2014tenure.jpgTop to bottom: Buonassisi, Fang, and Wang.The MIT School of Engineering announced on May 13 that eight of its faculty had been granted tenure by MIT. Among the eight are three MTL core faculty members: Professors Tonio Buonassisi, Nicholas Xuanlai Fang, and Evelyn Wang.

Tonio Buonassisi utilizes defect-engineering techniques across the entire solar-cell process, from crystal growth to modules, to improve the cost-effectiveness of solar cells;

Nicholas Xuanlai Fang concentrates on creating devices using electromagnetic and acoustic metamaterials with extraordinary properties, and on the development of advanced micro- and nanofabrication technologies;

Evelyn Wang combines the fundamental study of micro- and nanoscale heat and mass transport processes with the development of novel nanostructured materials to produce innovative solutions to thermal management, thermal energy storage, solar thermal energy conversion, and water desalination.

Congratulations to our newly tenured core faculty members!
