With the support of a six-year grant from the National Science Foundation, Nebraska’s Materials Research Science and Engineering Center will collaborate with Tuskegee University to offer the latter’s undergraduate and graduate students more opportunities for conducting upper-echelon research. The equipment housed at NCMN will help facilitate this partnership. (11/1/18)
Jian Wang recently received a three-year, $799,270 grant from the Department of Energy to develop testing and modeling procedures that can better predict the ductility of certain alloys that can be used in next-generation nuclear power facilities. (10/24/18)
Michael Sealy is using UNL’s new 3-D printers to develop medical implants (e.g., screws, pins, plates) that are dissolvable, which could eliminate the potential long terms effects of these implants on the body or the need for additional surgery for removal. (10/5/18)
Stephen Morin and his team have developed a new technique for depositing circuitry, allowing them to paint circuits onto curved, textured, and stretchable surfaces. The technique is fairly simple, which should make it less expensive than existing methods. (9/24/18)
Jian Wang was selected to receive the Materials Today 2018 Rising Star Award in the Materials Genome division. The awards will be presented September 27 and 28 at Rice University in Houston, TX. (9/10/2018)
UNL continues to make waves in the area of nanoscience. With your support, the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience will be positioned to continue its reputation for research and education. Please consider giving to the NCMN Research and Education Fund.
