ME Faculty Published Popular Text Books and Research Papers Featured in Top Scientific Journals

Cover collage of books and journal articles by ME faculty

Our faculty’s research is always catching the attention of the world’s top scientific Journals. During the past year, ME faculty have published over 415 journal papers. In addition, our colleagues have authored many important and popular books in recent years. Check out a few below.

Katsuo Kurabayashi and Xiaogan Liang’s research featured on the cover of the Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology B

Cover of JVST B

U-M ME professors Katsuo Kurabayashi and Xiaogan Liang present a study on the evolution behaviors of the transfer characteristics of MoS2 and WSe2 field-effect transistor biosensors when they are subjected to tumor necrosis factor-alpha and streptavidin solutions with varying analyte concentrations. This work advances the critical device physics highly relevant with the fabrication and implementation of reliable nonelectric biosensors based on emerging atomically layered semiconductors.

Edgar Meyhofer and Pramod Sangi-Reddy’s research featured in Nature

U-M ME professors Edgar Meyhofer and Pramod Sangi-Reddy’s research findings on heat transfer at the nanoscale level could help to advance next-generation information storage such as heat- assisted magnetic recording. In the U-M ME’s unique ultra-low vibration lab, engineers are able to measure how heat radiates from one surface to another in a vacuum at distances down to 2 nanometers.

Angela Violi’s research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science

U-M ME Professor Angela Violi’s paper titled “Formation and emission of large furans and oxygenated hydrocarbons from flames” was featured in PNAS. The paper focuses on furan-formation pathways and the work being featured employs a multifaceted experimental and theoretical approach and demon- strates that combustion generation of furans and large oxygenated hydrocar- bons can be significant, even during the combustion of very simple fuels, such as ethylene. The results suggest that furans are present from the inception of soot and are actively incorporated into the growing particles. These results are used to develop and validate a description of furan chemistry in the gas and particulate phases of combustion.

Jianping Fu’s research selected for covers of Advanced Healthcare Materials and Small

Cover of Advanced Healthcare Materials Cover of Small

U-M ME Associate Professor Jianping Fu’s research made the covers of two scientific journals. The research featured was a result of the work of his lab to develop a microengineered chip mimicking the bone marrow physiological environment and demonstrating its utility to study leukemic cell induced angiogenesis (a dynamic cellular process of the formation of new blood vessels from existing vasculatures).
