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.
Using 3-D printing tools, scientists at Princeton University have created a functional ear that can "hear" radio frequencies far beyond the range of normal human capability.
Small packages: Nanoparticles improve drug delivery A technique for encapsulating drug molecules in tiny plastic-like coatings shows promise for improving treatment of cancer and tuberculosis, while aiding the laboratory testing of new drugs. Robert Prud’homme, professor of chemical and biological engineering, developed the fundamental method, called “flash nanoprecipitation,” and has numerous collaborations with companies, medical researchers and engineering colleagues to de
Princeton engineering researchers will participate in a $122 million research project to develop technologies that make buildings more energy efficient.
