PEAQS has successfully leveraged the new laboratory space allocated to the project during years 1 and 2 to begin a successful program in single crystal growth of quantum materials.
The MRS-PREM Research Scholars Summit paired more than 30 graduate students and postdocs mentors from MRSECs and STCs with 60 students from PREM Minority Serving Institutions through the MRS Fall meeting.
The Lung-on-a-Chip team at Fort Lewis College has developed a functional, synthetic membrane that mimics the structural and mechanical properties of the barrier between alveolar cells and capillary cells where gas exchange occurs in the lungs.
PEAQS has successfully leveraged its community and resources built in year 1 to develop and characterize new materials for quantum devices and electronics.
Utilizing best practices in education and broadening participation, PEAQS providing our students with strong peer and professional networks, highly immersive research and education projects, sustained mentorship, and career-focused training.
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
