailoring several thermomechanical properties of acrylate polymers including the glass transition temperature and rubbery modulus. In addition, research involving the effects of ionizing radiation on synthetic shape-memory polymers has enabled a variety of mass-producible devices. Applications include acoustic devices with shape-memory and fiber-impregnated shape-memory polymer orthopedic casts. We are also exploring the synthesis of new shape-memory polymer foams with variable activations manufactured through this new process with a variety of biomedical applications. Current research is supported through various grants from the NSF and the Georgia Research Alliance. With a focus in bioengineering, the research has the potential for interdisciplinary endeavors with the Nanotech Institute, UT Southwestern, researchers in local high-tech companies and polymer chemists at UTD.
