UC San Diego Mechanical Engineering Professor Renkun Chen spray paints a novel material designed that could significantly improve the cost competitiveness of solar energy by converting more than 90 percent of the sunlight it captures into heat.  Read More

 

"Biological Materials Science" is written by Po-Yu Chen and Professor Marc Meyers and is intended to be a text that will introduce the fertile field of Biology to Materials Science and Mechanical Engineering.

Professor Miroslav Krstic has received the triennial Chestnut Textbook Prize of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) for the book Boundary Control of PDEs. The award is named in honor of late Harold Chestnut, the founding president of IFAC ('57), president of IEEE ('73), and member of NAE ('74).
