Group member Eric Anderson got the Donald Beall Award for Engineering Accomplishmentcopy page

Group member Eric Anderson ([email protected]) got the Donald Beall Award for Engineering Accomplishment. Eric investigated the effects of lattice density on stochastic fracture of 3D printed composites. He also manufactured composites via vibration-assisted fused deposition modeling (VA-FDM), which we developed to reduce inherent porosity in extrusion 3D-printed materials. Eric also processed biomimetic porous polymers with […]

New poster at GRC Ceramics Conference 2018

Synthesis and characterization of graphene quantum dot containing ceria-zirconiaÖzgür Keleş, Andrew C. Dina, Daniel Fok Abstract: Zirconia-based nanoparticles are used in various applications, such as catalyst, filter, oxygen storage, and sensor. Among many synthesis methods to produce zirconia-based nanoparticles, aqueous sodium borohydride (NaBH4) coprecipitation produces zirconia containing nano-pores. In this work, we extended the NaBH4 coprecipitation […]
