New Asian Case Method for Tribology: A structured approach for increased problem solving competence in tribology education and research
Tribology - Materials, Surfaces and Interfaces 7(2), pp. 69-73, 2013
The gap between academic science/engineering and industry concerning problem solving competencies is addressed in this paper by proposing the New Asian Case Method, an approach…Continue
Focusing on detailed understanding of basic underlying principles of nanostructures that lead to structural colours (as opposed to pigment colours) in biological systems and the subsequent development of a fast, cheap and simple production method for such colours. Samples: butterfly wings with amazingly colourful scales made from nanostructures, peacock feathers structural colours (photonic crystals), moth eyes with antireflective surfaces, diatoms (glass making algae) with naturally…Continue
