Houston experienced a mayor tropical storm after hurricane Harvey hit the coast of Texas. Several Houstonian homes were affected, and people needed to be evacuated. As a safe action, Rice University remained closed for over a week. Fortunately, only minor … Continue reading
Elisabeth Bianco and Dayne Swearer were selected as American delegates to the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany this June. They are two of 400 students selected worldwide to be part of this prestigious conference.
Sadegh Yazdi and Prof Ringe collaborated with groups from Rice University, the Chinese academy of Sciences, and Tianjin University to investigate single-atomic ruthenium catalytic sites on nitrogen-doped graphene for oxygen reduction reaction in acidic medium. Find more about the article here.
Matt decided to join the group for the summer! He is going to be involved in the nanoparticle synthesis projects led by Lauren and Sarah. Welcome Matt!
The Ringe Group received a brand new optical table! An inverted confocal microscope equipped with a spectrometer and a CCD will be placed in there, where optical spectroscopy will be carried on by the group.
The department of Materials Science and NanoEngineering, organizes a safety lab contest each year. This is a competition between MSNE labs, and the lab with the least number of violations will win a pizza party at the end of the semester. … Continue reading
The Ringe Group visited the Houston lighthouse and presented science modules. The group was very excited and motivated, since the modules helped explain new scientific modules commonly explained by visual means to people with visual disabilities. There were 6 modules: Eduardo Villarreal presented … Continue reading
