Purdue's Electric Vehicle Club turns battery power into horsepower

At most motorsports events, earplugs are an absolute necessity to dampen the massive roar of internal combustion engines. But attend the evGrandPrix, and you’ll only hear two sounds: students cheering, and dozens of electric race cars zooming past at 50 miles an hour – with all the sound and fury of an electric toothbrush.

These lightning-fast whirs represent a lot of very clever engineering. Purdue’s Electric Vehicle Club (EVC) specializes in creating these electric vehicles, and they recently shared the challenges of turning the quietest car into the fastest car.

The next generation of wireless systems may be built on microjet-cooled glass

Wireless communications like cellphone and Wi-Fi networks are everywhere in the 21st century, continually increasing in size, speed, and complexity. But energy efficiency isn’t keeping up. By some estimates, the wireless ecosystem as a whole may be responsible for 23% of all global CO2 emissions by 2030.

Purdue University researchers may have a solution. They are collaborating on a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) on heterogenous integration of the high-power electronics involved, built on a glass substrate. They are also developing novel cooling methods to decrease the energy consumed by these next-generation wireless networks.

Understanding the impact of ocean layers on climate change

The ocean isn’t a uniform body of water, but stratified layers of different density, temperature, and salinity. As the climate changes, these density changes are becoming more extreme – affecting the movements of microorganisms in the water, and in turn affecting the production of oxygen and removal of carbon dioxide on a global scale.

Keeping it cool: Germans and Americans collaborate on refrigeration

Summer is the perfect time to learn about air-conditioning and refrigeration, and as the largest academic HVAC lab in the world, Purdue's Herrick Labs is the perfect place. Since 2016, Herrick Labs has hosted a unique cross-cultural learning collaboration, which includes graduate students from Purdue University, Oklahoma State University, Technical University of Dresden, and Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences (HKA).
