Researchers in the Milliron Research Group at the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal light without transferring heat and, conversely, to block light while allowing heat transmission, as described in two new research papers.… Read the rest »
Delia Milliron, a ground-breaking scientist developing new materials used to create smart windows that could lead to big cost and energy savings for commercial buildings and homeowners, has accepted an associate professor position with the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering.
Dr. Milliron will join the faculty with a courtesy appointment starting in September 2013. … Read the rest »
Professor Brian Korgel and his research group have been featured on chemeurope.com for creating the first ordered arrays, or superlattices, of silicon nanocrystals, also known as quantum dots. Their work could help utilize light-emitting properties of silicon to develop things like light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or possible lasers.
Bulk silicon is one of the most commercially … Read the rest »
