Research featured in Optics and Photonics News

Research by Rana Biswas, ECpE professor, and Akshit Peer, ECpE PhD student, published in Nanoscale, was featured in Optics and Photonics News last week. Biswas and Peer’s work demonstrates a technique for achieving an optical transmission, with modeled electric-field enhancements as high as a hundredfold, using a continuous film of gold on a corrugated, “nanocupped” … Continue reading Research featured in Optics and Photonics News

Iowa State professor, post-doctoral associate explore potential of discovering new phases under high pressure and shear

Valery Levitas—Schafer 2050 Challenge Professor and faculty member of aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering—and his post-doctoral associate Mahdi Javanbakht, have published the paper “Phase transformations in nanograin materials under high pressure and plastic shear: nanoscale mechanisms,” in the high-impact journal Nanoscale. There are two main challenges in the discovery of new high-pressure phases and the transformation … Continue reading Iowa State professor, post-doctoral associate explore potential of discovering new phases under high pressure and shear
