Research

Dr. Jur leads the Nano-EXtended Textiles (NEXT) research team, which aims to leverage nanotechnology materials and processing methods in to impart new characteristics to polymer films and fibers, with a specific focus on electronic and electro-optical modifications. Such an investigation requires a engineering design philosophy to be applied toward the ‘system-level’ development of the textiles and electronics to advance our technologies beyond the lab. Of particular interest to the NEXT team is the design of ‘smart’ textile platforms (wearable,internet of things) that enable improved materials integration of sensors, energy harvesting, energy storage, and communication devices.
