MU’s femtosecond laser, one of three lasers in the laser lab, generates ultrashort pulses of light that can cut almost anything, including glass and diamond. According to Associate Research Professor Vitaly Gruzdev, the quality of the cut is “almost perfect.”
James C. Dowell Professor Robert Tzou, MU Engineering’s associate dean for academic programs, recently had a second edition published of his book Macro- to Microscale Heat Transfer: The Lagging Behavior.
“We see the addition of a femtosecond laser lab as a way to enable University of Missouri research teams to aggressively pursue success at a national level,” said Robert D. “Bob” Tzou, the James C. Dowell professor and chairman in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. Long on College of Engineering’s wish list, a generous […]
