Nature-inspired self-sensing materials

May 10, 2022

New work on additively manufactured (AM) self-sensing porous nanocomposite lattices, led by Prof. Wardle’s collaborator Prof. Kumar Shanmugam (Univ. of Glasgow, UK), has been featured in several media writeups and will appear on the cover of the journal Advanced Engineering Materials over the summer.  The collaboration also includes Prof. Vikram Deshpande (Cambridge Univ., UK). Prof. Wardle has collaborated on numerous additive manufacturing (AM) investigation on polymer composites and nanocomposites with Prof. Shanmugam.  Congrats Kumar!

This research has already been highlighted in more than a dozen news outlets (please see the links below):
