EMNL receives a three-year NSF award for “Collaborative Research: Tailoring the Stability
and Deformation of Nanocrystalline Alloys through Hierarchical Engineering” from the
Metals and Metallic Nanostructures Program.
August 15, 2014
This research is a collaborative project with Prof. Garritt Tucker at Drexel University focused on uncovering the interplay between nanoscale grain boundary physics and interfaces at larger structural length scales, which are generated by introducing periodic amorphous regions into monolithic nanocrystalline structures. Additional information can be found in award abstract no. 1410941.
EMNL welcomes first year Ph.D. candidate Mr. Jonathan Gentile.
August 01, 2014
Jonathan comes to Stony Brook University from the University at Albany with a B.S. in NanoEngineering. His Ph.D. research will focus on engineering structural inhomogeneities into metallic glasses to enable tunable shear delocalization mechanisms.
Jason’s paper with MesoScribe Technologies, “High Temperature Calibration of Direct
Write Heat Flux Sensors from 25 to 860 °C Using the In-cavity Radiation Method” is
accepted for publication in the IEEE Sensors Journal.
July 5, 2014
This paper describes the calibration of Direct Write heat flux sensors over a temperature range of 25–860 °C. The sensitivity is found to increase by a factor of two from 25 to 650 °C, after which it plateaus up to the maximum tested temperature of 860 °C. A cubic polynomial calibration function captures the temperature dependence of the sensitivity and provides good agreement for the measured data.

Department at the University of California, Irvine.
June 6, 2014
Jason’s talk on “In Situ Heat Flux Measurements in a Scramjet Combustor using Embedded Direct Write Heat Flux Sensors” described new harsh new harsh environment heat flux sensors that were fabricated using Direct Write technology and tested in a direct-connect, hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet combustor under Mach-5 flight conditions.
EMNL receives a three-year NSF award for “Collaborative Research: Elucidating the
Process of Shear Delocalization in Metallic Glass Matrix Composites” from the Mechanics
of Materials Program.
June 1, 2014
This research is a collaborative project with Prof. Eric Homer at Brigham Young University focused on developing a new understanding of the competing rates associated with shear band nucleation and propagation in metallic glass matrix composites, and the implications of these mechanics for strain delocalization and ductility. Additional information can be found in award abstract no. 1401662.
