June 2020. NSF (EPMD, ECCS Division) recently awarded us an EAGER grant to support our work on wearable sensors for monitoring the health status of COVID-19 patients. The objective of this project is to advance the knowledge of design and
November 2019. The Penn State News, PSU’s official campus-wide newsletter, reported our on-going mission to advance multifunctional foldable structures that can be potentially used in future space exploration. It also highlighted Dr. Ning’s new course “Deployable Structures”, which integrated teaching
Dr. Ning was selected to receive the Haythornthwaite Foundation Research Initiation Grant from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Selected by the executive committee of the Applied Mechanics Division (AMD) of ASME, the award is bestowed in recognition of
Dr. Ning’s co-authored paper “Skin-Integrated Wireless Haptic Interfaces for Virtual and Augmented Reality” was accepted by Nature! This was a project that he worked on during his postdoctoral studies with Dr. John Rogers, and he is a contributing author of
Our paper “Soft 3D Microscale Vibratory Platforms for Characterization of Nano-Thin Polymer Films” has now been online in ACS Nano. Dr. Xin Ning is a co-first author. This paper extends our previous work on the buckled microscale 3D electronics and
Our paper “Mechanically active materials in three-dimensional mesostructures” has now been online in Science Advances, and highlighted as a featured article. The key idea of this paper is to combine advanced manufacturing and mechanics to integrate multiple, independently addressable piezoelectric
