A new view of microscopic processes
With the support of a two-year, $800,000 grant from the National Science Foundation and an additional $300,000 from the university, Matt Maschmann and a team of researchers are purchasing new equipment which will allow researchers to conduct scientific experiments while simultaneously viewing reactions as they happen in real time.
Team develops technique to segment carbon nanotube forests in images
Mizzou Engineering researchers are another step closer to controlling the properties of carbon nanotubes growing in mass quantities.
Probing the matter/life nexis: Zia brings colloidal physics research to Mizzou
Equipped with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s Matter-to-Life Program, Roseanna N. Zia is using a special class of physics to explore what it means to be alive.
Wear and forget: an ultrasoft material for on-skin health devices
Zheng Yan and a team of researchers at the University of Missouri may have a solution. They have created an ultrasoft “skin-like” material — that’s both breathable and stretchable — for use in the development of an on-skin, wearable bioelectronic device.
Mizzou researchers provide direct evidence of localized explosion of aluminum nanoparticle
A Mizzou Engineering team has provided direct evidence of a localized explosion of an aluminum nanoparticle, a mechanism first theorized in 2006.
Mizzou Engineering researchers design new heart health wearable device
A team of Mizzou Engineering researchers are using a $2.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help create a breathable material — with antibacterial and antiviral properties — to support the team’s ongoing development of a multifunctional, wearable heart monitor.
Team develops technique to fabricate electronics onto everyday objects
A Mizzou Engineering team has developed a new technique to fabricate electronics onto everyday objects.
Researcher studying supercritical carbon dioxide for efficient applications
Chanwoo Park recently received funding from the U.S. Army to apply supercritical CO2 for cooling systems for unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) that take advantage of CO2 in an abnormal state somewhere between a vapor and a liquid.
Osaze earns 3MT People’s Choice Award for turning tricky plastic into insulation
A PhD student has discovered a way to turn unrecyclable plastic into building insulation that is 150% more effective than its untampered state on the market. For his research, Osasu Osaze earned the People’s Choice Award at this year’s 3MT competition sponsored by the University of Missouri Graduate School.
Team investigates methods to make VPP-based 3D printing more sustainable
From custom car parts to medical equipment, vat-photopolymerization (VPP) based 3D printing is expected to usher in a new age of manufacturing. Before it becomes interwoven in our daily lives, however, a Mizzou Engineering team is investigating how to make the process more sustainable.
