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
