A group of scientists who have been producing breakthroughs for the past 10 years that have contributed to advances in everything from medicine to space exploration is getting a new home at the University of Central Florida
David Reid, a Ph.D. student in Dr. Sudipta Seal's research group, won 2 very prestigious awards at the 59th AVS Meeting held in Tampa. David was named a winner of the overall AVS Graduate Research Award. This award was given to 8 students, national and international, for their contributions in research.
Balaji Jayaraj (M.S., MSE, ’03 and Ph.D., MSE, ’11) is a materials engineer who specializes in the thermal barrier coatings that protect the components inside high-temperature gas turbines. But it’s his willingness to connect UCF and his company—Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas (MPSA)—that gets people to sing his praises.
Prof. Ming Su has been recognized by the Learning Institute for Elders (LIFE) at UCF with a Special Recognition Award for Gerontology Research. Su's research includes early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease by detecting multiple blood biomarkers using a method based on a panel of phase change nanoparticles.
The National Institutes of Health today awarded University of Central Florida Professor Ming Su its coveted New Innovator award, which comes with a $2 million grant.
A University of Central Florida assistant professor has developed a new material using nanotechnology, which could help keep pilots and sensitive equipment safe from destructive lasers.
On July 27, the NanoScience Technology Center and Advanced Materials Processing and Analysis Center hosted the K-12/Undergraduate/RET 2012 Summer Research Showcase. The event was organized by Professor Aman Behal (EECS and NSTC) and held in the atrium of the Engineering II building. Fifteen posters were on display at the showcase.

Inside the 21,000-square-foot UCF NanoScience Technology Center (NSTC), faculty members, students and research staff members are exploring nanotechnology’s vast possibilities. Nanomaterials are being used as drug delivery systems. As the building blocks of highly precise lasers. As the key to more efficient solar energy, rocket propulsion and environmental waste cleanup. The scope is so wide that you can’t help but wonder how the NSTC narrows down its field of research applicants to choose the next projects.
Nine research projects that promise to advance science and develop technology critical for future space missions have been selected to receive a total of $400,000 from the Florida Space Institute.
