MSE research on MRS Bulletin News

By Kendra Redmond

A team of researchers at Purdue University and Texas A&M University recently demonstrated that incorporating copper layers into a thin film of the amorphous metal copper niobium (a-CuNb) can significantly enhance its plasticity. Their work, reported in the Journal of Materials Research,examines the connections between the volume fraction and architecture of these layers, plasticity, and fracture surface morphology.

Materials Engineering Students Win Graduate Research Fellowship Awards

Matthew Korey and Nelyan López Pérez receive Graduate Research Fellowship.

Mr. Korey was recently awarded a 3 year NSF GRF ( from the National Science Foundation to support his doctoral research. He will be working on sustainable polymer synthesis, polymeric composites, and additives for polymeric materials with his advisers Profs. John Howarter and Jeff Youngblood. Matthew joined the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue in 2015 after completing his BS degree in biomedical engineering from The Ohio State University.  

Ms. Nelyan López Pérez has been awarded the 2016 National Institute of Justice Graduate Research Fellowship Program in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (NIJ GRF-STEM). With its support, she will study high performance fibers used in soft body armors, how they degrade during their lifetime and how their performance is affected by changes at smaller scales. Nelyan joined the Purdue’s School of Materials Engineering in 2014. She obtained her BS in Physics from the University

of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras campus.
