The Nanomaterials Group has been busy nurturing the next generation of materials scientists and engineers. For six months, the group played host to three honors seniors from Council Rock High School North. The students worked with PhD mentors Kanit Hantanasirisakul and Kathleen Maleski on MXene research projects. They presented their final projects in a group meeting and at two regional science fairs.
In an exciting development for the field of aerospace engineering, the lightweight materials of airplanes and rockets might soon be getting stronger. A new method for making ceramic materials — which are used in propellers and heat shields — has enabled the introduction of chemical compounds to bolster their strength and could also imbue them with other useful properties. The discovery was recently reported by researchers at Drexel University and Penn State University.

Congratulations to Thomas Heng and Devon Spinelli on placing second in the 2018 College of Engineering Senior Design Competition.
Thomas and Devon gave a tremendous presentation for their project entitled “New Application of 2D Titanium Carbide in Electroacoustic Transducer”, advised by Professor Yury Gogotsi, and mentored by Dr. Katie Van Aken and Asia Sarycheva.
Current and past members of the Nanomaterials group attend the 1st International Conference on MXenes at Jilin University in Changchun, China.
8 of our recent papers are currently listed in Web of Science as Hot Papers – the top 0.1% in our field. 66 of our papers are listed as Highly Cited (top 1%). Congratulations to all authors!

We are organizing the 1st International Conference on MXenes at Jilin University (Changchun, China) this week. The conference program is attached. Prof. Barsoum will be giving an invited talk and three post-doctoral researchers our my group (Xu Xiao, Chris Shuck and Narendra Kurra) will be presenting their work as well.

Congratulations to our Post-Doctoral Researcher Chris Shuck, who was given the “Outstanding Dissertation Award” at the Commencement at his alma mater University of Notre Dame last week. The award is given to the top graduating graduate student in the department. It was a $1000 award meant to cover the purchase of the academic robes, which Chris can proudly wear now!
Our Senior Design team of Thomas Heng and Devon Spinelli won the best presentation for the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. They will represent our Department in the College of Engineering Senior Design Competition.
Congratulations to the team and their mentors!
Undergraduate Co-Op, Natalia Noreiga, was selected for the 2018 John J. DeLuccia Scholarship Award (ASM) and the 2018 MASWE Scholarship.
On Thursday 5/17, Natalia recieved the ASM scholarship in person at the ASM Chapter’s Awards and Past Chair’s Night. Each award comes with a $1,500 Scholarship.
