Montazami 2013

Reza Montazami, an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, will be featured on Public Radio International’s (PRI) Science Friday program tomorrow, August 12.

Montazami will discuss his recent research on dissolving batteries for self-destructing devices. His research is part of a relatively new field of study known as “transient electronics” and has various applications from helping the military to destroy sensitive information to lessening the pain when removing devices during medical procedures. Montazami and his research team recently published their findings in the Journal of Polymer Science, Part B: Polymer Physics. Tune in to Public Radio International on Friday at 2:20 p.m.

Montazami will also be featured on Iowa Public Radio’s ‘River to River’ on Friday to discuss the same research. Tune in to Iowa Public Radio around 12:45 p.m.
