Materials Science and Engineering Researchers Confirm Long-held Assumption about Brittleness of Materials

 

Until now, researchers and professionals in the materials science field have only assumed that as a material becomes more brittle, it also becomes less tough. University of North Texas researchers have confirmed that assumption and will present their work at the 23rd annual World Forum on Advanced Materials in Lincoln, Nebraska, in May.

Engineering Graduate Student Wins First Prize at International Conference

Jessica Rimsza, a graduate student from the Materials Science and Engineering Department (MSE), won first prize in student poster contest at the U.S.-Germany joint conference on glass and optical materials held in Aachen, Germany, in May.

Dr. Jincheng Du, an Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, has been awarded a Department of Energy (DOE) grant to study the corrosion and chemical durability of glasses through the Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP).

Engineering Faculty Participate in Faculty Abroad Seminar to Mexico

A group of UNT faculty and staff traveled to Mexico for an enriching time of discovery and professional growth through the 2014 Faculty Abroad Seminar (FAS). FAS, a 10-day professional development seminar, is sponsored by UNT-International in collaboration with the Office of the Provost and the Office for Faculty Success.

UNT Researchers Create New, Stronger Plant-based Carbon Fiber

Researchers at the University of North Texas have created a new carbon fiber from plants that can replace common petroleum and coal-based products in wide range of goods including parts for cars, aircraft, electronics and sports equipment. The patent-pending carbon fiber also is stronger and lighter than similar products on the market.

The new carbon fiber is made from C-lignin, a linear polymer that was discovered by UNT Distinguished Research Professor Richard Dixon and Research Professor Fang Chen in 2012 and reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
