Next-Gen Conductive Materials

EKU: 3D Printing, Organic Electro Chemistry and Physics Come Together for Undergraduate Success

Eastern Kentucky University has a diverse group of three researchers whose work contributes to three of the four research pillars. Their collaborative work both as a team and in working with other KY NSF EPSCoR research groups is vital for our goal of advanced manufacturing in Kentucky. This is a tremendous example of NSF funding …

UK’s Anthony, Risko Receive NSF Special Creativity Award

By David Melanson, UK CAER Organic semiconductors, often referred to as plastic electronics, offer key advantages for emerging electronic and communication devices, provided they can meet all the appropriate metrics for performance, stability and cost. While these materials are already widely used in display technologies — the organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) used as the displays in …

Next-Generation Conductive Fibers

Flexible, organic, and conductive. Those are adjectives traditionally applied to PEDOT: PSS. Thanks to Dr. Ruben Sarabia-Riquelme and his cohorts at the University of Kentucky Applied Energy Research (UK CAER), and other collaborators at the University of Louisville, KY NSF EPSCoR funds are adding two more adjectives to PEDOT: PSS: spinnable and printable. Readily available …

SEED FUNDING SUCCESS: LAWRENCE HILL @ WKU

Seed funding creates future NSF success.  That is certainly the case with Professor Lawrence Hill at Western Kentucky University.  This seed funding allowed us to start a new project on catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide at WKU. Data from our new automated catalyst screening system was included in a full NSF proposal, and we would …
