The Informatics Skunkworks is home to the NextGen Scholars at UW Madison this year and has 9 scholars participating in Summer 2018. See the UW Madison press release here.
A huge congratulations to Haiin Lu for his new publication in Acta Materialia demonstrating that, contrary to previous belief, interstitial diffusion plays a dominant role in most dilute solute diffusion in Zr. Haijin is a visiting Madison through a scholarship from the China Scholarship Council and we gratefully acknowledge there support.
Prof. Morgan and Dr. Ryan recently published a review paper “Frontiers in Thermionic Cathode Research” on IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. This work was selected as the cover image of this issue of this journal. Gongratulations! Check out this cool paper here: link. Cover image link is here: link.
Prof. Morgan and Dr. Jacobs revealed new insight into how strain alters the properties of superconducting materials. The work has been published in Nature Communications and also picked as an Editor’s Highlight. A news release can be found here.
Using advanced computational methods, Dr. Jacobs and Prof. Morgan have discovered new materials that could bring widespread commercial use of solid oxide fuel cells closer to reality. A news release can be found here or here or on College of Engineering.
