Conference Description
One of the longest running Gordon Conferences, the Polymer Physics program addresses current issues in macromolecular science and engineering covering a wide range of topics with a balanced approach that integrates theory and experiment. Recent examples of conference subjects include: the thermodynamics of polymers in solution and in the bulk state; block copolymer statistical mechanics and dynamics including self assembly into dispersions and ordering in the undiluted state; the physics of polymeric glasses and the consequences of confinement on the glass transition temperature; polymer crystallization; the rheology and processing of polymer blends, solutions and block copolymers; fabrication of nanoscale polymer structures for use in electronic and optical media; polyelectrolytes and biologically active macromolecules; viscoelasticity; composites and foams; optically and electrically active polymers; surfaces, thin films, adhesion and lubrication.

The Polymer Physics Gordon Conference draws attendees from a variety of academic, industrial, and government facilities with representation from physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, material science and engineering, and other technical fields.

A Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) is held in conjunction with this Conference. Click here for more information about the associated GRS.
