Use of an AC rather than a DC electric field can improve the piezoelectric response of a crystal. Now, an international team of researchers say that cycles of AC fields also make the internal crystal domains in some materials bigger and the crystal transparent.
A device to quickly capture and identify various strains of virus has been developed, according to researchers at Penn State and New York University.
Jack Eckstein, a senior studying materials science and engineering at Penn State, landed an internship this summer at one of the biggest dental ceramics manufacturers in the world.
At age 65, Dan Hurwitz was facing a decision at a crossroads. Was he going to complete his dream of biking across the United States — some 3,900 miles of mountains, deserts and plains over a stretch of four months — or would he wait longer, perhaps missing his window for the feat?
Vincent H. Crespi, distinguished professor of physics, materials science and engineering, and chemistry, for being named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific society. He is being recognized for his distinguished contributions to the theoretical understanding of nanoscale materials, including carbon nanotubes and artificial spin ice.
For the first time, the Penn State College of Earth and Mineral Sciences has Millennium Scholars in all class levels — from graduating seniors to first-year students. MatSE's own Donovan Moses and Ana De La Fuente Duran are two of the more than two dozen scholars that are making an impact on improving diversity in STEM fields.
The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) will be raising money to support the Millennium Scholars Program on Giving Tuesday, slated to begin at 6:55 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 2, and lasting through 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3.
Researchers at Penn State have been awarded more than a combined $3.3 million to support advancements in the performance and efficiency of combustion turbines and turbine-based power cycles in fossil fuel power generation.
