Using a nanoparticle as a “tuning device,” researchers at the McKelvey School of Engineering have devised a way to control electromagnetically induced transparency — a feature of light which allows it to pass through opaque media.
Washington University’s Jerome Cox and Jack H. Ladenson join a small but distinguished group of fellows of the National Academy of Inventors, the highest professional distinction accorded solely to academic inventors.
Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis have solved a mystery: How did arsenic show up in aquifer water that had been triple purified? Dissolved organic compounds.
William Kwang-Yeh Tao, an emeritus trustee of Washington University, died Dec. 17, 2019, in Franklin, Tenn. He was 102. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, in Graham Chapel.
Patricia Weisensee, a mechanical engineer in the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, combined properties similar to those seen in a lotus leaf with those found on rose petals to find a more efficient way for droplets to evaporate from a surface.
The interdisciplinary Division of Computational and Data Sciences, one of a few of its kind in the country, focuses on turning the computational lens on social sciences. In the new PhD program, students have two advisers, one in computer engineering and one in a social science domain from social work and public health, political science, or psychological and brain sciences.
Damena Agonafer, assistant professor at the McKelvey School of Engineering, received a five-year $500,000 CAREER award from the National Science Foundation for research into different modes of heat transfer during evaporation.
A new, joint master’s degree program and shared aerosol science research facility is the latest collaboration in a long history of partnerships between the McKelvey School of Engineering and the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
With a $1 million grant from NASA, the McKelvey School of Engineering’s Randall Martin is combining satellite data with measurements on the ground to better understand the pollution that makes us ill.
J. Mark Meacham, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the McKelvey School of Engineering, has received a five-year $500,000 CAREER award from the National Science Foundation for his research using algae cells to study devices he builds in the lab.
