Team uses machine learning to predict the properties of simulated carbon nanotube arrays

Image of nanotube forest micropillars. The research team is now growing carbon nanotubes in the Advanced Nanostructures Lab. Image captured by Ramakrishna Surya a PhD student in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Carbon nanotubes have the potential to provide lightweight, flexible materials that could revolutionize the world. In their perfect form, these molecules — which are [...]
Avoiding food contamination with a durable coating for hard surfaces

Avoiding food contamination with a durable coating for hard surfaces

In the future, a durable coating could help keep food-contact surfaces clean in the food processing industry, including in meat processing plants. A new study from a team of University of Missouri engineers and food scientists demonstrates that the coating — made from titanium dioxide — is capable of eliminating foodborne germs, such as salmonella […]

Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

Mizzou Team to Use AI to Grow Carbon Nanotubes in Mass Quantities

A team of Mizzou Engineers is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help grow and control large quantities of carbon nanotubes—tiny, cylinder-shaped molecules made of rolled sheets of carbon. Using AI is a novel approach to mass producing them, a problem that has plagued scientists for decades. Now, the National Science Foundation is backing the [...]
