Sandhage and Tsukruk to Lead New BIONIC Center

Full Summary:

Two COE faculty members have been named as co-directors of a new U.S. Air Force Center of Excellence. This center will focus on the design of nanostructures for energy harvesting and adaptive materials, and develop tools to optimize critical cognitive processes of the modern war fighter. The $10.5 million Center, known as the Bio-nano-enabled Inorganic/Organic Nanostructures and Improved Cognition (BIONIC) center, will be led by Drs. Vladimir Tsukruk and Kenneth Sandhage, professors in the School of Materials Science and Engineering.
