Charge Anisotropy of Scheelite

We employed atomic force microscopy to measure the colloidal interactions between silicon nitride cantilever tips and scheelite crystal surfaces in 1mM KCl solutions of varying pH. By fitting the DLVO theoretical model to the recorded force-distance curves, the surface charge … Read More »

Making News

We made news in Tech Today and in the local newspaper on: How does our zinc stent invention turn into commercially available—and potentially lifesaving—product? Read more at Tech Today, by Jenn Donovan. Since reading the Daily Mining Gazette requires a … Read More »

M-TRAC Grant

Our team received a grant from the M-TRAC (Michigan Translational and Commercialization) program on Prototyping Biodegradable Zn-Based Stents of Enhanced Mechanical Properties. The goal of this project is to manufacture Zn-based stents with improved mechanical properties as compared to what … 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.
