James Smay, Ph.D., an associate professor of materials science and engineering at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, is part
           of a national research team that is revolutionizing the 3-D printing of glass – a promising first step that could improve the
           performance of lasers, microscopes and telescopes.

           OSU Research Matters Magazine 2017
As society becomes more reliant on electronic devices such as cellphones, laptops and tablets, OSU researchers are looking
           to develop batteries that are more powerful, safer, longer lasting and lightweight.

OSU researchers are developing a radiation-shielding material that could be used in the construction of habitats on the moon or Mars.

OSU Vanguard Magazine 2014
Dr. Jami Fullerton examines how advertising and other globalized media affect international relations through the concept of nation branding.

OSU Vanguard Magazine 2013
Williams Companies Distinguished Chair in Energy Technology Raj Singh will lead the new school, which will provide educational training opportunities for master’s and doctoral degrees in materials science and engineering. Materials science focuses on the structure, properties and performance of such materials as metals, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers, composites and biomaterials.

OSU Vanguard Magazine 2012
Dr. Raman P. Singh is leading a research team of two graduate students to develop methods to recycle discarded carpet into a composite that can be molded and used to replace less durable or more expensive construction and manufacturing materials.

OSU Vanguard Magazine 2011
Dr. Reza Abdolvand and his colleague, Dr. Daryoosh Vashaee, are working with a team of four graduate students to design, fabricate and test nano-engineered infrared sensors that can be used for multiple applications and devices, such as night vision goggles, medical diagnostics and thermal imagers for search and rescue missions.

OSU Vanguard Magazine 2010
With funding from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the National Science Foundation, OSU-Tulsa researcher Dr. Daryoosh Vashaee  is developing nanotechnology that can convert waste heat to energy. His process to produce a clean, alternative energy source could significantly reduce the use of fossil fuels and help move the United States toward energy independence.

OSU Vanguard Magazine 2009
Dr. Amanda Morris, associate professor of human development and family science at OSU-Tulsa, is giving youth the knowledge and skills they need to resolve conflicts in a nonviolent manner. Working with about 60 families from two Boys and Girls Clubs of Tulsa, Morris and her team are evaluating several factors before and after participation in a conflict resolution intervention program.
