Clemson University faculty and staff are using their expertise, creativity and the generosity of their community to prepare for the phased return to campus after the COVID-19 pandemic moved the University to modified operations. As one of the premier research universities in the nation, Clemson is fortunate to have resources and a tightly knit pool of experts to draw from as well as an army of people ready to jump to the aid of fellow Tigers at a moment’s notice.
Clemson University Ph.D. student Allison Domhoff has received a $25,000 Hitachi High Technologies Electron Microscopy Fellowship to support research aimed at making energy grid-scale batteries more efficient and cost-effective.
A new series of events seeks to grow and enhance collaborations between the Clemson University research enterprise and industry. The first event of the INPSIRE series will offer small businesses and Clemson research faculty, staff and students the opportunity to learn the aspects of writing Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants.
Clemson University has expanded its microscopy capabilities available to private industry for the analysis of materials used in advanced manufacturing, health care, bio-engineering, aerospace and many other applications.
The research at COMSET covers a broad spectrum of innovations, including advances, improvements and applications for high-power lasers; organic LEDs; light-emitting plastics, glasses and crystals; and even brain-stimulating optical nanoparticles.
Researchers at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a wireless energy source that generates electricity from simple mechanical motion, such as the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand.
The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced eight researchers will receive fiscal year 2018 Technology Maturation Fund grants to support the last critical step in development needed to move new technologies to the marketplace.
A team of physicists at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a device, called a U-TENG, that is designed to take mechanical motion – like the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand – and transform it into electricity. Once generated, the electricity can power lights or electronic devices, such as calculators.
South Carolina’s position as a national leader in advanced materials just got a giant boost. A team of researchers from 10 universities across the state has received a $20 million, five-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) to establish a new initiative: Materials Assembly and Design Excellence in South Carolina, or MADE in SC.
For the second year in a row, seven Clemson researchers received CAREER awards from the National Science Foundation. They will tackle issues from creating realistic hand and finger movements for virtual reality to redesigning the way clinical trials are carried out.
A Clemson University professor who is researching a wide range of materials that could help create everything from self-healing paint to bacteria-killing medical devices was selected for an honor that goes to a small fraction of his peers. Marek Urban was chosen to be Fellow in the American Chemical Society’s Division of Polymeric Materials: Science […]
A highly accomplished doctoral candidate who has been described as relentless in the lab and has studied under a high-ranking engineer in India’s Department of Science and Technology is the recipient of a fellowship that pays for a full year of graduate school at Clemson University. Monsur Islam, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, received $20,000 as the winner of the Hitachi High Technologies America Electron Microscopy Annual Fellowship.
