    • Crystallization Studies of Highly Monodisperse Oligomeric Poly(Ethylene Oxide) 

      Yin, Junjie (University of Waterloo, 2018-12-13)
      Poly(ethylene oxide) is one of the most intensively studied polymers in terms of crystallization, because of its linear structure. In this thesis the chapters are organized in a self-contained fashion, with a general ...
    • Dielectric Measurement and Analysis of Ultrastable PMMA Glass 

      Cai, Zhaohui (University of Waterloo, 2022-02-09)
      A stable glass, distinguished from an ordinary glass, has phenomenal characteristics such as a high density and a high kinetic stability. In this project, stable glasses of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) are produced ...
    • Locality and Exceptional Points in Pseudo-Hermitian Physics 

      Barnett, Jacob (University of Waterloo, 2023-05-26)
      Pseudo-Hermitian operators generalize the concept of Hermiticity. Included in this class of operators are the quasi-Hermitian operators, which define a generalization of quantum theory with real-valued measurement outcomes ...
    • Production of Highly Monodisperse Polystyrene by Evaporative Purification 

      Zhu, Shipei (University of Waterloo, 2017-12-14)
      In this thesis, I will demonstrate a simple evaporative purification method to separate a polydisperse polystyrene with small molecular weight into highly monodisperse components (N-mers) ranging from 3-mers to 13-mers. ...
    • Solvent-Induced Nanoscopic Surface Morphology on Polymer Thin Films 

      Trumpour, Tiana (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-29)
      Polymer thin films are studied extensively due to their important applications in the fields of material coatings, biomedical devices, nanoelectronics, and more. Many of these applications directly depend on the surface ...
    • Stable polymer glasses 

      Yin, Junjie (University of Waterloo, 2023-04-26)
      This thesis presents investigations on stable polymer glasses prepared through physical vapour deposition from different perspectives. This is the first time that polymers have been used in simple vapour deposition and ...
    • Surface Dynamics, Glass Transition, and Crystallization of Atactic Polystyrene 

      Chai, Yu (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-29)
      How polymers behave near the glass transition is one of the deepest questions in condensed matter physics. In the past two decades, the surface dynamics, glass transition, and crystallization of polymer thin films have ...
