TEXT SIZE

9:54 a.m., Aug. 7, 2013--The University of Delaware Department of Materials Science and Engineering has announced invited speakers for its fall lecture series.

A myriad of topics will be covered in the series, which will be held Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. in Room 322 of the new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (ISE Lab).

Research Stories

Phosphorous fertilizer

Researchers at the University of Delaware have discovered unique behaviors of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles that show promise as a phosphorus nanofertilizer and could be used to help slow the release of phosphorous in soils.

Confidence and risk

UD accounting professor Jennifer Joe's research is the first ever to document the ways that confidence in managers can influence audit quality.

Lectures are scheduled as follows:

  • Aug. 21: Chuanbing Tang, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, University of South Carolina, “Advancing Metallocene Polymers: from Controlled Polymerization to Macromolecular Templates and Medicinal Chemistry."
  • Sept. 18: Nanshu Lu, assistant professor of the aerospace and mechanics engineering, University of Texas, “Bio-Integrated Electronics."
  • Oct. 2: Virgil Perec, P. Roy Vagelos Chair and professor of chemistry, University of Pennsylvania, "A Materials Genome Approach to Complex Systems and Synthetic Methods."
  • Oct. 9: Lan Yang, professor of electrical and systems engineering, Washington University, St. Louis, “On-Chip Whispering-Gallery-Mode Microresonators for Lasing and Single Nanoparticle Sensing."
  • Nov. 6: Gary Wnek, faculty director and professor of macromolecular science and engineering, Case Western University, Cleveland, “Thinking Small About Polymer Fibers: Lessons from Biology and Applications in Medicine."
  • Nov. 13: Jennifer Dionne, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, Stanford University, "Mind the Gap: Quantum Effects and Optical Magnetism in Plasmonic Particle Junctions."
