Meghan Bush, an engineering physics senior at Tulane University, would like to work at NASA one day, and if her recent experience at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland is any indication, NASA would be lucky to have her.
Bush, interning in the Photovoltaic and Electrochemical Systems Branch... more
A Tulane team selected to compete in the APT/PBS reality show “Make48” may take home a top prize. But you’ll have to tune in to see just what the team invented and where it placed out of 12 national collegiate teams.
Billed as the “world’s fastest invention competition,” “Make48" is a MakerSpace-... more
A Tulane University materials physics and engineering scientist is one of only 10 scientists being honored nationally by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Michael Naguib, an assistant professor in the Tulane School of Science and Engineering, is the winner of a Ten at Ten Award from the energy... more
A Tulane University physicist has concluded a study that he says will help scientists unravel the mystery of high temperature superconductivity and aid in designing a material that can deliver superconductivity at room temperature.
A superconductor is a material that, when cooled to a temperature... more
They called their project TU Wheelies, and Tulane University biomedical engineering seniors beamed when they were invited to explain their invention.
“The idea is to reduce the constraints that motorized wheelchair users face when traveling over uneven surfaces,” said Dana Kaplan, who teamed up on... more
A Tulane University researcher is leading a U.S. Department of Energy project to develop a hybrid solar energy converter that generates electricity and steam with high efficiency and low cost.
Utilizing an approach that more fully captures the whole spectrum of sunlight, the project generates... more
Daniel Rees, a graduate student in the Bioinnovation IGERT program, loads samples into an aggregation rate generator (ARGEN) instrument in the Center for Polymer Reaction Monitoring and Characterization (PolyRMC). Rees is working under the supervision of physics professor Wayne F. Reed to... more
Aide Wu, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in materials science, works with a second generation automatic continuous online monitoring of polymerization reactions instrument (ACOMP) in the Tulane University Center for Polymer Reaction Monitoring and Characterization (PolyRMC). Wu works at PolyRMC... more
A recent discovery by a team of researchers led by Tulane University advances fundamental knowledge that could one day lead to more energy-efficient computers, televisions, cellphones and other electronics.
The researchers’ discovery of a new magnetic topological semimetal is featured in the latest... more
Angel Allen has a long way to go before she has to decide on a career path. But if you ask her now, the rising eighth-grader at Paul Habans Charter School will tell you that she wants to be an engineer. She wants to design cars that are powered by wind energy, and hopes her love of math and science... more
