Dr. Mujibur Khan establishes Nanomaterials Lab
Dr. Mujibur Khan (ME) has established a Nanomaterials Research Lab in the Carruth Building (Room 1001B) for advanced nanostructure and nanocomposite synthesis and manufacturing. Thanks to an NSF-MRI award in 2013 and internal grants, the Nanomaterials Research Lab is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for fabrication, characterization and performance tests of nano- and nanocomposite materials for structural, bio-medical, energy and environmental applications. Dr. Khan and his graduate and undergraduate students conduct research on core-sheath bio-nanofibers for controlled release and targeted cancer drug delivery, high-performance hybrid nanocomposite fibers, nanofiber mesh for CO2 sequestration and sol-gel doping for high temperature thermoelectrics.
