Abstract:

Polymers have a unique set of rheological and mechanical properties that set them apart from other types of materials. While reducing the reliance on plastics is desirable for securing a (more) sustainable future, some application areas will continue to benefit from new developments in polymer technology. This talk will explore three areas where polymers may augment other classes of materials: (1) conducting polymers for wearable electronics, (2) insulating polymers for power cable insulation, and (3) plasmonic plastics for hydrogen sensing.

Christian Müller is a professor in Polymer Science at Chalmers University of Technology. He received an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2022 and is a Wallenberg Scholar. Prior to Chalmers he completed postdoctoral stays at ICMAB-CSIC in Barcelona and at Linköping University. He holds a Dr.Sc. in Materials Science from ETH Zürich (2008) and a M.Sci. in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University (2004). His research interests include the use of organic semiconductors and polymer blends in the fields of wearable electronics and energy technology.
