Award Number1900077Funding AgencyNational Science FoundationEffective Date2019-08-01Expiration Date2022-07-31Funding Amount$305,097
Non-Technical Summary:Crystalline and amorphous structures stand in two extremes in term of atomic configuration in solids. In a crystalline structure, atoms are arranged according to predefined rules while in amorphous structures atoms are packed in random fashion. Quasicrystalline structure can be considered as a state between the two. Materials of crystalline and amorphous structures, represented by gold and window glass, respectively, have been known to mankind for thousands of …

This instrument acquisition grant funds an electron back scattering diffraction (EBSD) system to update an existing scanning electron microscope at Clarion University. EBSD is a powerful instrument for crystal structure analysis, especially at and near the micrometer scale. With the addition of this instrument, researchers carry out in-house basic materials characterization research, ranging from morphology observation, elemental analysis, to crystal structure characterization. The instrument…

Non-technical summary: Icosahedral quasicrystalline structure is distinguished by its unique atomic configuration. In contrast to the long history of amorphous and crystalline structures, this particular structure was first reported only thirty years ago. Furthermore, icosahedral quasicrystalline nanoparticles have not yet been reported, despite the intense study and wide applications of crystalline and amorphous nanoparticles. The focus of this project is on the fabrication of such icosahedr…

Clarion University's Venango Campus is piloting a NanoManufacturing concentration within its Industrial Technology 2-year associates in applied science degree (AAS-IT), which provides workforce proficiency in nanotechnology. The students receive an AAS in Industrial Technology and a NanoFabrication Manufacturing Technology (NMT) certificate from Penn State University. The NanoManufacturing concentration within the AAS-IT requires the core math and science courses of 4-year science degrees, an…

TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This EAGER project is aimed at obtaining free standing quasicrystalline nanoparticles from properly annealed Zirconium-based amorphous alloys through chemical and electrochemical approaches. It is known that metastable quasicrystalline nanoparticles precipitate during the initial crystallization of some Zr-based amorphous alloys. These particles are embedded in the amorphous matrix and transform to stable crystalline phases upon further annealing. The size of the precipitat…

RUI: Inducible Defenses and Community Ecology: An Integrated ApproachAndrew M. TurnerClarion University Predators play a key role in maintaining the structure and function of ecological communities, but the mechanism by which they do so is not clear. Predation has traditionally been studied in terms of how predators alter prey population size, but predators also induce shifts in prey behavior, morphology, and life-history. The non-lethal effects of predators may casca…
