A pair of Clemson scientists has spent the past decade exploring the intricacies of the butterfly proboscis, one of nature’s most multifarious body parts. Their ever-increasing fount of knowledge is expected to eventually lead to manufactured devices that could revolutionize medical procedures and other yet-to-be-conceived applications.
Eight faculty members in the College of Engineering and Science received awards on May 4 at a dinner held in their honor and attended by their families, colleagues and top college officials. The honorees were Thompson Mefford, Steve Stuart, Joe Kolis, Scott Husson, Tim DeVol, Naren Vyavahare, Robert Riggs and Mary Beth Kurz. The college […]
A workshop that is drawing participants from at least 11 countries to exchange the latest ideas on materials and devices that emit light will be held in Greenville, thanks two two Clemson University faculty members. This is the first time in its 11-year history that the International Workshop on Photoluminescence in Rare Earths: Photonic Materials […]
A group of Clemson University students believes everyone should have access to healthy foods. The students are developing Tiger Gardens to demonstrate how healthy vegetables can be grown anywhere, even on concrete.
Seven Clemson University students have received Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation, and five others received honorable mention awards in the national competition.
A Clemson University professor who specializes in making optical fiber and has won just about every top honor in his field has added another high-flying accolade to his collection.
A Clemson University professor emeritus who has drawn inspiration from nature to create new types of fiber was recognized for the impact he has had on a professional and scientific society. Michael Ellison has received the inaugural Distinguished Service Award from The Fiber Society, a nonprofit that advances knowledge in fibers, fiber-based products and fibrous […]
The College of Engineering and Science presented its Classified Staff Awards at its 2015 holiday luncheon. Outstanding employees were recognized for performance, achievements, or accomplishments that are exemplary and that contribute to the success of the college. The college expanded the award this year to honor two staff members, both of whom received the monetary […]
Imagine bandages that detect infections, flexible paper light bulbs that screw into a light socket or food containers that notify you of an allergen inside. Now imagine all of this technology is created on a printing press and that Clemson University is on the cusp of helping bring it to mainstream America.
At the spring faculty meeting, Clemson University honors outstanding faculty and those who have achieved emeritus status. This year the College of Engineering and Science had two awardees and seven emeriti faculty. The Centennial Professorship Award was presented by Robert Jones, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. The award went to Richard Figliola, […]
You’re going to have to think very small to understand something that has the potential to be very big. A team of researchers, including Kyle Brinkman of Clemson University, developed a material that acts as a superhighway for ions. The material could make batteries more powerful, change how gaseous fuel is turned into liquid fuel and help power plants burn coal and natural gas more efficiently.
Clemson University researcher Marek Urban is developing polymers that heal themselves like skin.
An associate professor of materials science and engineering in his first year at Clemson University will receive an award from a professional society that will send him to Poland as its representative at an international conference. Kyle Brinkman has been chosen as recipient of the 2015 TMS Young Leaders International Scholar–FEMS Award. The award is […]
Minerals that endure in nature for millions of years are inspiring a Clemson University-led research team to explore whether new materials could be developed to encase nuclear waste for safe storage.
Clemson University materials science and engineering professor Marek Urban and his team create groundbreaking, complex materials that can heal themselves in response to changes in light, temperature or other stimuli.
