The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $18 million to nine teams of engineering-led, interdisciplinary researchers to break the conventional ways in which light and acoustic waves propagate. Funded through NSF's Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation (EFRI) program, the teams -- comprising 37 researchers at 17 institutions -- will pursue transformative research in the area of new light and acoustic wave propagation, known as NewLAW, over the next four years.

Rutgers engineers, in a breakthrough, create a soft motor that could power versatile soft robots A small, squishy vehicle equipped with soft wheels rolls over rough terrain and runs under water. Future versions of the versatile vehicle might be suitable for search and rescue missions after disasters, deep space and planet exploration, and manipulating objects during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), according to its creators at Rutgers University.

Shishir Chundawat, assistant professor of chemical and biochemical engineering in the School of Engineering, has won a Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award from the Oak Ridge Associated Universities. He is the third Rutgers faculty member to win this prestigious honor, instituted in 2008. It provides a $5,000 grant from ORAU, which the university will match.
