As a culmination of efforts between LINK + LICENSE + LAUNCH, the College of Engineering, and a lead faculty member, SPTS Technologies, a KLA company, provided cutting-edge nanofabrication equipment through a combination of corporate sponsorship and commercial provisions that will provide Virginia Tech students and faculty the ability to conduct processes related to nanotechnology and nanoscience research.
Michel, an associate professor of geosciences, diverged from his normal path to lead a project involving numerous Virginia Tech faculty, alumni, and specialists from Carilion Clinic to use 3D printing to create nasopharyngeal swabs during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Virginia Tech scientists have discovered that incredibly small particles of an unusual and highly toxic titanium oxide found in coal smog and ash can cause lung damage in mice after a single exposure. The study also shows long-term damage occurring in just six weeks.
Liu's efforts to use extremely thin layers of fibers known as nanofibers to cover windows in buildings and cars in a multiprong effort to cut energy consumption and reduce the often bright, blinding glare of the sun earned Liu a five-year, $585,000 National Science Foundation CAREER Award.
When an opportunity arose for undergraduate students in the Virginia Tech College of Science’s Academy of Integrated Science to invite a speaker to campus, they didn’t hesitate in their first choice: renowned nanomedicine scientist Joy Wolfram.
A team of Virginia Tech researchers led by Finkielstein, an associate professor in the College of Science, has been honored with the 2019 J. Shelton Horsley Research Award from the Virginia Academy of Science.
Guoliang "Greg" Liu, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry, will use a five-year, $585,000 National Science Foundation CAREER award to create super-thin nanofibers that can cover windows in buildings and cars in a multi-prong effort to cut energy consumption and reduce the often bright, blinding glare of the sun.
