Mizzou Engineering Professor Shubhra Gangopadhyay and her research team have won an industry award for combining nanotechnology with microchip–based technology to generate powerful shock waves and energy.
Nanotech Briefs magazine, a three–year–old monthly digital publication for nanotechnology researchers, has selected the Mizzou team’s work as one of the year’s top 50 technologies or innovations in the nanotechnology field. Gangopadhyay, an electrical and computer engineering faculty member, will officially receive the “Nano 50” award during a Nov. 14–15 nanotechology conference in Boston, Mass

“This is fantastic recognition for you and for nanoscience at MU,” said Jim Coleman, MU’s vice chancellor for research.

The Gangopadhyay team’s invention of a nanotechnology process for creating shock waves that can be integrated with microchip technology has broad potential defense, commercial and medical applications.

Energy generated by the process may initiate explosions or create electrical power, Gangopadhyay said. In the medical field, the process’ shock waves may be used to increase the effectiveness of anti–cancer drugs and help deliver other medicines as well, she said.
