Undergraduate Research Co-Ops Travel to Korea

Undergraduate Research Co-Ops Travel to Korea

The A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials is proud to send the first cohort of 4 undergraduate researchers to South Korea for a 5-month research co-op. The students will be working with colleagues at NNFC-KAIST and KIST on individual research projects led by Drexel faculty.  This collaboration is part of the NNFC-Drexel Nano2Co-op Center, funded by the NRF and supported by Drexel’s Steinbright Career Development Center (SCDC), Office of International Programs, College of Engineering, and the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute.

 

Research Removes Obstacle to Lasers and Computers Working at Speed of Light

Colleagues at Clemson recently released a story about our collaborative research. This work started about two years ago, with  Dr. Vadym Mochalin, and was completed relatively recently.  The original paper was published in the flagship materials science journal, Advanced Materials:
Y. Dong, S. Chertopalov, K. Maleski, B. Anasori, L. Hu, S. Bhattacharya, A. M. Rao, Y. Gogotsi, V.N. Mochalin, R. Podila, Saturable absorption in 2D Ti3C2 MXene thin films for passive photonic diodes, Advanced Materials, 30, 1705714 (2018)
