Many thanks to Isabel Kalnin, Christian Grimme and Christopher Kuo-Leblanc made significant contributions to the research in our group, way more than expected to be done, only in 10 weeks! We are sad that they are leaving, but we hope that they come back. Also thanks to our graduate students Jizhe, Jamshid, Yijun and Kai who stood along their side and mentored them.
- Isabel pushed the limits in developing hollow carbon nanfibers with wall thickness of ~10-20 nm,
- Christopher developed a variation of melt electrospinning to develop low micron and submicron polymeric fibers,
- Christian made an in-house setup capable of mass producing single threads of PAN nanofibers with a very narrow diameter distribution.
