Webinar Description:

Please join us for our Advanced Technical Series highlighting the Adhesion Society. Al Crosby, President of the Adhesion Society will first give a brief overview of the Adhesion Society then Michelle Seitz, Adhesion Society Program Chair, will provide a preview of the upcoming Adhesion Society Virtual Meeting being held in February of 2021, including what you can experience at the virtual meeting and why you should attend.

Switchable Adhesives for Multifunctional Interfaces
The "Early in Career Award" winner, Michael Bartlett will then present Switchable Adhesives for Multifunctional Interfaces:
Emerging and current applications ranging from consumer and medical products to soft robotics and wearable bio-monitoring devices demand strong adhesives which can be easily removed on-demand and subsequently reused. This requires new paradigms in adhesive science and engineering, resulting in the emergence of new classes of multifunctional switchable adhesives. Michael will first introduce some of the key concepts and opportunities in this area then he will present a framework for designing and rapidly manufacturing materials through kirigami, the Japanese art of paper cutting. Michael will introduce kirigami-inspired structures for adhesives and show how we can enhance adhesive force by a factor of ∼100 across a spatially patterned sheet while tuning adhesion in different directions for high capacity yet easy release interfaces. These materials and approaches provide model systems to study fundamental adhesive properties while enabling advanced adhesive technologies for both current and emerging opportunities.
