ECIS, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, University of New Mexico, and Davidson College: Multifunctional Optical Coatings by Rapid Self-Assembly

Optical coatings appear on items ranging from electronic devices, photographic lenses, and windows to aircraft sensors, photovoltaic cells, and goggles for troops in the field. The coatings protect or alter the way a material reflects and/or transmits light. However, the two primary methods of applying coatings—sputtering and chemical vapor deposition (CVD)—are expensive, require highly specialized [...]

ECIS-UNM: Biomimetic Membranes for Water Purification

Clean water scarcity leads to disease, death, and often international tension. Limited clean water supplies face further stress due to its required use in a number of industrial processes. Reverse osmosis (RO) is currently the best method of desalination (making fresh water from seawater), but the energy requirements and costs for this process are tremendous [...]
