With a focus in one of the most rapidly evolving academic disciplines, Rensselaer’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering is home to nearly 150 undergraduate students and 60 graduate students. Research within the field meets an ever-increasing demand for solid materials from the designers of jet engines and rocket boosters, microelectronic devices, optical components, medical prostheses, and many other products. The principles that govern the processing and structure of materials to produce optimum properties and performance are embodied in the materials engineering curriculum.
American Institute of Physics highlights new article by former graduate student Pengyuan Zheng and Prof. Daniel Gall
The pair of researchers' work on crystalline tungsten, is published in the October issue of Journal of Applied Physics, from AIP Publishing.
Prof. Jian Shi received the Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, totalling $450,000 for three years will support Prof. Jian Shi's group to study “Nanoscale Pyroelectric Hybrid Materials Undergoing Structural Phase Transition”.
The Journal of Applied Physics announced that the paper “Electron mean free path in elemental metals” by Prof. Daniel Gall from the Materials Science and Engineering Department at RPI is one of the most read papers in 2016.
