Seven Faculty Members Named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science

Seven faculty members at The University of Texas at Austin have been elected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). AAAS fellows are chosen annually by their peers to recognize their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.

Enhanced Electrical Energy Storage May Result from Research at The University of Texas at Austin

Enhanced Electrical Energy Storage May Result from Research at The University of Texas at Austin

Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin's Cockrell School of Engineering have created a new porous, three-dimensional carbon that can be used as a greatly enhanced supercapacitor, holding promise for energy storage in everything from energy grids and electric cars to consumer electronics.

Engineering Professor Awarded $1 Million for Research Enabling Scale-Up of Promising Graphene

A professor at the Cockrell School of Engineering has been awarded a $1 million grant to lead research on graphene, an atom-thick layer of carbon scientists and engineers believe could one day surpass silicon, steel and plastic and thus transform how everything from electronics, cars, airplanes and even buildings are produced.

Graphene, the Promising “Wonder” Material for Nanoelectronics, Now Passes Heat Transfer Test

The single-atom thick material graphene maintains its high thermal conductivity when supported by a substrate, a critical step to advancing the material from a laboratory phenomenon to a useful component in a range of nano-electronic devices, researchers report in the April 9 issue of the journal Science.
