Rheology of Lyotropic Nanomaterial Liquid Crystals
Processing of lyotropic nanomaterial dispersions is increasingly recognized as a scalable route for producing large ordered assemblies of anisotropic nanomaterials. Achieving controlled alignment in solid materials produced from dispersions requires understanding the dispersions’ rheological properties. It is well established that lyotropic dispersions of rod-like polymers typically have the following rheological signatures: a maximum in the viscosity

Trainer: Dr. Virginia Davis
Dr. Davis earned her Ph.D. from Rice University in 2006 under the guidance of Professor Matteo Pasquali and the late Nobel Laureate Richard E. Smalley. Prior to attending Rice, Dr. Davis worked for eleven years in Shell Chemicals' polymer businesses in the US and Europe. Her industrial assignments included manufacturing, technical service, research, and global marketing management.All of these assignments were focused on enabling new polymer formulations to become useful consumer products.
