Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Teng Li was recently granted the Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award. Li is one of only two Maryland faculty nominated by the University to compete for this award in 2007. Last year ME faculty Miao Yu was granted this award.

The Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award provides seed money for research by junior faculty at Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) member institutions. These awards are intended to enrich the research and professional growth of young faculty and result in new funding opportunities.

Li plans to use the funds to support his research to explore innovative structural concepts to enhance the deformability of electronic materials (e.g., metals, dielectrics and semiconductors), and based upon such concepts design novel architectures for flexible electronic devices with exceptional deformability and reliability. Flexible electronics is an emerging technology with an exciting array of applications, ranging from paper-like displays, skin-like smart prosthesis, to printable solar cells, which can be used to address the essential societal need for easy access to information, revolutionary concept for therapy, renewable energy, and a sustainable environment.

Congratulations to Professor Li for the award and unique research efforts.
