For a project funded by JWAFS, Professor Evelyn Wang is collaborating with chemistry professor Mircea Dinca to develop a low-cost device that extracts drinking water directly from the air.September 17, 2017 A new approach to ultrafast light pulses
Professor Nicholas Fang and colleagues have found a new way to make fluorescent materials emit ultrafast light pulses. This light could be used in communication systems and data transmission.September 10, 2017 Stick, peel, or bounce: Controlling a freezing droplet’s fate
A team led by Kripa Varanasi has found that they can control the adhesion of a droplet freezing on a surface such as an airplane wing or power line by altering that surface's thermal properties.
The first hands-on classes to teach students not only how to design an object but also how to build it.
As overpopulation and lack of rainfall fuel a crisis-level need in rural India for affordable drinking water, PhD candidate Natasha Wright and Assistant Professor Amos Winter work to design a low-cost desalination system, guided by insight from their extensive in-the-field research.
