Mizzou Engineers create novel approach to control energy waves in fourth dimension
In recent years scientists like Guoliang Huang, the Huber and Helen Croft Chair in Engineering, have explored a “fourth dimension” (4D), or synthetic dimension, as an extension of our current physical reality.
Smart material prototype challenges Newton’s laws of motion
For more than 10 years, Guoliang Huang, the Huber and Helen Croft Chair in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, has been investigating the unconventional properties of “metamaterials” — an artificial material that exhibits properties not commonly found in nature as defined by Newton’s laws of motion — in his long-term pursuit of designing an ideal metamaterial. Huang’s goal is to help control the “elastic” energy waves traveling through larger structures — such as an aircraft — without light and small “metastructures.”
Huang named SPIE Fellow
Mizzou Engineering’s Guoliang Huang has been named a Fellow of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.
Creating an artificial material that can sense, adapt to its environment
Researchers have developed a metamaterial that can respond to its environment, independently make a decision, and perform an action not directed by a human being.
Mizzou Engineering team discovers method to control sound waves in the fourth dimension
Using a type of material that conducts electricity on the edges while insulating the inside, a Mizzou Engineering team has discovered a way to control sound waves beyond…
Four faculty receive named professorships
Last spring, faculty representatives from the College of Engineering developed a Faculty Honors Program to adhere to the campus guidelines for awarding faculty fellowships and honors. To select this year’s honorees, Dean Elizabeth Loboa sought recommendations from the College’s Dean’s Council for Teaching Excellence and Dean’s Council for Research Excellence.
