When Princeton University engineers want to increase the power output of their new fuel cell, they just give it a little more gas -- hydrogen gas, to be exact. Though the simple control mechanism was previously thought impossible, Jay Benziger, a professor of chemical engineering, and Claire Woo, who graduated in 2006, showed it can work.
Edwin S. Wilsey Professor William Massey '77 and Robert Vanderbei, chair of the department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, have been elected fellows of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.
