  • Computational study on controlling the optical properties of solar thermal fuels 

    Yoo, Jee Soo. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Solar thermal fuels utilize molecules that undergo reversible photo-isomerization to convert solar energy into stored thermal energy.¹ Because solar thermal fuels produce no emissions and can store and convert energy within ...
  • Energy dissipation in shape memory zirconia particles, packings, and composites 

    Champagne, Victor K.,III(Victor Kenneth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    This research project lies at the intersection of two classes of materials, namely superelastic materials and granular materials, each known for their ability to dissipate large amounts of kinetic energy. Because of their ...
  • Direct-write assembly of colloidal materials 

    Tan, Alvin Thong Lip. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Colloidal assembly, which is the spontaneous organization of nano- and micro- sized particles, is an attractive means to create materials with properties that can be engineered via hierarchy of particle composition, size, ...
