It is homecoming in essence. Wanliang has been trained to be a solid mechanician at Princeton. It is only fitting and extremely fulfilling for Wanliang to receive the NSF Career Award from the “notoriously” competitive Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MoMS) program! Many thanks to the support from mentors and colleagues over the years!
Yanbing passes qualifying exam!
Congratulations to Yanbing!
Guangchao’s Paper on tunable dry adhesion published with Advanced Functional Materials!
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
