Missouri S&T researcher wins Google Faculty Research Award

Posted by on April 28, 2020

As electronic devices become more complex, the printed circuit boards (PCBs) they use need more components, including capacitors that prevent voltage fluctuations. Researchers say there is a gap between the theoretical understanding of the physics of designing and placing the capacitors and how to leverage that understanding to create the real product. That gap is the focus of research by Dr. Chulsoon Hwang of Missouri University of Science and Technology, and Google has recognized his work with a highly competitive Faculty Research Award.

Researchers awarded $2.2 million grant to develop sensors for steelmaking

Posted by on March 13, 2020

Steelmaking involves the handling of corrosive metal and oxide fluids at extremely high temperatures – about 1,600 degrees Celsius, which is several hundred degrees hotter than fresh lava from Mount Kilauea in Hawaii. Measuring the temperature, chemistry and fluid flow of molten steel under these conditions in real time is important to enable rapid responses to the changes in the steel during its production, according to researchers. The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded Missouri S&T part of a $2.2 million grant to develop new, more efficient ways to measure temperature, flow and chemistry during steelmaking to cut costs and improve worker safety.

Sensor-embedded ‘smart’ helmets could detect TBIs

Posted by on May 23, 2019

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are unfortunate occurrences during military training and deployment. Because mild TBIs can be experienced without presenting obvious signs of head trauma or facial lacerations, they are the most difficult type to diagnose at the time of the injury and patients themselves may perceive the impact as mild or harmless. TBIs are cumulative, so treating a patient within the “golden hour” – the first 60 minutes after being injured – is crucial for improved long-term recovery.
