2017 Fall Graduation

Congratulations to Zhiyong! Zhiyong just completed his MS program on Zn-Ti biodegradable alloys. He left our team for his first job in California. Drive safely and good luck in your new place Zhiyong! Read More »

Zn-Mg Microalloys

It is still an open challenge to find a biodegradable metallic material exhibiting sufficient mechanical properties and degradation behavior to serve as an arterial stent. In our new study, and summarized in publication entitled “Novel high-strength, low-alloys Zn-Mg (<0.1 wt% … Read More »

Measuring Adhesion of Water to Polymers

In our new article entitled Direct measurements of adhesion forces for water droplets on smooth and patterned polymers published in the Surface Innovations journal, a microelectronic balance system was employed to measure the force of spreading during water droplet attachment … 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.
