"Particle Substrate", MIT Research Art Night

True color micrographs show fields of polymer nanoparticles left by a drying droplet (center) leaving a thin reddish monolayer with white mounds as the edge of the drop recedes in stick-slip motion towards the upper right, jumping across the surface. 

(side bar) The droplet also can leave very smooth layers that may later crack as the fluid dries.

Text: In article number 2100245, Crystal E. Owens, Gareth H. McKinley, A. John Hart and co-workers present a direct-write printing process controlled by two parameters to extrude aqueous carbon nanotube (CNT) solutions with liquid crystalline behavior, drawing highly conductive and flexible traces, sensors, and circuits with integrated circuit elements onto a variety of flexible substrates. The high CNT concentration and lack of fillers allow high final conductivity. More details on the research.

Logo design for MIT's Mechanical Engineering Research Exhibition (MERE)

This logo shows MIT MechE's 7 areas of research focus. MechE is known as "Course 2" within the school. 

Display image design for paper on mechanics of aging foam [link]

This image graphic assembles timelapse photographs of coarsening foam. As the average bubble size increases, the foam strength decreases. Measurements are made by a vane with a fractal cross-section, shown in the center of the "clock".
