We are pleased to welcome Parker Hannifin Corporation to Smart Vehicle Concepts center, and are glad to announce the initiation of a new project titled ‘Design of Matrix Materials and Additive Components for Simulcure 3D Printing’.
Smart Vehicle Concepts center is an NSF I/UCRC funded research center at The Ohio State University. More information about SVC is available at https://svc.engineering.osu.edu/
We are glad to announce the publication of our collaboration with Profs. Sen and his team in Nature Nanotechnology. The entire paper, and supporting information are available at this link.
Please check back in Fall 2017 on a tutorial on Conducting Polymers on our website.
We are pleased to announce new collaborations and research awards from NASA and Army Research Office on structural composites. Official announcements and award abstracts are available at the following links:
NASA Phase-I STTR – Structural-Health Aware Failure-Tolerant Engineered to Respond (SAFER) Additively Manufactured Systems
ARO Phase-I SBIR – Self-Rerouting and Curative Interconnect Technology (SERCUIT)
Travis Hery – a graduate student in the lab defended his thesis plans and successfully passed the candidacy exam. His thesis titled “Development of Pore Spanning Conducting Polymer as a Reversible Shutdown Membrane Separators for Li-ion Batteries” will continue to investigate the application of ionic redox transistors as shutdown membrane separators.
