Research Description

Shape Memory Polymers
Vapor Sensitive Polymers have a variety of potential applications in our society. When exposed to different organic chemical vapors, these polymers will express changes in color as light is reflected off their surface. The scope of my research is to develop methods to distinguish color changes between polymer exposures to different vapors.
