Polymer physics informs the design, synthesis, and processing of nanometer-scale polymeric materials for applications ranging across energy generation and storage, directed self-assembly, biologically-functional materials, and nanocomposites. Additionally, fundamental and applied polymer science enables detailed insights into chain motion in polymeric systems. The convergence of fundamental physics and applications is embodied in many polymer systems, including the block copolymers investigated by Thomas H. Epps, III and colleagues, as introduced on page 461. The versatile nanometer-scale structures formed by these copolymer materials in bulk, thin film, or solution environments permit the development of designer materials possessing unique properties for emerging technologies.
