Drexel’s Gogotsi Questions Accuracy of Performance Measures of Energy Storage Systems in Latest Issue of Science
PHILADELPHIA (November 29, 2011) — Solving the mystery of prematurely dead cell phone and laptop batteries may prove to be a vital step toward creating a sustainable energy grid according to Drexel researcher Dr. Yury Gogotsi. In a piece published in the November 18 edition of Science, Gogotsi, who is the head of the A.J. Drexel Nanotechnology Institute, calls for a new, standardized gauge of performance measurement for energy storage devices that are as small as those used in cell phones to as large as those used in the national energy grid.

Grantees 2008-2011 : Publication of the book Computational Surgery and Dual Training, Springer, 2010
The partnership between University of Houston and University of Strasbourg (PUF Grantees 2008-2011) led to the publication of the book Computational Surgery and Dual Training (Marc Garbey, Barbara Lee Bass, Christophe de Mathelin, Roger Tran-Son-Tay), Springer, 2010. The goal of this book is to provide the background on and examples of computational and training in that emerging field. This project started with the workshop “Computational Surgery and Dual Training” that was organized in Strasbourg, France, in December 2008, which brought together a group of computer scientists, engineers, and surgeons to discuss interventional procedures and surgeries.
