The three federal awards boost funding for fuel cell and hydrogen technologies research at Mines, reflecting growing support in the U.S. for their potential to provide sustainable domestic energy with net zero emissions.
The CoorsTek Research Fellowship has brought 19 extraordinary PhD candidates to Colorado School of Mines since CoorsTek and the Coors family established it in 2014.
Terry Lowe, research professor in metallurgical and materials engineering at Colorado School of Mines, was awarded the 2023 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Medal from the University of California
If humans are going to establish a long-term presence on the Moon, they’ll need resources – and more than just water and oxygen. They’ll need metals, minerals and other materials sourced not only from Earth but also the lunar surface itself.
Funded by a National Science Foundation grant, a group of local high school teachers spend part of their summer break getting hands-on training in additive manufacturing.
At Mines, teams of researchers are working on the hydrogen problem — from developing electrolyzers to separate hydrogen from other energy sources to developing and testing the ceramic materials in fuel cells and making them commercially viable and cost-effective.
By Ashley Spurgeon, Special to Mines Research Magazine Electrolysis plays a significant role in sourcing hydrogen for use in fuel cells and other energy technologies. But the ceramic materials used in
By Jasmine Leonas, Special to Mines Research Magazine Fusion, the process that powers the sun and the stars, has long been a part of the conversation about low-carbon sources of electricity. Unlike
Chemistry's Svitlana Pylypenko is looking for answers to questions of cost, durability and performance at the microscopic — and even nano — scale.
Fueled by Mines’ materials science program, the goal of the Institute for Data-Driven Dynamical Design (ID4) is to harness the power of advanced computation and artificial intelligence to accelerate discovery in material science
