For their senior thesis, two Princeton engineers worked across departments to solve fundamental problems and create a flexible sheet of sensors to detect strains over wide areas of structures such as buildings, bridges and dams.
After 18 years of leadership in the field of materials science, James Sturm will step down as director of the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) effective June 30. Craig Arnold, associate director of PRISM and professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, will serve as interim director.
Fundamentals of fluids Researchers in the lab of Howard Stone, the Donald R. Dixon ’69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, are applying a deep understanding of fluid flows to reveal the mechanics behind critical biological functions. In one project, Stone’s group found the unexpected formation of bacterial ribbons in the middle of flowing fluids, which has implications for understanding serious infections and has led to a collaboration with Bon
Noah Jafferis did not expect, when he started graduate school at Princeton, to invent something that has been touted in media coverage from around the world as a "magic carpet."
Princeton engineering researchers will participate in a $122 million research project to develop technologies that make buildings more energy efficient.
Princeton University physical scientists and engineers will partner with researchers at four other institutions to explore the driving forces behind the evolution of cancer under a five-year, $15.2 million award from the National Cancer Institute.
Princeton's newly acquired e-beam writer functions on a scale of billionths of a meter, but its reach extends across campus and beyond, enhancing the University's nanotechnology facilities and enabling collaborative interdisciplinary research projects.
Five engineering faculty members were among ten Princeton University scientists who teamed up with local sculptors, architects and landscape architects to create the phenomenon known as Quark Park.
