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.

NanoEngineering professor, Kesong Yang, and his team of researchers have discovered new hybrid halide materials beyond perovskites. These new materials would be stable and used to design hybrid semiconductor materials for optoelectronics.

The Department of NanoEngineering would like to congratulate Dr. Jesse Jokerst, for being awarded a five-year, $550,000 grant through the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program.
