报告题目：Metallo-Polyelectrolytes: from Chemistry to Self-Assembly to Materials主 讲 人：Chuanbing Tang 教授University of South Carolina, USA报告时间：2019年5月22日10:00报告地点：25号楼346会议室欢迎广大师生参加！材料科学与工程学院2019年5月16日报告摘要：Polyelectrolytes are a class of macromolecules containing charged groups. The fields of macromolecular sciences have enjoyed a unique combination of metals and soft organic frameworks in the name of metallopolymers, metal-containing polymers or organometallic polymers. When metallopolymers carry charged groups, they form a class of polyelectrolytes or metallo-polyelectrolytes. This is an emerging area that is particularly well suited for manufacturing functional materials. This presentation will focus on a few unique properties and functions of metallo-polyelectrolytes that conventional organo-polyelectrolytes, do not possess. Particularly I will talk about cationic metallocene-containing polyelectrolytes on the following perspectives: electronic, bonding, and redox properties; directed self-assembly; functional materials via electrostatic interactions; ion-exchange for transport. A perspective on the critical challenges will be discussed, especially on experimental quantitative analysis and theoretical modelling of ionic binding.报告人简介：Dr. Chuanbing Tang received B.S. from Nanjing University, and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University with Profs.

CV of Prof. Paras N. Prasad
Optical coherence tomography is one of the fastest growing areas of biomedical optics with many potential clinical applications. The recent development of Fourier domain OCT has significantly increased the imaging speed and sensitivity, and has enabled real-time 3-D imaging. The innovations in light source, detector, miniature probe, and image processing have greatly extended the clinical applications of OCT technology. Many of the functional extensions of OCT technology that were developed in the last decade, such as Doppler OCT, Polarization sensitivity OCT, and Phase resolved OCT, started to generate clinically important information in clinical studies. I will report several on-going research projects in my laboratory that focus on translating OCT technology to solve specific clinical problems. The new innovations, such as optical coherence elastography and multimodality intravascular imaging will be described. The challenges and opportunities in translational research will be discussed.
This lecture aims to provide a thought provoking account of recent breakthroughs in nanoscale manipulation of photons that create emerging opportunities for both fundamental research and revolutionary technologies with global societal impact.

Nanophotonics is a 21st-century emerging field created by the fusion of photonics with nanotechnology. New phenomena are made possible by confining optical interactions and their dynamics to the nanoscale which promotes new physical effects even in non-traditional photonic materials, such as metals. Historically, photonics has manipulated the oscillating electric field of propagating light, without paying much attention to the accompanying magnetic field. Metaphotonics is a rapidly emerging new direction in nanophotonics that deals with manipulation of both electric and magnetic fields with a particular focus on their coupling in nanoengineered materials to control the photon field distribution and propagation. These emerging dimensions of photonics will be discussed. Their applications range from telecommunications, to solar energy harvesting, to sensor technology, to biomedical technology and health care, in addition to more futuristic directions, such as cloaking, photonic black holes and focusing beyond diffraction limit.
