Electrohydrodynamic Patterning of Functional Materials by Pola Goldberg Oppenheimer

By Pola Goldberg Oppenheimer

This thesis explores a path to set off and regulate the constitution formation method in skinny movies via robust electrical fields. We examine, identify and follow using the electrohydrodynamic (EHD) lithography as a flexible patterning device at the sub-micrometre and nanometre size scales for sensible fabrics. skinny motion pictures are ubiquitous, they're present in nature and utilized in virtually each element of way of life. whereas movie instabilities are usually bad in nature and expertise, they are often applied to provide constructions through accurately controlling the destabilization of the movie. EHD lithography makes use of instabilities precipitated via an electrical box to manufacture periodic constructions. EHD patterning is determined to develop into a aggressive candidate for inexpensive lithographic know-how for a few functions. Herein, the utilized power of this lithographic technique is explored via increasing its applicability to a large diversity of fabrics and via a simultaneous patterning of multilayer platforms or sensible polymers yielding hierarchical architectures with novel functionalities.
EHD trend formation permits for example, the fabrication of multi-scale established arrays as floor stronger Raman scattering (SERS)-active structures. additionally, crystalline and conductive polymers are patterned utilizing the EHD procedure and the underlying constitution formation mechanisms are mentioned. This extension in the direction of practical fabric structures deals attention-grabbing clients for power functions. Findings of this thesis are very promising to be used in optoelectronic devices.
