Lawrence Kulinsky has received a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to pursue the study of fabrication techniques offering scalable mass production of three dimensional micro-electrodes. Mr. Kulinsky is a project scientist in the Samulei School’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
The three-year funding will support the project that aims for an integrated research plan to study, characterize, and model the newly developed Dielectrophoretic Electropolymerization (DEP EP) process for scalable manufacturing technology.
Graduate and undergraduate students of UCI will be involved in the project as well as community college students from Saddleback College and Mt. St. Antonio College. Additionally, outreach activities include close mentoring of one middle school and one high school science teachers from public schools with predominantly underrepresented minority student populations from the Los Angeles Unified School District.
