|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Fri 1:00 PM 09/27|
Dick Partch will relate what goes on inside a typical printing/copy machine, from mechanics to what toner is and how it is processed. He has been a chemistry professor at Clarkson for 54 years, and this year he was awarded Emeritus status and named a Xerox Faculty Fellow. His focus has been on making colloidal particles, now often referred to as nanoparticles, having composition, size, shape and surface properties for improved practical applications, including printing.
Silvana Andrescu will discuss how 3D-Printing works and how she uses it to make her now-commercial sensors for detecting toxins and medicines, etc. Silvana is the Egon Matijevic Chair in Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science at Clarkson University, and the Interim Co-Director of Clarkson’s Center for Advanced Materials Processing. Her research activities focus on the development of functional materials and devices for diagnostics, therapeutics, bioelectronics, environmental, and energy-related applications.
