  • The students in Professor Shin's group presented three papers on micro machining at the upcoming  International Conference on MicroManufacturing held on April 5-8, 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin.  See the details from the conference web site.

  • Professor Shin received a second NSF Partnership for Innovation grant on laser-based manufacturing and materials processing in a partnership with Northwestern University.

  • The latest news media articles on our research in the laser-based fabrication of biomedical implants and stents have appeared in many different magazines and web news portal sites.  To see the articles, visit Press Release page.

  • Professor Shin gave the plenary talk on "Advanced Laser Technologies for Fabrication of Bio Implants and Stents in the Future" at the Advanced Laser Applications Conference (ALAC) held on 14-15, 2009, San Jose Marriott, San Jose, California.

  • Professor Shin gave a talk at the Workshop on LASER AND PRODUCTION: CHARACTERISTICS, APPLICATIONS AND FUTURE TENDENCIES, which was held at the International Fair BI-MU 2008 (URL) in Milano Italy, on October 4th, 2008.  He delivered a speech on the State of the Art in industrial research and new tendencies in laser applications in USA.

  • A new femtosecond laser has been acquired from Spectra Physics and is now in operation.

  • The Center activities were displayed at the NSF Partnerships for Innovation Workshop, which was held during March 31-April 1, 2008 in Washington D.C. Purdue President France Cordova delivered the keynote speech at this workshop.

  • One of the technologies being developed at the Center,  Integrated Laser Cell, was chosen as one of 100 technologies for display at the “World’s Best Technology Showcase.” This showcase was held in Ft. Worth/Dallas, TX on March 25-27, 2008.

  • Dr. Shin served as the organizing chair of the 2009 ASME International Conference on Manufacturing Science and Engineering, which will be held during Oct. 4-7, 2009 at Purdue University.  The conference draw more than 300 attendees from all over the world.

  • Various Center projects were displayed on Nov. 9th at the Indiana Entrepreneurship & Innovation Day “Innovation Showcase” at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis

  • Some results of our laser projects were presented at ICALEO2007 and International Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conferences.  Kevin Schoeffel won the 3rd place in the student design contest with design of the laser cladding nozzle.

  • Professor Shin and his former student, Yinggang Tian, have been selected as the recipient of the 2007 ASME Blackall Machine Tool and Gage Award for the paper entitled "Thermal Modeling for Laser-Assisted Machining of Silicon Nitride Ceramics with Complex Features". The following is the brief description of the Award.

The Blackall Machine Tool and Gage Award is presented for the best current original paper or papers (not published elsewhere) which has/have been presented before ASME and/or published by ASME during the two calendar years immediately preceding the year of the award.
