The 4th Annual SPN Graduate Symposium was held on March 9th in MoSE 1201A
Professor Brent S. Sumerlin, from the University of Florida, spoke on February 28, 2018.
Transparent wood composites have high strength, toughness, thermal insulation, and excellent transmissivity, and offer a route to replace glass for diffusely transmitting windows. STAMI-GTPN and -COPE Professor John Reynolds' group has used conjugated-polymer-based electrochromic materials and transparent wood to create devices that switch on-demand. The devices exhibit a vibrant magenta-to-clear color change that results from a remarkably colorless bleached state. Published in Chemistry and Sustainability (ChemSusChem).
Professor Bradley Chmelka, from University of California at Santa Barbara spoke on January 16, 2018.
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.
Professor Seth Marder, from the Georgia Tech Schools of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Materials Science and Engineering, has been elected as a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). According to the NAI, "Election to NAI Fellow status is the highest professional distinction accorded solely to academic inventors who have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and welfare of society." Professor Marder is the first NAI fellow from the Georgia Tech College of Sciences. Read more here.
