Project Details

Description

Q1. Order chemicals, begin purification and characterization of simple molecular chromophores. Ship samples to U. Michigan for MD measurements
Q2-Q5. Depending on feedback from initial U. Michigan MD measurements, begin deuterating simple molecular chromphores. Begin synthesis of twisted chromophores. Begin theoretical analysis with Mark Ratner.
Q6-Q9. Ship first twist chromophores to U. Michigan. Depending on feedback, modify these molecules. Work with Kim at Michigan to incorporate some of these chromophores into polymers. Continue theoretical work with Ratner.
Q10-12. Depending on feedback from U. Michigan, modify previous chromphores for better MD response. Grow and ship first transparent oxide films to U. Michigan. Theoretical work with Ratner will move to predictive stages.
Q13. Continue molecular chromophore modification and introduction into Kim’s polymers. Use theoretical results and MD feedback to further modify chromophores. Depending on feedback from U. Michigan, modify transparent oxide films.
Q14-17. Focus on scale-up of best chromophores for further MD and other optical characterization experiments. Modify the syntheses and architectures as needed to maximize MD response. Further theoretical work to correlate structure-function relationships in chromophore series. Down-select optimum oxide materials.
Q18-20. Continue scale-up of best chromophores for detailed MD and other optical characterization experiments. Additional theoretical work to correlate structure-function relationships in chromophore series. Finalize optimum oxide materials.
