2008-2009 Senior Design Team Wins First Place in the 2009 10th annual OSU Engineering Expo!!
For their project entitled, "Piezoelectric Nanowires," the team of Ashley Mason, Adam Stone, and Todd Waggoner, won first place in the ECE section of the 10th Annual OSU Engineering Expo. The project involved growing and characterizing ZnO nanowires grown in solution on low temperature substrates such as Kevlar, mechanical actuation of ZnO nanowire coated Kevlar strands, and devleopment of a circuit to measure very low levels of current. The project was mentored by Prof. John Conley as well as Derryl Allman and David Price from ON Semiconductor and also received support from HP, Corvallis. The project will continue as an ONR/ONAMI funded research project in Dr. Conley's lab.
