Professor of the Practice Mike Zimmerman is developing a new generation of batteries that won't explode. Watch him talk about it on NOVA's "Search for the Super Battery."
- Assistant Professors Ayse Asatekin and Kristen Wendell are appointed to endowed professorships in recognition of their outstanding research programs and potential.
- Associate Professor Tom Vandervelde has been elected chair of the Optics for Energy Technical Group for the Optical Society of America (OSA).
- Tufts engineers have invented a chip-sized, high-speed modulator that operates at terahertz frequencies and at room temperature at low voltages without consuming DC power. It could make faster data transmission possible.
Associate Professor Lauren Black and collaborators are developing a novel tissue graft which could give new hope to pediatric heart patients.
- Professor of the Practice Mike Zimmerman is developing a solid polymer lithium metal battery, which would be significantly less likely to catch fire than the current generation of batteries.
- Biomedical engineers have created materials with embedded, pre-designed functions. The process enables the creation of mechanical components with functionality, such as surgical pins that change color with strain.
- Professor Robert Jacob has been elected Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). At most, 1% of ACM members may be fellows.
- Masoud Sanayei will help develop an advanced technology for real-time fatigue life prediction of structures.
- Tufts engineers help develop a new technique that could enhance standard criteria for early cancer diagnosis.
