Institute Collaborators win prestigious Al Sonntag Award from STLE The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers has awarded Dr. Min Zou, µEP graduate student Samuel Beckford, and Dr. Andrew Wang, from Ocean Nanotech, LLC with the prestigious Al Sonntag Award. The award is being presented for their paper titled “Wear-Resistant PTFE/SiO2 Nanoparticle Composite Films”.
Researchers Link DNA to Nanostructures (9/19/2011) Assembly of nanostructures using DNA may lead to the production of new materials with a wide range of applications from electronics to tissue engineering. Researchers in the Institute for Nanoscience and Engineering at the University of Arkansas have produced building blocks for such material by controlling the number, placement and orientation of DNA linkers on the surface of colloidal nanoparticles.
University of Arkansas Receives Check from NanoMech (9/16/2011) During the dedication of its new Nanoscale Material Science and Engineering Building, the University of Arkansas received a check for $375,000 from NanoMech, an innovative small business that uses nanotechnology to manufacture products with broad applications. The check is not a gift, but rather payment for intellectual property owned by the university and successfully commercialized by NanoMech.
Physics Professor Speaks at Royal Society (9/6/2011) Jak Chakhalian, professor of physics and the holder of the Charles and Clydene Scharlau Professorship, has received an invitation to present two lectures in the United Kingdom at the Royal Society as part of the 100th anniversary of the discovery of superconductivity.
Superconductivity-Related Materials Retain Shape but Change Properties Under Strain (9/1/2011) A University of Arkansas physicist and his colleagues have found that ultra-thin films of superconductors and related materials don’t lose their fundamental properties when built under strain when built as atomically thin layers, an important step towards achieving artificially designed room temperature superconductivity. This ability will allow researchers to create new types of materials and properties and enable exotic electronic phases in ultra-thin films.
Interim co-directors appointed for the Arkansas High Performance Computing Center (8/25/2011) Jackson Cothren and Douglas Spearot have been appointed as interim co-directors of the Arkansas High Performance Computing Center. Both Cothren and Spearot have been active researchers using the cyberinfrastructure (supercomputing) resources available in the center. They will share the director role previously held by Amy Apon. Apon left the university this month for an administrative position at Clemson University. The interim appointments will be for one year while a search is conducted for a new center director.
