We are excited to share that our group has achieved a significant advance on tunable dry adhesion using soft hollow pillars under low pressure. Dry adhesion ~150 times change within one second using low pressure ~10 kPa is reported in a paper with Advanced Functional Materials! The link is here: https://doi.org/10.1002/adfm.202209905
On Thursday August 11, 2022, Siavash successfully defended his thesis and now he is ready to graduate ASAP!
We are excited to share the news that SRG is awarded a $550k NSF Partnership for Innovation (PFI) grant to develop prototypes of soft grippers based on dynamically tunable adhesion. This is a collaborative project with SRG’s longtime collaborator, Prof. Kevin Turner at Penn. This PFI award is a critical step towards commercialization of the […]
SRG undergrad member Jason has received a $5,000 SOURCE grant to conduct research on novel smart materials under mentoring from Prof. Shan. SOURCE stands for the Syracuse Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Engagement. We thank SU for the support!
Congratulations to Chenxu on passing this milestone. Now officially a Ph.D. candidate!
Yanbing is currently finishing his Master degree from SU. He will join SRG in January 2021 as a Ph.D. student. Welcome!
This marks our group’s first paper with IJSS. This is Chenxu’s first paper. What a start! Second author Xuanhan is currently a Ph.D. student at UNR. We thank Prof. KT Wan at Northeastern for leading the efforts on this one!
After waiting for OPT for almost 5 months, Dr. Guangchao Wan will join SRG as the group’s first postdoc in April 2021. Guangchao obtained his Ph.D. from Dartmouth College under the advising of Prof. Zi Chen (now at Harvard Medical School). He will be co-advised by Prof. Teng Zhang in MAE Dept. at Syracuse University.
