RISE 2015

North­eastern Uni­ver­sity stu­dents and fac­ulty on Thursday show­cased their entre­pre­neurial spirit and inno­v­a­tive research projects across many dis­ci­plines at RISE:2015.

The Office of the Provost and the Center for Research Inno­va­tion host the university’s annual research, inno­va­tion, and schol­ar­ship expo, where stu­dents and fac­ulty this year pre­sented more than 400 posters on projects focusing on a score of fields, from marine sci­ence and drug delivery to cyber­se­cu­rity and sustainability.

Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing researcher Adnan Korkmaz presented a project titled “Fast interfacial convective assembly for the large-area integration of nanostructures.” The proposed assembly method addresses three major challenges in the integration of nanoparticles: (1) simultaneous assembly of particles into arrangements including lines and arrays on the surfaces, (2) assembly process occurs over millimeter-scale areas, and (3) assembly process is 100 times faster than fluid-driven assembly methods.
