"The Nanoscale Metamorphosis of Silk Fibers—A Technological Transformation of Biomaterials."  
December 1, 2013   7:15pm - 8:00pm

The use of biologically derived materials is increasingly finding application and utility in the technological domains. Among natural materials, silk has proven particularly interesting for its properties—specifically, the ability to exist in more than one form (either metastable or stable). This material polymorphism offers the opportunity to explore multiple applications that hinge on the ability to control silk’s structure, morphing a natural fiber into multiple technologically relevant formats.
This talk will describe the transformation process of native silk fibers into engineered nanoscale materials and their applications. Such materials embody a confluence of form and function, and enable a series of approaches in the optical and electronic domains that operate at the interface of biology and technology.
