2005-2006 Financial Summary

Front row, from left: Zhichao Duan, Yong Yang and Michael Miller. Back row, from left: Xiaochun Li, Mike DeCicco, Rod Lakes and Sindo Kou.

Funded by a four-year, $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation, an interdisciplinary team is testing whether ultrasonic cavitation—a process in which countless tiny bubbles grow within a liquid and then burst forcefully inward—could help mix nano-sized bits of ceramic within molten magnesium for casting. The team includes (front row, from left) graduate students Zhichao Duan, Yong Yang and Michael Miller, and (back row, from left) Mechanical Engineering Associate Professor Xiaochun Li, graduate student Mike DeCicco, and Wisconsin Distinguished Professor of Engineering Physics Rod Lakes and Materials Science Program Professor Sindo Kou.
