Faculty Member: Escabi, Monty
Department:
Affiliation:
Excerpt: The overall goal of Dr. Escabi’s research is to understand how the central nervous system processes complex sounds in their environment, such as speech, back-ground noise and animal vocalizations. It is very easy for animals (including humans) to detect and discriminate vocalizations in the midst of high background noise and yet it is still not […]

Faculty Member: Hebert, Rainer
Department: Materials Science & Engineering
Affiliation: Institute of Materials Science
Excerpt: Rapid solidification processing (RSP) has over the last three decades greatly extended the range of commercial alloys. The deviations from equilibrium during RSP can induce novel phases or microstructures and hence contribute to alloys with improved properties. During additive manufacturing of metallic components cooling rates reach 104 K/s locally and are therefore similar to cooling […]
