NJIT Mechanical Engineering Professor Publishes Article in PNAS

NJIT Mechanical Engineering Professor Pushpendra Singh and his graduate students Muhammad Janjua and Sai Nudurupati have co-authored with Dr. Nadine Aubry of Carnegie-Mellon University an article that was featured in the recent issue of The Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS). In their paper, “Micro- and Nano-particles Self-assembly for Virtually Defect-Free, Adjustable Monolayers,” they report on their experiments in which ordered monolayer assemblies with adjustable lattice spacing are formed on liquid surfaces by applying an electric field normal to the interface. According to Dr. Singh, this striking result has tremendous potential technological applications in fields where precisely structured materials are used.
