Polymer Aerogels

We also synthesize polymer based aerogels in addition to our work on silica or silica-hybrid aerogels. These aerogels typically have better mechanical properties compared to silica based materials, but often at the cost of higher thermal conductivities and the need for supercritical drying. Work in our group is ongoing to address both shortcomings.
