Adhesion and Strength of Soft Solids

My interest in the adhesion and strength of soft materials began with work on glass-polymer laminates where the mechanical properties of the polymer and its adhesion to glass play a critical role in determining overall laminate properties. We've looked at the problem of relating macroscopic adhesion to intrinsic interfacial dissipation and bulk deformation processes. We have also been interested in how elastic blunting of compliant solids can affect their material properties. A related interest is the study of mechanical effects in soft lithography.
