Research and Practice Interests

Adhesive Bonding of Metals and Polymers

Surface Analysis of Polymers

Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy of Polymers

Plasma Polymerization



My research interests include adhesion, thin films, plasma polymerization, surface characterization, and polymer processing.  A great deal of our current research is concerned with novel plasma polymerized primers for rubber-to-metal bonding and plasma polymerized silica-like films as primers for structural adhesive bonding and for corrosion inhibition of metals such as steel and aluminum.  Our research on plasma polymerization also involves plasma polymerized films as barrier coatings and wear resistant coatings on polymers.  Much of our research work involves surface characterization using techniques such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), variable angle spectroscopic ellipsometry (VASE), and Fourier-transform Raman spectroscopy. There are several unique aspects to this work.  One is the development of novel plasma polymerized acetylene films as primers for ruuber-to-metal bonding.  Another involves the interfacing of plasma reactors with our XPS and FTIR systems for in-situ characterization of plasma polymerized films.  We are also using a unique, large-volume plasma reactor for batch and semi-continuous plasma polymerization of thin films onto polymer films and fibers.  Our work on polymer processing is concerned with injection molding of polyvinylchloride for improved adhesion to glass.
