A new technology called spectral [color] computed tomography (spectral CT) is not only on the horizon, but it is also on the University of Notre Dame’s campus, where researchers are giving the phrase “in living color” a new meaning.
Notre Dame's Center for Nano Science and Technology
NDnano is a world-class, collaborative research center that includes faculty from seven departments across the colleges of Engineering and Science. The Center is focused on developing, characterizing, and applying new nanotechnology-based materials, processes, devices, and solutions that will better society.
NDnano’s mission is to promote, enable, and advance multidisciplinary nanotechnology education and research to include:
- defining, manipulating, and controlling the properties of new nano-materials
- collaborating with peer universities, industry, and government to accelerate advances in the field of nano science
- developing solutions and applications that help address society's global issues while representing a force for good in the discussion on the ethics and possible societal impacts of the new science
Joel Boerckel, assistant professor of the department of aerospace and mechanical engineering, was awarded a Collaboration in Translational Research grant for a study entitled “Mechanical Regulation of Neovascularization.”
Wolfgang Porod has been invited to participate in the Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery and Exploration (INDEX) at the University of New York at Albany.
Prof. Lee will discuss prospects for hybridizing concentrator photovoltaics (CPV) with concentrating solar power (CSP) to produce electricity efficiently while simultaneously generating dispatchable heat energy stored in thermal fluids at ~400°C, as well as his group’s efforts to realize low-cost, high-efficiency IIIV on Si tandem cells as another means to increase PV adoption.
In this workshop we will explore why and how to get started on a research project or creative endeavor at Notre Dame. We will discuss strategies for discovering your scholarly interests and passions, finding a faculty mentor, formulating a research question, and finding funding sources.All are welcome. There is no need to register in advance.…
