Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering and the College of Natural Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin have received a $15.6 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to discover and advance new types of materials for use in many applications including energy storage, medical devices and information processing.
Engineers and scientists at The University of Texas at Austin and the AMOLF institute in the Netherlands have invented the first mechanical metamaterials that easily transfer motion effortlessly in one direction while blocking it in the other, as described in the Feb. 13 issue of Nature.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a four-year, $2 million grant to Andrea Alù of the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin to break the conventional ways in which light and acoustic waves propagate.
Texas ECE professor Ananath Dodabalapur is a part of a team that recently was awarded a grant of $2 million over the next four years from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to research and develop thin, flexible semiconductors that might eventually lead to bendable computer screens and wearable electronics.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) selected 15 students from the Cockrell School of Engineering for its prestigious Graduate Research Fellowships Program including three students from the Department of Electircal and Computer Engineering: Ann Kathryn Rockwell, Connor Jeffrey McClellan and Nikhil Garg.
