Assistant Professor Nanshu Lu at the University of Texas, Austin is among the 2012 class of MIT Technology Review 35 Innovators under 35 (TR35), with the citation of "soft, flexible electronics bond to skin and even organs for better health monitoring". Since 1999, the editors of Technology Review have honored the young innovators whose inventions and research are likely to be influential for a very long time.
Congratulations on such a distinguished honor!

Understanding the adhesion between graphene and other materials is crucial for achieving more reliable graphene-based applications in electronic devices and nanocomposites. The ultra-thin profile of graphene, however, poses significant challenge to direct measurement of its adhesion property using conventional approaches. We show that there is a strong correlation between the morphology of graphene on a compliant substrate with patterned surface and the graphene-substrate adhesion.

Call for abstract-ASME IMECE 2011 Symposium on Integrated Structures and Materials in Advanced TechnologiesSubmitted by Teng Li on Tue, 2011-03-01 14:46.
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to a Symposium on Mechanics of Integrated Structures and Materials in Advanced Technologies at the ASME 2011 IMECE, to be held Nov 11-17, 2011, at Denver, Colorado. This symposium will be the sixth in such a symposium series organized by ASME Technical Committee of Integrated Structures since IMECE 2006. We hope you can join us and continue the success of this symposium series.
Deadline of abstract submission is Monday, 7 March 2011.
The ASME Applied Mechanics and Materials Conference, McMAT-2011 (31 May ~ 2 June 2011, Chicago, IL)
Symposium 7: Low Dimensional Carbon NanoMaterials: Properties and Applications
Deadline for abstract submission: 30 Jan. 2011
As announced on 5 Oct. 2010, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov of the University of Manchester won the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene". Geim and Konstantin first reported the experimental observation of graphene in 2004 . Novoselov, 36, is also the youngest physics laureate since 1973.
We welcome applications for an Ellen William Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA.
