Profile
The technology was conceived at the University of Wisconsin-Madison lab for advanced materials for energy and electronics under the direction of Professor Michael Arnold. The impact of nanomaterials on society has often been limited because it is difficult to synthesize, purity, process, organize, and integrate nanomaterials and nanostructures. Our research especially draws from multiple disciplines to address fundamental materials challenges - in controlling the growth, processing, ordering, and heterogeneity of nanomaterials and in understanding phenomena beyond the scale of single nanostructures - that must be overcome to exploit these exciting components in technology.

Flexible electronics and smart bandages are key to cost savings

Flexible electronics and smart bandages are key to cost savings in the future of advanced wound care. Advanced wounds, referring to those that are non-healing for more than 4 weeks, are on the rise around the world. This is because there are an increasing number of people with poor wound healing ability, including the rising number of elderly people over 65 years of age, and the rising number of people with Type 2 diabetes.

Fuel cell advance a breath of fresh air

A promising alternative to conventional power plants, solid oxide fuel cells use electrochemical methods that can generate power more efficiently than existing combustion-based generators. But fuel cells tend to degrade too quickly, eating up any efficiency gains through increased cost.

Light provides control for 3D printing with multiple materials

3D printing has revolutionized the fields of healthcare, biomedical engineering, manufacturing and art design. Successful applications have come despite the fact that most 3D printing techniques can only produce parts made of one material at a time. More complex applications could be developed if 3D printers could use different materials and create multi-material parts.
