Calling All Android Users - KU Mobile App!

Do you want to be one of the first individuals to receive the new Kettering University Mobile App?

Would you like the opportunity to have your name on the list of founders in the "About" page?

Would you like to directly play an impact in a program that will be used by hundreds if not thousands of current and future Kettering Students?

If so, please join us in BJ's Lounge Tomorrow at 6PM (2/18/2015) to join the first KU Mobile App - Android Focus Group!

Students, Faculty, and Staff are Invited!

Fabrication of Silicon Nanowire Arrays by Macroscopic Galvanic Cell-Driven Metal Catalyzed Electroless Etching in Aerated HF Solution

Third Wednesday at 12:25 pm
Cribathon 2-225
Lunch will be provided

Metal assisted chemical etching (MACE) for SiNWs fabrication is presently a widely employed top-down nanofabrication approach for SiNWs and other Si nanostructures due to its simplicity and scalability. Oxygen, which is ubiquitous in the earth's atmosphere, is an environmentally friendly and strong oxidizing agent. However, the fabrication of SiNWs using MACE process with oxygen as oxidizing agent has never been realized, because of the lack of underlying corrosion mechanism.

Radio Noise for Long-term Operating Conductors in AC Power Transmission Lines

Third week Tuesday at 12:25 pm
Cribathon 2-225
Mancinos will be provided

Currently there are a large number of transmission lines that have been in service for more than ten years, the surface of them will have exasperated. Atmospheric industrial pollution, acid rain, oxidation of the aluminum will have polluted the surface and coarsened such conductors.

IEEE Presents Electromagnetic Sensing for Nondestructive Materials Characterization by Dr. Nicola Bowler

We rely on materials in all aspects of daily living; in structures, vehicles, manufacturing processes, security and energy generation. In some instances, failure of a material can have catastrophic consequences. This talk focuses on electromagnetic properties of materials and the physics-based design of sensors to measure electromagnetic material properties nondestructively.
