Research impacts future of high performance photodetectors
Research by UNT PACCAR director impacts future of high performance photodetectors based on molecular membranes

Anupama Kaul, director of the University of North Texas College of Engineering’s PACCAR Technology Institute, and her research group have developed ultra-high performance optoelectronic devices based on molybdenum disulfide – or MoS2 – which shows excellent performance compared to prior studies.

UNT researchers develop wear and corrosion resistant alloys
UNT researchers use first-of-its kind process to develop wear and corrosion resistant alloys

Corrosion and wear are very common – they can happen to any material exposed to an environment. But, what if materials could be tested at the atomic level to determine exactly how and why they break down and then be improved to create ultra-high performance alloys?
