Congratulations to all 2017 NSF REU participants on a successful summer and poster session. Our REU student, Noah Snider (mentored by PhD Candidate Tyler Mathis), won second place during today’s poster session. Our collaborator, REU Student Greg Van Aken (Advisor Prof. Ekaterina Pomerantseva), won the Best Poster Prize. Congratulations to all!

Prof. Yury Gogotsi and Drexel students participate in the International Workshop on Energy, Environment, Water, and Sustainability (EEWS 2017) at KAIST on August 3, 2017. Prof. Gogotsi’s talk was titled, “2D Metallic Carbides and Nitrides (MXenes) and Advancement of Technology.“ View the full meeting program here.
Can you imagine fully charging your cell phone in just a few seconds? Researchers in Drexel University’s College of Engineering can, and they took a big step toward making it a reality with their recent work unveiling of a new battery electrode design in the journal Nature Energy.
The team, led by Yury Gogotsi, PhD,Distinguished University and Bach professor in Drexel’s College of Engineering, in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, created the new electrode designs from a highly conductive, two-dimensional material called MXene. Their design could make energy storage devices like batteries, viewed as the plodding tanker truck of energy storage technology, just as fast as the speedy supercapacitors that are used to provide energy in a pinch — often as a battery back-up or to provide quick bursts of energy for things like camera flashes.

Congratulations to undergraduate researcher, Nick Trainor, who has been selected as the winner of the 2017 Lewis C. Hoffman Scholarship, chosen by the Awards Committee of the Electronics Division of The American Ceramic Society. Presentation of a plaque and the $2000 scholarship check will take place during the ACerS Electronics Division business meeting at the MS&T conference in Pittsburgh this October. Congratulations to Nick!
Congratulations to Evelyn Ren, who has successfully defended her PhD thesis today.
