Some of the engineering projects underway between ASU and DCU researchers:
Nanofabrication – Advanced Surface Engineering Methodologies (PDF)
As devices diminish in size, fall in price and decline in energy consumption, the challenges for manufacturing increase. Researchers at ASU and DCU have teamed up to further extend our nanofabrication capability and are working on next-generation surface removal processes for the precise engineering of surfaces and devices that will underpin the sustainable development of our economies.
The presence of water-borne pollutants and their possible effects on living organisms has emerged as a serious environmental concern. There is an increasing need for cost- and energy-efficient clean technologies such as advanced oxidation processes for the removal and degradation of pollutants before they find their wat into ground water wells, surface waters and drinking water. This collaboration between ASU and DCU will advance the creation of an innovative and cost-effective new technology that will lead to innovation in water treatment processes.
