Past Projects

Non-Contact Mechanical Evaluation of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics with the Electromagnetic Mechanical Apparatus (EMMA)

This project is about materials for extreme environments. The materials are Ultra High Temperature Ceramics (UHTCs) used in supersonic/hypersonic vehicles in leading edges and nose cones where they experience extreme mechanical and thermal loads. Temperatures can go above 2000C. We...

Integrally Cored Ceramic Molds fabricated by Ceramic Stereolithography (Cer-SL)

Ceramic stereolithography (Cer-SL) builds ceramic green objects from CAD files from many thin liquid layers of powder in monomer, which are solidified by polymerization with a UV laser, thereby ÒwritingÓ the design for each slice. Since it is possible...

Photocurable Ceramic Suspensions for Large Area Maskless Photopolymerization (LAMP)

Photocurable ceramic suspensions are ceramic-monomer suspensions which polymerize when illuminated by light.  This project engineerings the suspension composition for use in a Large Area Maskless Photopolymerization (LAMP) machine. LAMP, which was created in collaboration with Prof. Suman Das at...

HECAM: Hydrogen Energy with Carbon Materials

HECAM is the novel concept of pyrolyzing hydrocarbonfuels to produce hydrogen fuel and carbon materials,without generating CO2. Pyrolysis is the applicationof heat in the absence of oxygen. No oxidation orcombustion occurs; therefore it is CO2-free. Pollutinghydrocarbons fuels are converted into...
