Riding the wave of nuclear fusion

Posted by on May 10, 2022

Jack Fletcher, a senior in nuclear engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, plans to graduate in May and has already made his mark in the field. Fletcher, from St. Louis, spent the summer of 2021 working at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee as part of the U. S. Department of Energy’s Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program.

S&T researcher sheds light on solar power use

Posted by on April 20, 2022

The existence of solar technology is only one part of the renewable energy problem. Getting people to use it is another. Dr. Casey Canfield, an assistant professor of engineering management and systems engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, is one of a group of researchers looking for ways to make the process of switching to solar power easier for everyone.

Particle gel could solve low heat production efficiency for geothermal energy

Posted by on April 18, 2022

Geothermal energy comes from heated water or steam within the earth and provides a renewable source of energy to heat buildings and generate electricity. But many geothermal reservoirs also have an inherent problem – geological fractures that allow water to divert into other areas, cooling the water and the surrounding rock and limiting the efficiency of heat extraction from underground reservoirs. Researchers at Missouri S&T are working on a solution.

S&T physics researcher works to control light energy

Posted by on March 3, 2022

Light travels through opaque objects in random paths that are difficult to control but, thanks to new research by a team of physicists, light energy can be concentrated at a certain depth. This means that physicists could potentially target specific neurons or even early tumors inside tissue, which is known to usually strongly scatter light.
