Jorge Wu Mok ‚Äúplays‚ÄĚ with conjugated polymers and designs stretchable, malleable photovoltaics for the conversion of solar energy into electricity.
LCE‚Äôs, as they are known, are stimuli-responsive networks of polymers that combine the elasticity of elastomers with the self-organization of liquid crystals. Morgan Barnes, a second-year graduate student in materials science and nanoengineering at Rice, foresees a time when they might be used in the manufacture of biomedical devices.
