Polymers, printing, and pathways
A novel approach to 3D printing using a support bath can greatly expand the types of polymers that can be printed, enable chemical reactions of the printed materials to gain novel material properties, and increase the mechanical strength and reduce the print time of mechanical parts through design optimization.
Transforming ideas into reality in Tech Spark
In the College of Engineering’s Tech Spark, Robert Smith, senior windows systems engineer, has developed a system that allows students, faculty, and staff to access machines and tools they have been trained on, and directs them to training courses they may need to use the systems in the future.
Collaborators' creation reveals how mechanical forces control genes
A LeDuc/Minden collaboration in mesofluidics--a medium-sized twist on microfluidics--was featured on the cover of the journal Lab on a Chip. The research team merged expertise in biomechanics, biology, and engineering to develop a new device.
