Optical devices were fabricated by sandwiching a “monolithic” poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-N-(3-aminopropyl) methacrylamide hydrochloride) (pNIPAm-co-APMAH) microgel layer between two semitransparent Au layers. These devices, referred to as etalons, exhibit characteristic multipeak reflectance...
A versatile surface modification technique was developed to yield poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm) microgel-based thin films on a variety of substrates, e.g., metals, nonmetals, and polymers. Because the chemistry, and hence functionality and responsivity, of the pNIPAm-based microgels is...
A device composed of a poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (pNIPAm-co-AAc) microgel layer sandwiched between two thin Au layers (all on a glass support) was used as a novel platform for controlled and triggered small molecule delivery. Tris (4-(dimethylamino)phenyl)methylium chloride...
Development and analysis of responsive polymers as sensing elements for storage conditions and freshness of foodDownload
As the global population growth continues to increase the needs for higher production of food, governments, organizations, and individuals are faced with the task to implement strategies to mitigate the impact that food waste has in food security, the economy and the environment. One of the...
Photothermally induced optical property changes of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) microgel-based etalonsDownload
Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) microgel-based optical devices were designed such that they can be stimulated to change their optical properties in response to light produced by a light-emitting diode (LED). The devices were fabricated by sandwiching the synthesized microgels between two Cr/Au layers...
Poly (N‐isopropylacrylamide) microgel‐based etalons for determining the concentration of ethanol in gasolineDownload
A device composed of a poly (N‐isopropylacrylamide)‐based microgel layer sandwiched between two thin gold layers was used as a platform for determining the amount of ethanol in gasoline (octane number of 87). This device, also known as an etalon, has unique optical properties, which depend on the...
