Three Penn Engineers Recognized as APS Fellows
Penn Engineers’ Liquid Crystal Force Fields Enable New Kind of Microrobotics
A new study, published in Nature Communications, shows how simple glass particles can be instructed to follow sophisticated trajectories, which arise from their interactions with a liquid crystalline environment. The study was led by Kathleen Stebe, Richer & Elizabeth Goodwin Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, former Stebe lab member Francesca Serra, […]
Chinedum Osjui Named APS Fellow
Chinedum Osjui, Eduardo D. Glandt Presidential Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Penn, has been named a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). His fellowship nomination was for insightful determination of the structure and functional properties of soft materials and especially the self-assembly and processing of polymers by the novel application of external […]

Y-Prize 2018: Embodied Logic and Surface Wrinkle Printing
Each year, Engineering, Wharton and the Penn Center for Innovation come together for an invention competition known as the Y-Prize. Unlike the XPRIZE, where competitors come up with novel technologies to solve a particular problem, the Y-Prize starts with the technologies and challenges entrants to find commercial applications they are particularly suited for. At stake: $10,000 to […]
