Professor Chris N. Bowman's Distinguished Research Lecture will focus on the ability of polymeric materials to respond in a “smart” manner to an applied stimulus, in particular where these materials are designed to be either formed or have their properties and shape altered upon exposure to light. These materials are formed by altering the most basic molecular structure of the polymer, i.e., the monomer unit, to include novel chemistries that enable the materials to react or respond in the desired manner. When polymer formation and properties are controlled by light exposure, they are particularly valuable where a desired reaction or response must be controlled to occur only at the desired time and location for applications as diverse as additive manufacturing, smart windows, and as photolithographic masks for production of semiconductors.
