  3. High-Speed Flow and its Control Through Plasma Technology

    06 Oct 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jonathan Poggie

    To support the design of high-speed air vehicles, a number of scientific challenges must be addressed in the prediction and control of supersonic and hypersonic flow. The present talk focuses on two main themes: large-scale unsteadiness and plasma-based flow control.

  11. Some Lessons on Entrepreneurship in Nanotechnology (and, Mechanical Engineers do 'nano', too)

    18 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Timothy S Fisher

    Professor Tim Fisher will talk about his brief excursion into starting (and stopping) a company, with a focus on lessons learned that are related to education and academic research. He will also try to convince a likely skeptical audience that mechanical engineers have something valuable to...

  12. Lessons From Nanoelectronics

    10 Dec 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

    This talk is about a less-appreciated by-product of the microelectronics revolution, namely the deeper understanding of current flow, energy exchange and device operation that it has enabled, which forms the basis for what we call the bottom-up approach.
