Science News features paper by ChemE professor, grad student

A paper recently published by ChemE professor Manoj Chaudhury, Franklin Howes Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering, and his graduate student, Partho Goohpattader, has been featured in two major science news publications - AlphaGalileo and Science News.

Chaudhury’s findings could have implications for the removal of water droplets from super-hydrophobic surfaces, such as plant leaves, and show potential to lead to better adhesion of rubber tires on roads as well as in the use of fluids, instead of electronics, to perform a digital operation. Additionally, new MicroElectroMechanical systems (MEMs), based on robotic fingers capable of displacing a small object, could be assisted by noise.

Chaudhury has been part of Lehigh’s ChemE department since 1994.
