The current issue of the MRS Bulletin features articles on dealloyed nanoporous materials. Dealloyed materials are research interests of both department chair and professor Jonah Erlebacher, and professor Mingwei Chen, who have articles in the issue. Professor Erlebacher’s paper, titled Pattern formation during electrochemical and liquid metal dealloying, discusses the differences between electrochemical dealloying and liquid metal […]
Elliot Wainwright, a PhD candidate with Professor Weihs, recently won a Best Student Presentation award at the Fall MRS Meeting. He presented two talks during the Advances and Upcoming Research Strategies in Reactive Materials symposium at the conference that was held in Boston late last year. There were 3 awards given out for the over […]
PhD candidate Jessica Ma was recently awarded an APL Graduate Fellowship. Her proposed project is about the characterization of extremely low-level optical absorption and scattering in crystalline and amorphous materials for high-energy laser (HEL) applications. Jessica states in her project proposal: When people read this project title, they would think that low-level optical absorption and […]
In collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore City Public Schools has adopted a program to strengthen science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) instruction in the district’s elementary schools. The partnership marks a significant milestone for SABES—STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools—which was designed to prepare students for recently introduced Next Generation Science Standards and bolster teachers’ command […]
“When I came to Hopkins as a young faculty member about 15 years ago, the engineering school was limiting the number of provisional applications that could be filed each year; only very few disclosures moved to the filing stage,” recalls Materials Science and Engineering Professor Hai-Quan Mao. “Back then, success was primarily measured in how many […]
Robert Green helped found Department of Materials Science and Engineering, was part of engineering community at JHU for more than 50 years.
What exactly does the phrase “stewing in its own juices” mean in relation to document preservation? That’s exactly what associate research professor Patricia McGuiggan and her colleagues set out to establish in their recently published paper “Stewing in Its Own Juices? The Permeability of PET by Water and Acetic Acid”. Through a series of experiments, the […]
Materials Science and Engineering graduate student Alex Komin was recently awarded the very competitive Ruth L. Kirschstein Predoctoral Individual National Research Service Award (Kirschstein-NRSA). The funding institute for the award is the National Institute Of Neurological Disorders And Stroke (NINDS). The success rate for obtaining an F31 award was 23.8% (for all NIH institutes) in 2016 and 21% for NINDS. The Ruth L. […]
