The Robinson group’s research has been recognized by being awarded journal covers for three publications in 2018. The works are in the area of nanoparticles and x-ray emission spectroscopy characterization methods for nanomaterials, and make use of the Cornell synchrotron (CHESS) for advanced characterization of materials.
A research group led by Andrej Singer, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, has won a grant from the Department of Energy for research aimed at creating new quantum states of matter.
"Christopher “Kit” Umbach, senior lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, College of Engineering, is described in his nomination letter as “an exemplary adviser and mentor of students at all levels.”"
Mesoporous Inorganic Particles: Generalized Access to Mesoporous Inorganic Particles and Hollow Spheres from Multicomponent Polymer Blends
Featured on the cover of Advanced Materials, the Wiesner group in collaboration with their former postdoc Jinwoo Lee, "transfer insights from the physics of polymer blends to materials synthesis"
A cross-campus collaboration led by materials science professor Uli Wiesner results in visual confirmation of 12-sided, nanoscale cage structures, which could have medical diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
Uli Wiesner and collaborators have developed a block copolymer self-assembled 3D energy storage architecture that could help change the way batteries are constructed.
The new master of engineering program in materials science and engineering gives students a year of classroom instruction along with a co-op work experience that prepares them for the job market.
Researchers in the labs of Richard Robinson (MSE)and Tobias Hanrath (CBE) have developed a new nanosynthetic pathway to achieve ultra-pure and highly stable groups of same-sized nanoparticles – known as “magic-sized clusters.” Their paper, “Mesophase Formation Stabilizes High-Purity Magic-Sized Clusters,” appears on a cover of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
