Addressing air pollution: one of the biggest environmental threats to human health, alongside climate change

New grants from the NSF and NOAA promise to advance our understanding of how air pollution is affected by volatile chemical products, or VCPs — things like personal care products, cleaning products, and other consumer and industrial chemicals. The work adds to a growing body of research on air quality, aerosol behaviors and air pollution happening at CSU.

Breakthrough technique speeds up smart tech manufacturing nearly 600 times

Researchers have developed a new polymerization technique to simultaneously cure and vascularize high-performance materials in a matter of minutes instead of days, according to a new paper in Nature Communications.

The technique is inspired by biological systems such as human blood vessels or leaves on a plant. By creating microchannels inside structural polymers and composites, scientists can impart multifunctional properties to the host structure – “smart” functionality like self-healing and thermal regulation. Only now, they can do it almost 600 times faster than before.

First-generation student launches career at NASA

Danelle Lazcano-Concelman’s prestigious internships at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, proved to be life-changing experiences. She now works at NASA as a cryogenic propulsion systems engineer – not bad for someone who is the first in her family to go to college and took calculus three times just to be admitted to the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering!

Making tongues go mainstream is goal of open-source, CSU-created product

JJ Moritz, who recently completed his master’s degree in mechanical engineering, is leading the startup company Sapien LLC using technology developed at CSU. The technology senses the position of the tongue, which allows users to control video games or mobility and assistive devices with the tongue alone.
