Purdue part of national research contract for hypersonic vehicles

January 18, 2018

Purdue University is part of a team led by the University of Dayton Research Institute, funded with a $9.8 million, three-year contract from the Air Force Research Laboratory, for research and development in materials and structures for reusable hypersonic vehicles. Hypersonic vehicles, which travel at speeds faster than five times the speed of sound, experience significant thermal and aerodynamic loads, said Steven P. Schneider, a professor in Purdue’s School of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Targeting cancer with a ‘Trojan horse’

January 17, 2018

“Good drugs often go to the wrong cells. The solution is to target the drug at the diseased cells and to prevent its uptake by normal cells,” said Philip S. Low of Purdue University, U.S., delivering a lecture at IIT-Madras.

Study reveals secrets of fluid-like heat flow in solid semiconductor at nanoscale; findings important for design of new devices

January 17, 2018

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Researchers are applying the same “hydrodynamic transport model” used to study flow in fluids to explain heat transport in a solid semiconductor, with potential implications for the design of high-speed transistors and lasers. Thermal imaging of tiny nanoscale semiconductor heat sources revealed details about vortices of heat-carrying objects called phonons.

Study reveals secrets of ‘fluid-like’ heat flow in solid semiconductor at nanoscale; findings important for design of new devices

January 17, 2018

Purdue University researchers have visualized temperature changes produced by ultra-small heat sources, gold strips formed on top of the semiconductor indium gallium arsenide. The work has potential implications for the design of high-speed transistors and lasers. This image (a) depicts the device structure and experimental setup, an optical image (b) of the fabricated device and (c) an experimental thermal image.
