A breakthrough between ORNL and UT could lead to a giant leap in computing.
A recent breakthrough in laser technology was made possible with the help of Jiaqiang Yan and David Mandrus.
David Mandrus, a professor in UT’s College of Engineering, has been selected as the first Jerry and Kay Henry Endowed Professor.
Since having your work recognized by your peers has long been considered a top honor for those in higher education, a trio of College of Engineering professors recently became academic all-stars.
Professor David Mandrus has his own spin on the future. Mandrus recently was chosen by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as a Moore Synthesis Investigator, a highly selective honor that carries with it $1.7 million in funding.
Researchers from UT recently garnered national attention for their part in a study that could lead to the development of tablets, TVs, and mobile devices the width of a piece of paper. First published in Nature, the article details how researchers have been able to create wires only three atoms wide using an electron beam.
