Ober Group

Research in the Ober Group at Cornell University focuses on creating new polymeric materials and refining their properties with a fundamental understanding of their physical behaviour. We work to apply these novel materials in areas ranging from lithography, to biointerfaces, to flexible electronics. We are a multidisciplinary group consisting of students enrolled in the Departments of Materials Science & Engineering, Chemistry & Chemical Biology, and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Our tools include self-assembly and directed assembly, of which lithography is an important part.
