Research findings by NanoEngineering professor, Dr.

NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Shirley Meng and colleagues have discovered the reason behind the failure of lithium metal batteries.

Researchers led by NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Ert. Cubukcu, have developed a wave guide that is three layers of atoms thin - the thinnest optical device in the world. To create it, researchers used advanced micro- and nanofabrication techniques.

Congratulations to NanoEngineering professor, Darren Lipomi for being named recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). This award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S.

NanoEngineering professor, Shaochen Chen and his team of researchers have discovered a way to use 3D printing technology to create customized implants that can boost the power of cell-based therapies to repair injured spinal cords.

NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Ying Shirley Meng, is a finalists for the prestigious Blavatnik National Awards for Young Scientists. Dr.
