Contact printing with shape-memory polymers: Less expensive, more efficient

September 29, 2015

University researchers are developing a contact printing process, using shape-memory polymers, that would be less expensive and more energy efficient than other nanofabrication processes now in use. They believe the process could not only advance the nation's nanomanufacturing capabilities but, closer to home, contribute to Rochester's role as a national hub for next-generation integrated photonics.

Celebrating 100 years of UR chemical engineering: Beginnings

January 2, 2015

(Watch throughout 2015 for these monthly snapshots of important events and individuals that help tell the story of Chemical Engineering at the University of Rochester during the last 100 years. They draw upon John Friedly's informative 75 Years of Chemical Engineering: 1915-1990, material from Rare Books and Special Collections at Rush Rhees Library made available with the help of University Archivist Melissa Mead, and  the department's own files.)
