CU Boulder researchers are gradually and safely returning to campus to continue their work in the lab. Read about Assistant Professor Kaushik Jayaram and graduate student Parker McDonnell's return to research.
During the coronavirus pandemic, Greg Potts, machine shop coordinator in the Idea Forge, joined many others in pursuing a new hobby: mask-making. He has made over 250 masks and plans to sew at least 100 more.
Researchers in CU Boulder’s Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering recently uncovered new information that could revolutionize the design of electrohydraulic soft actuators to enable robots to perform at faster speeds.
It is the nature of an engineer to meet challenges with curiosity and persistence until a solution arises. Right now, our students and faculty meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic every day as they provide clear and accurate information for the public, take on and solve key research questions rapidly and collaborate with everyone at the table trying to solve the challenge.
Researchers found a new way of understanding the vaporization behavior of mixtures. The work is described in “Vaporizable Endoskeletal Droplets via Tunable Interfacial Melting Transitions,” a paper published in Science Advances this April.
Artimus Robotics, a spinout company of CU Boulder’s Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering, recently received $225,000 through the National Science Foundation’s Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program.
