Determination of bond strengths in non-woven fabrics: A combined experimental and computational approach

Non-woven materials have fiber network structures and present some good physical properties, like high porosity, high mechanical strength and high toughness.

New technique simplifies creation of nanoparticle 'magic-sized clusters'

One of the cool things about nanoparticles is also what makes them so difficult to work with: the fact that their properties are dependent on their size.

Role models for future engineers

Beverly J. Martin (BJM) Elementary School is located in downtown Ithaca and is a vibrant, diverse community, with a wide range of learners and a cohort of students struggling to become more proficient in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

CHESS-U Magnet Program update

The CHESS-U upgrade requires the construction and installation in CESR of a large number (~100) of new magnets.

Human carbonic anhydrase IX
“Seriously Sweet!” Ace K binding observed in CA IX

Human carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX) is an enzyme upregulated in tumorigenic tissue that is being targeted by small molecules as a potential cancer therapy.

CHESS-U update: First Light in ID1A3

The first hutch constructed for the CHESS-U upgrade has begun commissioning and saw first light on January 31, 2018, a short 10 months after the contract with ADC Inc. to pre-fabricate the hutch enclosures was signed.

SEM etched features of Si
New tricks for an old dog: A comparison of the etch mechanisms of germanium and silicon

Time multiplexed, deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) is a standard silicon microfabrication technique for fabricating MEMS sensors, actuators, and more recently in CMOS development for 2.5D and 3D memory devices.
