SoE Faculty Receives Rutgers' First TechAdvance Award

Materials science and engineering research associate Jennifer Lynch-Branzoi was selected as the first recipient of the Rutgers’ TechAdvance Fund. She was awarded a $100,000 grant for her project on barrier resistance in Graphene Enhanced Polymer Matrix Composites (G-PMCs).

Lynch-Branzoi will investigate the permeation of small gases through G-PMCs, which potentially offer a lightweight replacement for fuel tanks and packaging applications with longer shelf lives.

Good Vibrations: Smart Access to Homes and Cars Using Fingers

Rutgers engineers create VibWrite, a finger vibration-based security system

"Good, good, good, good vibrations” goes the catchy Beach Boys song, a big hit in 1966 and beyond.

Now Rutgers engineers have created VibWrite, a smart access system that senses finger vibrations to verify users. The low-cost security system could eventually be used to gain access to homes, apartment buildings, cars, appliances – anything with a solid surface.
