Multiblock copolymers exhibiting spatio-temporal structure with autonomous viscosity oscillation.


:Here we report an ABA triblock copolymer that can express microscopic autonomous formation and break-up of aggregates under constant condition to generate macroscopic viscoelastic self-oscillation of the solution. The ABA triblock copolymer is designed to have hydrophilic B segment and self-oscillating A segment at the both sides by RAFT copolymerization. In the A segment, a metal catalyst of chemical oscillatory reaction, i.e., the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction, is introduced as a chemomechanical transducer to change the aggregation state of the polymer depending on the redox states. Time-resolved DLS measurements of the ABA triblock copolymer confirm the presence of a transitional network structure of micelle aggregations in the reduced state and a unimer structure in the oxidized state. This autonomous oscillation of a well-designed triblock copolymer enables dynamic biomimetic softmaterials with spatio-temporal structure.

  • A broadband reflective-type half-wave plate employing optical feedbacks.

    abstract::We propose and demonstrate a type of a broadband half-wave plate that operates in the reflective mode. It consists of a metal grating embedded in a dielectric slab and placed on top of a grounded metal surface. We theoretically show that owing to the optical feedback effect which originates from the wave reflections a...
