From drug delivery to sustainable energy, micro and nano technology is revolutionizing the world.
Micro/Nano Research Center
The mission of the MNRC is to bring together the most creative faculty, research staff, students and industry professionals in an interdisciplinary research environment to perform cutting-edge research in the areas of micro/nanotechnology, microelectronics, optics, micro-fluidics, advanced materials, biotechnology, and MEMS. Our goals are 1) to produce cutting-edge fundamental research in the fields of micro/nano science and engineering (S&E), 2) to address societal challenges enabled by the convergence of micro/nano S&E with other disciplines, 3) to serve as a catalyst for the translation of fundamental research to commercial solutions, and 4) to train our country’s next generation of needed nano scientists and engineers.
Precise engineering of nanoparticle superlattices (NPSLs) for energy applications requires a molecular-level understanding of the physical factors governing their morphology, periodicity, mechanics, and response to external stimuli.
This paper aims to provide guidelines for selecting the correct type of carbon nanotube (CNT) to improve the mechanical properties of cementitious materials.
