  Penn and Michigan Researchers Discover New Rules for Quasicrystals
 

In an effort to address the inability to fully deduce the 3-D structure of quasicrystals, Christopher Murray, lab engineered one that is formed by self-assembling nanoparticles. Large enough to be imaged by electron microscopes, these "artificial atoms" provide insight into the rules that govern the formation of this mosaic-like form of matter.

  Senior Design 2016 in Review
  Penn Engineers, students and faculty alike, anticipate the month of May and what the best and brightest minds of each class have innovated. With ideas from improving cancer detection to responsive building materials, the slate of projects that comprised the 2016 Senior Design Competition was no exception. This year, top honors went to "OCEANUS: Autonomous Wave-Powered Desalination," developed by Chevonae Walcott, William Cheng, Christina Springer and Sasha Klebnikov, seniors from both MEAM and MSE.

  Engineering more power-efficient phase change memory devices
 
A team of Penn Engineering researchers, led by Ritesh Agarwal, Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, have made a step forward in the effort to find new and better ways of storing the 0's and 1's of computer memory in a recent paper. Along with Pavan Nukala, one of his students, Agarwal collaborated with fellow materials science professor Russell Composto to make model phase change memory devices that are more power-efficient than ever before.
