NSDr. Nelson Sepulveda, Associate Professor of electrical and computer engineering, recently received an NSF EAGER grant: “Combining FerroElectret NanoGenerators (FENG) with smart materials for enabling unique performance in microdevices”.  Congratulations!

This exploratory project is aimed at merging FerroElectret Nanogenerator (FENG) and smart materials in micrometer-sized-based devices. This is expected to establish new performance theoretical limits in the operation of micro-electro-mechanical and optical systems; and to enable unprecedented functionality.
