‘supercapacitors’

Cary Pint named to ’20 Under 40’ by American Society for Engineering Education

Sep. 23, 2014—Creating products that also function as ‘energy depots’ offers tremendous potential because “there are so many materials and technologies where energy storage can be integrated,” says Cary Pint. Pint, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and director of the Nanomaterials and Energy Devices Laboratory at Vanderbilt University, was named to the American Society for Engineering Education’s...

Size matters in nanocrystals’ ability to adsorb/release gases

Aug. 6, 2013—The technique, which was developed by Vanderbilt University Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Rizia Bardhan, is described in a paper published online Aug. 4 by the journal Nature Materials. In the last 30 years, there has been a tremendous amount of research studying nanocrystals – tiny crystals sized between one to 100 nanometers...

Professor’s lab brings first ALD systems to Vanderbilt

Apr. 2, 2013—Cary Pint’s lab – Nanomaterials and Energy Devices Laboratory in Olin Hall – is close to completion and it brings to Vanderbilt its first two atomic layer deposition (ALD) systems, relatively small tools that deposit atomically thin layers of material on virtually any surface. The lab also houses a host of tools for new carbon...
