Stanford Polymer Collective

Hongping Yan co-chaired and gave a hands-on tour to attendees of this scattering school on the in-situ x-ray morphology characterization.

Zhenan Bao and Michael Toney

Franklin Lee is a 3rd-year graduate students who was supported by this award. He participated in outreach events as part of the leadership team of the Stanford Polymer Collective (SPC), a group of Stanford graduate students who engage in polymer research. To raise interest in polymer science and engineering in the future generation, SPC teaches students about polymers through fun hands-on activities that highlight some of their most important properties, in either a classroom setting or an exhibition.

This award partially supported an associate staff scientist in Toney group and during one of the outreach events, SSRL 8th Annual School on Synchrotron X-ray Scattering Techniques in Materials and Environmental Sciences, he gave hands-on tours on the x-ray scattering techniques that were used in this study, which is expected to motivate more scientific research in this field.
