January 16, 2015 - An interdisciplinary team of mathematicians and physicists has developed a new quantitative approach to understanding the mysterious properties of the materials called glasses. The study is described in a paper in the Nature Publishing Group journal Scientific Reports.
December 2, 2014 - With two thousand years of experience in steelmaking, it would seem all there is to know about steel would already be known. But for Allison Beese, McFarlane Assistant Professor in Materials Science and Engineering, the secret world of steel is still unfolding.
Trolier-McKinstry’s research focuses on thin films for dielectric and piezoelectric applications. She is a Fellow of IEEE and the American Ceramic Society, a member of the World Academy of Ceramics, and a member of the inaugural class of the National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellows.
