Dr. Paris R. vonLockette

Dr. von Lockette's work is rooted in the structure property relationships of elastom;ers and elastomer composites. He has received funding from the National Science Foundation for the study of piezoelectric-rubber composites for vibration isolation and control; for the acquisition of an atomic force microscope to study the mechanical response of rubbery composites and materials at the nanoscale; for x-ray tomography and diffraction systems to study the micromechanics of magneto-active composites; to examine multi-field active materials for Origami Engineering; and, most recently, to develop cutting-edge 3D printing technologies.

Our group (the MACS LAb) along with Dr. Zoubeida Ouanies (PSU) was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop a 3D printer capable of producing components with multi-material properties from a single constituent set.
