How does technological change affect human labor and employment? Periods of rapid technological change—like the present—bring that question to the center of public debate. The Thomas Edison Papers project, a research and publication center at Rutgers, would like to create an online exhibition that will explore that question through the life and work of Edison. Using materials from the vast Edison archive and other historical sources, the exhibit will ask how Edison, the preeminent inventor and (...)

Over the five decades between the 1962 coastal storm and Hurricane Sandy, vacation home communities of the Jersey Shore experienced a great deal of development, mostly with relatively modest homes on small lots. These homes were in many cases owned by households of relatively modest means. In recent decades, market forces appear to have resulted in greatly escalating land values, relative to the value of the property improvements (the homes). This research project poses the hypothesis that high (...)

The 3D metal additive manufacturing processes such as Laser Powder Bed Fusion requires measurement and characterization of process signatures in layer-to-layer, stripe-to-stripe, and tract-to track fusion of powder metal material with geometric parameters (width, length and overlap), identifying pores and defects from images and image streams obtained using digital optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy or focus variation microscopy techniques and digital image correlation which is an (...)

This project will require precision machining of metallic constructs in advanced alloys such as titanium and nickel-based alloys that are fabricated using 3D additive manufacturing methods. The additive manufacturing of metal parts provides new opportunities to freely design of parts and products which enhances the productivity. In contrast to this manufacturing process, the surface quality of laser fused parts is limiting the application of such technology on precision manufacturing. This project (...)

Nanoparticles will be synthesized using pulsed-laser decomposition of a target foil immersed in a precursor solution. Interaction between the focused laser beam and the target generates a submerged-plasma, where ablation of the target, along with decomposition of the liquid precursor, combine to produce doped nanoparticles upon quenching by the surrounding un-reacted liquid precursor. The as-synthesized nanoparticles will be annealed and characterized by various techniques.
