Researchers have experimentally demonstrated how to harness a property called negative capacitance for a new type of transistor that could reduce power consumption, validating a theory proposed in 2008 by a team at Purdue University.
Purdue University will offer “Life of a Faculty Entrepreneur: Discovery, Development and Translation,” a course that presents essential information regarding research commercialization and entrepreneurial processes for faculty, graduate students and researchers in spring 2018.
AAE Professor Michael Sangid led a team of researchers who are helping to predict the future of lightweight vehicles enabled by composite materials. The Purdue team looked at experimental characterization of the composite microstructure, validation of the predictive engineering tools, and uncertainty quantification of the measurement techniques.
Elijah Sindelar is focused on power systems in his engineering studies and on the football field. As quarterback for the Purdue football team, Sindelar, an electrical engineering major, led the Boilermakers against Arizona in the Foster Farms Bowl game, December 27.
