Dr. Jincheng Du 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). Corrosion of glasses is prevalent and critical in a number of technological and engineering applications including long term nuclear waste disposals and their geological storage. Dr. Du and his group will use sophisticated computer simulations to understand the bulk and interfacial structure of multicomponent oxide...

Welcome to 2014 International Conference on Metallic Materials and Processing

Professor Xia is organizing the second International Conference on Metallic Materials and Processing (ICMMP 2014).The ICMMP 2014 is organized with a focus of bringing together the world materials community to discuss and review recent developments and progress in materials science, processing and computational materials, with a focus on metals. The goal is to facilitate more fruitful cooperation between researchers and to look into the future of metals research. The conference program will...

Dr. Narendra Dahotre

When surgeons need to cut or shape bone during surgery, they use a number of conventional tools including saws, drills, hammers, chisels and grinders. These tools often cause undue damage to surrounding tissues or other bones, slow down surgeries and leave patients with lengthy recovery times.

A University of North Texas professor has filed a patent on a new laser technology he and his research associate developed for cutting and shaping bone that...
