This project constructs a high-performance multilayered Si
nanocomposite anode by revolutionary incorporating Li-rich
ferroelectric material (LiNbO3) to support energy storage systems
for human and machine interaction.
ZEAF integrates a photochemical responsive polymer sheet into
building façades through an origami inspired folding pattern
to efficiently control the heat gain, and thus enhance the building
This project develops an in-depth scientific understanding, as
well as an implementation of an innovative 3D graphene aerogel
printing technology based on rapid freezing for supercapacitor
Facilitating safer and more ergonomic integration of UAVs in
co-robotic work environments through collaboration with experts in
vibration/acoustics, design & optimization, and
This project allows us to better understand how current
co-robotic systems change fatigue in a worker population and to
design better intervention strategies for co-robots. Construction
Robotics is an industrial partner on this project.
Working with faculty, industry and community leaders, SMART is
using design, smart materials and automation to transform advanced
manufacturing in the region and across the country.
Industry executives and faculty from across UB work
with SMART Director Kemper Lewis on innovative ways to bring
customizable products to market faster, while remaining
ecologically and economically sustainable.
