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.
Srivatsava Krishnan – a graduate student in the lab defended his thesis plans and successfully passed the candidacy exam. His thesis titled “Effect of Interfacial Adhesion on the Luminance of Mechanoluminescent Smart Structures” will continue to investigate the optical multifunctional structures for structural design, health monitoring and prognosis.
Prasant Vijayaraghavan – a graduate student in the lab defended his thesis plans and successfully passed the candidacy exam. His thesis titled “Investigating the Effect of Thermoelectric Processing on Ionic Aggregation in Smart Material Ionomer Composites” will continue to investigate and develop our approaches to 3D printing smart thermoplastic composites.
Vijay Venkatesh presented his poster titled ‘Near-Field Electrochemical Imaging of Tissues using Surface Tracked-Scanning Electrochemical Microscopy (ST-SECM)’ at the 10th Annual Translational to Clinical (T2C) Regenerative Medicine Wound Care Conference at The Ohio State University on 10 March 2017. His poster won the 2nd place at this conference. Congratulations! Vijay
We are kicking-off the year’s academic exams with Paul Gilmore’s candidacy exam. Details for the exam are provided below:
Proposed Dissertation Title:
Design of Conducting Polymer Cathodes for Potassium-Air Battery
3rd Feb 2017 between 1pm and 3pm
E525 Scott Lab, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
The Ohio State University
Columbus, OH – 43210
We thank financial support from National Science Foundation’s CBET Division for enabling this research.
Undergraduate researchers in the lab pursuing honors research program
- Victoria Yee – B.S. (Aerospace Engineering)
- Chris Marino – B.S. (Mechanical Engineering)
receive College of Engineering scholarships for their research proposals. They join the list of four other lab alumni that have received similar scholarships, and we are proud of their achievements!
Paul Gilmore’s poster titled ‘Functionally graded Cathodes for Potassium-Air Battery’ and Travis Hery’s poster titled ‘Smart Membrane Separators’ were selected as one of best poster awards at 2016 IMR Materials Week from among 100+ participants.
Congratulations Paul and Travis on this recognition!!!
As May rolls around every year, it is materials week at OSU Institute of Materials Research. Students from Integrated Material Systems lab participate in a significant manner, and will be presenting four posters on various materials research topics.
