This RET project is a collaboration between Wi(PR)2EM, the Center for a Sustainable Water, Energy, and Food Nexus, the Science on Wheels Educational Center, and the UW MRSEC.
The Fifth Crystallization Competition was held on June 8, 2019 at the UPRM. Sixty five high school students presented 24 posters with their results.
Imaging high resolution live tissues has long been a goal to better understand the development of tissue specific disease and tissue biology. Current imaging techniques allow for live imaging, but not at high resolution or high resolution imaging, but not of living cells.
Woven throughout PEAQS are highly collaborative materials science research and education projects requiring a strong center community and confident, empowered undergraduate researchers.
Vision for excellence at Navajo Technical University in Research and Education in STEM
Navajo Technical University (NTU) and the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at Harvard have embarked on a partnership to engage NTU students in materials science research that can be used to address health and environment issues relevant to the Navajo Nation.
The finite difference-time domain (FDTD) models for clusters of known substrate nano-particle distributions were developed. Additional models utilizing open source finite element analysis (FEA) software (ELMER) and commercial FEA software (COMSOL) were also developed. These models will be
Charge transfer materials are important components of organic electronics for applications in OLED, solar batteries and transistors. Structure-properties relations for this series of materials, including shapes of their crystals, were studied experimentally and computationally in connectio
Research at Texas State University (MSI) and MSREC partner NC State demonstrated that iron oxide (g-Fe2O3) could be synthesized as a nanosheet architecture which resulted in significantly higher Li-ion capacities than nanoparticles; this work can provide enhanced cathodes for lower cost Li
In previous work Texas State University team members discovered a self-assembling nanocomposite formed between polyvinylpyrrolidone and montmorillonite clay that exhibits high gas barrier properties. This self assembling phenomena has been extended to other polymers including polyvinyl al
Perovskite solar cells (PSCs), have shown a remarkable increase in photoconversion efficiency (PCE), from 3.8% in 2009, to 22.1% in 2016. The good electron transporting and solution processable properties of fullerene derivatives make them the most popular electron transporting materials
Piezoelectric materials have long been investigated due to their unique characteristic of converting mechanical stress into electrical charges or vice versa. However they are fragile, difficult to fabricate, and requires post processing. One way to alleviate the drawback is to use 3D prin
