Real-time holographic videos based on photorefractive polymers From the paper "Holographic three-dimensional telepresence using large-area photorefractive polymer;" by P.-A. Blanche, A. Bablumian, R. Voorakaranam, C. Christenson, W. Lin, T. Gu, D. Flores, P. Wang, W.-Y. Hsieh, M. Kathaperumal, B. Rachwal, O. Siddiqui, J. Thomas, RA Norwood, M. Yamamoto, and N. Peyghambarian, published in Nature 468: 80--83, 04 November 2010: "Holography is a technique that is used to display objects or scenes in three dimensions. Such three-dimensional (3D) images, or holograms, can be seen with the unassisted eye and are very similar to how humans see the actual environment surrounding them. The concept of 3D telepresence, a real-time dynamic hologram depicting a scene occurring in a different location, has attracted considerable public interest since it was depicted in the original Star Wars film in 1977. However, the lack of sufficient computational power to produce realistic computer-generated holograms and the absence of large-area and dynamically updatable holographic recording media have prevented realization of the concept. Here we use a holographic stereographic technique3 and a photorefractive polymer material as the recording medium4 to demonstrate a holographic display that can refresh images every two seconds. A 50 Hz nanosecond pulsed laser is used to write the holographic pixels5. Multicoloured holographic 3D images are produced by using angular multiplexing, and the full parallax display employs spatial multiplexing. 3D ...

Polymers are made from Monomers This clip is useful for GCSE chemistry, showing polymers are made from small units called monomers. I use shopping trolleys to represent monomers, then when they are pushed together in a chain, they are like polymers. It's a bit silly but a bit of fun!
Prospects of Polymer Electronics Prospects of Polymer ElectronicsPolymers have always been associated with revolutionary innovations in science and industry. Polymers have efficiently replaced conventional insulators for a long time. Micro electronics and radio engineering successfully employ polymers as construction materials due to their diversity and possibility of production from materials with various physical and chemical properties. Today manufacturers actively search for conductive promoted polymers. They develop compounds with non-linear characteristics under field effects. If successful, such researches may change the technology of producing key electronic components. New polymers enable to produce from plastic numerous and divers electronic components such as transistors, sensors, solar cell components, light-emitting diodes, ports, high-temperature wires and cables, panels and etc. Light-emitting diodes were first electronic devices made of polymers. Structurally, LED design should ensure the most transparent electrode, hole transport layer, electroluminescent layer and wave guide; while the electron transport layer and negative electrode should provide for the maximum interference reflection and mirror reflection of radiation. We can now see that available researches and developments allow to produce the organic light-emitting diodes on a commercial basis.Scientists work on special types of conductive plastic. Conductive and light-emitting plastics will change the nature of electricity. For ...

Polymer Innovations Dams Photo Slideshow More Info @ bit.ly Polymer Innovations produces the world's best polymer based dam or pond sealant that is 100% customisable to your specific environment. Whether the leak is in the base, wall, through rock or any soil type Polymer Innovations has the specific Water$ave PL dam sealant to put an end to your water losses. The best time to treat your leaking dam with Water$ave PL Plug is when there is water in the dam, especially after recent rain. While there is water about & your dam is filling, stop those dam leaks before it costs you a lot more money. Putting your crops, stock & livelihood at risk. There are other ways of sealing your dam using such products as bentonite clay, lime or with a lining. Most of these solutions have to be implemented when the dam is built. Even then due to time or money restrictions these dams are not built as well as they should be where such things as soil conditions & seasonal changes are not considered. Water$ave PL is a blend of lineal & cross linked polymers that are 99% insoluble, non toxic & biodegradable. It will not harm plants, fish, yabbies or livestock.
Superabsorbant Polymers Superabsorbant polymers are a special class of polymers called polyelectrolytes that have a charge on the polymer chain that increases the solubility in water. They are generally used in the form of small particles that are crosslinked so they will form gel rather than completely dissolving. The polymer gel absorbs water and the charges along the chain repel each other, stretching out the chain and enhancing the swelling of the gel. Superabsorbant polymers can readily absorb 100 times their volume in water! Super absorbent polymers are used in products like disposable diapers, for cleaning up water based environmental spills, and for preventing rain water runoff in agricultural areas.
Polymer Chains Polymers are long chain molecules. Our "polymer-in-a-can" demonstration shows relative size of a polymer chain scaled up to macroscopic dimensions. If an equivalent molecular weight is calculated for the "chain" shown in the movie (assuming a polyethylene molecule), the value is about 80000 g/mole. This is a relatively low molecular weight polymer and many applications for polyethylene would require a significantly higher molecular weight to attain good mechanical properties.

Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering, Bio-Active Crystalline Cationic Polymers Chemtrails are actually called geoengineering. Aluminum Oxide and Sulfur Dioxide are added to jet fuel or sprayed by commercial wide- body aircraft at ~$0.3/pound (in dollars adjusted for 1997 inflation), leaving those giant white trails in the sky. After enough are sprayed, the sky turns to overcast. They are patented by US Patent 5003186 and are mentioned by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Council on Foreign Relations, UK Parliamentary OST, and other think tanks, agencies, and in academia. These scientists are trying to imitate the volcanic ash emissions caused by Mt. Pinatubo that erupted in 1991 in the Philippines. Studies by NASA have shown that the ash coverage cooled the earth, so this is their solution global warming, now referred to as climate change. I say we let nature run its course, and switch to cleaner fuels. The spraying needs to stop. Sulfur Dioxide causes acid rain, Aluminum oxide causes reproductive harm and skin irritation. CO2 increasing is actually a plus, because more plant life will grow, and eventually the plant life will balance out the excess CO2. These scientists clearly don't care about the long term consequences, and the "greater good" they push in the "Geoengineering Option" by the CFR is total non-sense. SUVs and factories causing climate change is baloney, especially if the scientific community's false solution is to dump pollutants in the atmosphere using aircraft. These scientists are scam artists, trying to push a carbon tax ...
