SURFI Group Fall 2013

SURFI Welcomes Jan Seitz

Surface Innovations Team welcomes a new member Dr. Jan Seitz. Dr. Seitz has strong expertise in formulation and testing of bioabsorbable implant materials and comes from the Leibniz Universität Hannover in Germany. He developed process chains for resorbable Mg-implant applications … Read More »

Stent Designers Think Zinc

Seeking an alternative to magnesium-based stents, researchers at Michigan Technological University (Houghton) are conducting studies on a stent design made from zinc. This material, the scientists say, offers better degradation rates than magnesium and can be processed in such a … Read More »

New Funding for Stent Commercialization

PI Michael Morley (IIE), Co-PI Jaroslaw Drelich (MSE) and Co-PI Jeremy Goldman (Bio Med) have received a $100,000 grant from the University of Michigan for a one-year project, “Commercialization of a Novel Bioabsorbable Stent.” From Tech Today. Read More »

Bioabsorbable Stents Bioabsorbable Stents
We search for new biodegradable alloys that could revolutionize cardiovascular stent industry.
Antibacterial Materials Antibacterial Materials
We invented new inexpensive antibacterial material and explore its potential applications in water filtration, food packaging, and many others.
RHX Ceramic Dating RHX Ceramic Dating
We study the rates of rehydration and rehydroxylation processes for fired clay-based ceramics as a tool for dating ceramic archeological artifacts.
Smart Surfaces Smart Surfaces
We architecture nanostructures, nanotubes, and molecular layers to control wetting or other properties of surfaces.
Mineral and Materials Processing Mineral and Materials Processing
We have a long tradition of development and testing physical separation technologies for selective recovery of minerals from ores, plastics from waste, and cellulose fibers from wastepaper.
