Abstract

Our recent analytical explorations and insights into the nanoworld have afforded us with new opportunities and challenges in multi-scale synthesis and manufacture of useful devices and systems, to carry unprecedented functionalities all the way to our macroworld for energy, aerospace and biomedical applications. This lecture overviews the philosophy and background of the presenter’s research group in thermomechanical materials processing and manufacturing process modeling and control by scanned distributed-parameter, dynamic adaptive techniques. It also elaborates on his current investigations in random fractal-structured materials and structures, such as: Nanoheater sources made of reactive material multi-layers for microjoining, electronics, hyperthermias, self-sintering materials etc; Featherweight composites with nanoparticulates by ultrasonic methods for the aviation and wind turbine industry; and Bioscaffolds by fiber electrospinning for intestinal tissue engineering and delivery of growth factors, antibiotics and cancer drugs. The presentation also projects new research directions in fractal manufacturing and design of multiscale architectures such photodendra, membranes and vascular tissue scaffolds for humanitarian engineering. Research activities are coupled with related educational curricula, laboratory design and innovation activities, as well as outreach and administration initiatives through the Nanomanufacturing Program at the National Science Foundation.
