Meet Drexel's New 10 Foot Tall Teaching Tool

October 18, 2017

Just in time for the beginning of the new academic year, Drexel University has a noticeable new teaching tool on campus. Standing nearly 10 feet tall and situated outside the Bossone Research Enterprise Center, opposite the Center for Automated Technologies, the steel teaching sculpture installed Sept. 15 is a welcome addition for Drexel’s engineering students. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the structure offers Dragons a chance to get hands-on when studying the various members and connections found on any steel building or bridge.

Drexel Researchers Make a Carbon Nanofiber Supercapacitor (Without The Flammable Ingredients)

September 26, 2017

A group of Drexel University researchers have created a fabric-like material electrode that could help make energy storage devices — batteries and supercapacitors — faster and less susceptible to leaks or disastrous meltdowns. Their design for a new supercapacitor, which looks something like a furry sponge infused with gelatin, offers a unique alternative to the flammable electrolyte solution that is a common component in these devices.

New Microscope Technology Gives Drexel Researchers a Detailed Look at Structure and Composition of Materials

September 21, 2017

At their core, electron microscopes work a lot like a movie projectors. A high-powered beam passes through a material and it projects something — usually something we really want to see — onto a screen on the other side. With most electron microscopes, however, capturing data is like trying to project a movie onto a dirty screen that is too small to see the whole projection. But a new camera technology, developed by researchers at Drexel University, is enabling the microscopes to present a clearer, more complete and detailed look at their featured presentation.
