August 11, 2020 - Kim Delker

CHTM faculty member and Mechanical Engineering Assistant Professor, Nathan Jackson, is leading an award received from the Department of Defense, Army Research Office to develop advanced materials for military and civilian use. 

For the project, Jackson will focus on piezoelectric materials, which convert mechanical energy into electric energy (or vice versa), to develop a new class of multifunctional smart polymer materials that are compatible with standard microfabrication manufacturing methods.
