Gurpreet Singh, assistant professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering, and his student researchers are the first to demonstrate that a composite paper -- made of interleaved molybdenum disulfide and graphene nanosheets -- can be both an active material to efficiently store sodium atoms and a flexible current collector.
University engineers and designers are developing ideas from concept to prototype using some of the latest 3-D printers. The layer by layer printing process has helped professors and students explore new possibilities for creating prototypes, formula car parts, models, tools, and -- on a less conventional note -- eyeglasses, custom-made clothes and intricately designed puzzles.
The American Nuclear Society has selected J. Kenneth Shultis, professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering at Kansas State University, to receive the 2013 Rockwell Lifetime Achievement Award.
MANHATTAN -- A team of Kansas State University engineering students won third place at the 2013 Student Unmanned Aerial Systems competition, June 20-22, at Webster Field Annex at Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland.
Steven Bellinger, Kansas State University research associate and recent doctoral graduate in nuclear engineering, began the Manhattan-based start-up company, Radiation Detection Technologies Inc., or RDT, to solve challenges in radiation monitoring.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Kansas State University have demonstrated a spray-on mixture of carbon nanotubes and ceramic that has unprecedented ability to resist damage while absorbing laser light.*
