AIAA Aeroacoustics ConferenceSubmitted by IMG System Admin on Thu, 05/07/2009 - 12:00am
IMG research focuses on micro- and nanosystems for healthcare, energy, security, aerospace, transportation, consumer electronics, and other industries. Efforts include design, fabrication, characterization, and ultimately deployment of micro and nanotechnologies for a wide variety of applications. IMG is playing a leading role in the MIST Center (Multi-functional integrated system technology), an NSF I/UCRC program.

David Arnold is the Technical Program Co-Chair for the upcoming 9th International Workshop on Micro and Nanotechnology for Power Generation and Energy Conversion Applications in Washington, DC in November. Click the link for more information.
The National Science Foundation has just announced that IMG senior undergraduate researcher Jared Lee has been selected a winner of a Graduate Research Fellowship. As a winner of this prestigious award, Jared will receive funds for graduate study worth $44,500/yr for three years. Jared plans to begin his graduate work in the fall at Stanford University. Congratulations, Jared!
Congratulations are due to Vijay Chandrasekharan for the successful defense of his dissertation, entitled "A Microscale Differential Capacitive Direct Wall Shear Stress Sensor." Congratulations from all of IMG!
After graduation, Vijay plans to retrieve his shear stress sensors from the clutches of the evil Sith, who believe it is a transformative technology in their quest to rule the universe. (The force is strong in Vijay.)
Ben Griffin will be defending his dissertation, entitled "MEMS-Based Parametric Acoustic Array," on Thursday, April 2nd at 12:00 PM in Larsen 234. All are welcome to attend.
Vijay Chandrasekharan will be defending his dissertation, "A Microscale Differential Capacitive Direct Wall Shear Stress Sensor," on Monday, April 6th at 10:40am in Larsen 334. All are welcome to attend.
Congratulations to ECE doctoral student Jess Meloy on being selected to receive a 2009 NASA Graduate Student Researchers Program (GSRP) Award.
Chris Bahr will be proposing his dissertation topic, "An Assessment of Trailing Edge Noise Measurement Techniques" on Friday, February 27th at 11:30am in Larsen 234. All are welcome to attend.
Janhavi Agashe will be defending her dissertation, "Modeling, Characterization, and Optimization of Electrodynamic ZNMF Actuators" on Thursday, February 12 at 1pm in Larsen 234. All are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
A world class grazing flow impedance tube (GFIT) facility has been brought to UF and now a part of IMG. The tunnel, once used at the NASA LaRC in Hampton, VA will allow for cutting edge research to be done in the areas of acoustic liner technology and testing, shear stress measurements and synthetic jet research. Currently being installed, the tunnel should be operational by Summer 2009.
