Professor Allain has received the 2017 College of Engineering Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research for his work unifying concepts from nanotechnology, nuclear engineering and materials science. NPRE Department Head Jim Stubbins highlighted Prof. Allain’s research group for its impact forging new fundamental and applied research directions in emergent areas of material surfaces and interfaces exposed to extreme […]
Advanced Science News featured the article Magnetic Healing of Brain Injury by Professor Allain’s group highlighting the magnetic natural hydrogel MBNC as a novel, multi-functional biomaterial that would provide a focal magnetic attractive force at the local region near the aneurysm neck orifice. The RSSEL group recently published on this new alternative method of using scaffold stents […]
Professor Allain was invited to Los Alamos National Laboratory, Materials Science & Technology Division where he presented the seminar titled “Challenges to a foundational understanding of the plasma-material interface in plasma-burning nuclear fusion reactors”.
Congratulations to Michael Toriyama for being selected by the Harvard College Undergraduate Research Association (HCURA) to present RSSEL’s work on Multi-Scale Computational Irradiation Surface Science at the 2017 National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) at Harvard University.
Hanna Schamis will be the first RSSEL graduate student to conduct research at ITER during her five month internship opportunity at the world’s largest fusion experiment in Spring 2017. Under the supervision of Gregory de Temmerman, Coordinating Scientist Plasma Edge & PWI Science and Operations Department (SCOD)/Science Division (SD)/Tungsten Divertor & Plasma-Wall Interactions Section (TDPW), Hanna will be working on […]
Congratulations to Brandon Holybee, who has been selected to receive the prestigious Lam Research Corporation Scholarship. Lam Research Corporation is an American corporation that engages in the design, manufacture, marketing, and service of semiconductor processing equipment used in the fabrication of integrated circuits.
NPRE’s graduate students Felipe Bedoya and Hanna Schamis have been highlighted for their work at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) this year. Felipe Bedoya was a visiting graduate student at PPPL during the last NSTX-U run period, during which he took thesis data with the Materials Analysis and Particle Probe (MAPP) developed at RSSEL. Bedoya used the […]
Prof. Allain has been chosen as an Engineering at Illinois’ Faculty Entrepreneurial Fellow for the 2016-17 year. He joins the second class of Faculty Entrepreneurial Fellows, a program first of its kind in a U.S. College of Engineering supported by a group of passionate alumni. Fellows focus on bringing their work to the world by developing a technology and […]
