Two UW Faculty Members Receive DOE Grants to Research Alloys, Quantum Computer Materials

Dilpuneet Singh Aidhy is studying high entropy alloys that are potential materials for large structural applications, while Jifa Tian is researching a solution to create materials and understand the fundamental physics for future quantum computers that can process problems classic computers cannot.

Both University of Wyoming faculty members’ research projects received a boost earlier this month. Their projects are two of 31 for which the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) granted $21 million in total Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) funding.  Aidhy will collaborate with Ames Laboratory and use its complementing techniques to advance scientific understanding. Aidhy’s grant is for $375,000 over three years and will fund two graduate students and one undergraduate student, he says.  Read More
