Dr. Theresa Freeman is our new Scientist of the Week!

Have you ever been stuck wearing a cast because you broke your arm or leg? I bet you wished for a speedy recovery, as casts can be very uncomfortable! Plasma to the rescue! Studies show how plasma might be able to solve this problem by promoting cell growth and improving bone formation (https://ryortho.com/breaking/cold-plasma-leads-to-increased-bone-formation/). Our new Scientist of the week, Dr. Theresa Freeman has performed extensive research in the field… Read more →

Cristina Canal’s Interview to The Science and Engineering Cafe

Happy New Year! I wish you all a very happy, healthy year with lots of breakthroughs in the field of Plasma Science. Plasmas have been studied for over a century and have been successfully applied for the development of nanomaterials and thin coatings, inactivation of harmful bacteria, etching of materials, just to name a few. Dr. Cristina Canal, our featured… Read more →

Dr. Cristina Canal is our New Scientist of the Week

It’s been quite a fun and successful year here at The Science and Engineering Café and I can’t think of a better way to end the year than featuring Dr. Cristina Canal from the Technical University of Catalonia, Spain. Cristina is a very enthusiastic plasma scientist who is focusing on the development of novel biomaterials via plasma engineering. A few months ago, I had the chance… Read more →

Thierry Belmonte Interview

“A well-rounded scientist”, this is the sentence that describes how I felt when I read Thierry Belmonte’s answers for the interview that he provided to The Science and Engineering Café. Thierry talks about keeping an open mind in expanding knowledge, the French plasma community and his latest work. I am very excited about his new work on additive manufacturing of nanometer-sized metal structures! Thierry-… Read more →

Dr. Thierry Belmonte is our new Scientist of the Week!

I am very excited to announce our new Scientist of the Week, Dr. Thierry Belmonte! While I have only recently met him, I have closely followed his work in the field of plasma nanoscience over the past several years. I had the opportunity to meet him in person last month at the iplasmanano conference in Athens, Greece and enjoyed hearing more about his most recent… Read more →
