After more than 100 years of research, inkjet-printing technology reached consumer markets in the form of desktop printers in the late 1980s. In recent years, innovative applications for the technology — also known as microfluidic systems — have burgeoned including 3D prototype printing processes for business and industry, bio-applications such as printable human tissues, solar […]
Feeling deflated after he was declined a summer internship for which he thought he would be a shoe-in, junior electrical engineering major Jeff Piersol was set to lower his expectations. But his research mentor, assistant professor Jae Kwon, suggested that he apply to the national labs. “I am interested in doing something this summer that […]
Even while on winter break, electrical and computer engineering sophomore Andrew Haddock’s mind was on how to productively spend his summer vacation, searching online for possibilities. “When I came across the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Web site, the program looked incredible,” said Haddock. “I thought it was exactly what I should be […]
Story by: Jashin Lin Very small batteries for very small devices are the subject of Mizzou Engineering professor Jae Kwon’s recent paper submitted to the 15th International Conference on Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems (also known this year by its snappier name, Transducers 2009). The paper was awarded the honor of being selected as “outstanding […]
