20 under 30: Engineering change

At Rice, Gabe Baker ‘14 majored in engineering and played football and cello. Now he uses his skills to serve the community.

Rice University engineers have developed a method to transfer complete, flexible, two-dimensional circuits from their fabrication platforms to curved and other smooth surfaces. Such circuits are able to couple with near-field electromagnetic waves and offer next-generation sensing for optical fibers and other applications. (Credit: Zehua Jin/Rice University)

Form-fitting, nanoscale sensors now make sense

Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface.

Fine-tuning renewables could help Texas balance energy resources

Daniel Cohan and junior Joanna Slusarewicz show increasing importance of wind, solar to state's power production.
