For the past 10 years, the U.S. Air Force has funded research on high-performance materials at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source ( CHESS ). The partnership has resulted in numerous advances, including a greater understanding of metal fatigue and analysis of the best metals for aircraft. This partnership was extended with $8 million in funding to CHESS as part of the fiscal year 2019 defense appropriations bill, a $674.4 billion package that President Donald Trump signed into law Oct. 1. The bill passed both the U.S. Senate – supported by New York Sens. Charles Schumer, who is Senate...
Dream Big Way back around 1974 a talented high school football player in Durango, Colorado had a coach who convinced him to leave town and dream big.

Professor Avedisian is collaborating with Auburn University as it leads a $2 million DOE project to maximize U.S. fuel economy
Auburn University researchers are leading a $2 million U.S. Department of Energy project that promises to improve fuel efficiency and economy. The project will create a bio-based fuel additive that can be blended with diesel fuel to reduce soot and greenhouse gas emissions and yield cleaner engine operation in cold-weather conditions. Joining as collaborators in the research are Cornell University, the University of Alabama, Virginia Tech and corporate partners Microvi Biotech, Inc. and EcoEngineers. The project is one of 42 totaling $80 million awarded by the DOE to support advanced vehicles...
