STAMI held its inaugural Industrial Partners Day and Exposition on October 19th-20th at Geogria Tech's Historic Academy of Medicine in Midtown Atlanta. The event was attended by over 20 different companies interested in advanced materials and interfaces and by over 150 Georgia Tech faculty, students, and researchers from a variety of schools within the College of Engineering and the College of Science. Professor George M. Whitesides from Harvard University delivered the Keynote Address while both Georgia Tech faculty and Industrial speakers participated in presentations and networking opportunties.
GTPN-COPE researchers have microfluidically prepared microcapsules with of a fluidic photon upconverting core and photonic shell from a triple emulsion as a template. The achievable dimensions and compositional flexibility of the upconverting core and photonic shell suggest a range of opportunities the future design of low-threshold photonic devices.
Soft Matter Incubator (SMI) researcher Prof. Elisabetta Matsumoto is part of a team of researchers that is helping bring hyperbolic space to anyone with a virtual reality (VR) headset. The effort is designed to allow users to experience non-Euclidean spaces in which parallel lines diverge (hyperbolic space) that can be difficult to fully imagine with purely mathematical considerations. The research was recently part of the News in Focus in Nature. Find out more here.
