An illustration developed by Prof. Jonah Erlebacher and his research group is featured on the cover of the July 2014 issue of JOM, an official publication of the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society.
A sideways transistor geometry correlated static charge quantitatively to changes in threshold voltage (VT) without disturbing transistor materials or interfaces, and also showed striking differences among different polymer gate materials. This will indicate more effective gate insulator choices for printed transistors with stabilized, defined VT, and inspire new material structures for other applications.
Donglei “Emma” Fan, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, led researchers in developing the smallest, fastest, and longest-running nanomotor to date.
Professor Todd Hufnagel designed and led a collaborative effort between JHU and the Army Research Laboratory to study the high-strain rate of magnesium as part of a way to develop new military-grade materials.
