June 11, 2013 - Using star-shaped block co-polymer structures as tiny reaction vessels, researchers have developed an improved technique for producing nanocrystals with consistent sizes, compositions and architectures – including metallic, ferroelectric, magnetic, semiconductor and luminescent nanocrystals. The technique relies on the length of polymer molecules and the ratio of two solvents to control the size and uniformity of colloidal nanocrystals.
April 25, 2013 - Using bundles of vertical zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have fabricated arrays of piezotronic transistors capable of converting mechanical motion directly into electronic controlling signals. The arrays could help give robots a more adaptive sense of touch, provide better security in handwritten signatures and offer new ways for humans to interact with electronic devices.
April 9, 2013 - Controlling the shapes of nanometer-sized catalytic and electrocatalytic particles made from noble metals such as platinum and palladium may be more complicated than previously thought.
March 18, 2013 - ECE Assistant Professor Azad Naeemi has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award for his research project entitled "Physical Models and Experimental Validation for High-Frequency Multilayer Graphene Interconnects."
February 27, 2013 - Researchers have demonstrated the use of a technique known as small angle neutron scattering (SANS) to study the effects of ions moving into nanoscale pores. The study is believed to be the first application of the SANS technique for studying ion surface adsorption in-situ.
January 16, 2013 - Researchers at Georgia Tech are major players in a team that will develop an advanced prosthetic socket system that could offer better comfort, functionality and mobility for military-veteran amputees.
January 16, 2013 - Farrokh Ayazi, a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is among the 298 individuals worldwide named as a 2013 IEEE Fellow.
