Nature Magazine published Dr. Chang-Hwan Choi’s career, highlighting his recent Young Investigator Program award from the US Office of Naval Research.

7.       ONR Young Investigator Program Award, “2010 Young Investigators Announced”, April 5, 2010.

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) named Professor Chang-Hwan Choi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology as one of the 17 recipients as winners of its 2010 Young Investigator Program, which invests in academic scientists and engineers who show exceptional promise for creative study.

8.       DURIP Award, “Stevens Acquires Multi-Modal Physical Vapor Deposition System”, April 1, 2010.

Professor Chang-Hwan Choi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Stevens Institute of Technology has been granted funding for a state-of-the-art thin film deposition system as part of “Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP)” at the Office of Naval Research (ONR).

9.       Nature Research Highlights, “Fluid dynamics: Slip and slide”, Nature 454, 920 (21 August 2008).

A paper recently published by Prof. Chang-Hwan Choi and his colleagues at UCLA (Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 064501 (2008)) has also been selected as Research Highlights in Nature (Nature 454, 920). Prof. Chang-Hwan Choi and his colleagues created textured surfaces with micrometre-scale grooves and posts. On these, fluids can slip past friction-free for tiny distances, coasting on the pockets of air between the grooves or posts. They report a slip length for water almost ten times longer than previously achieved — long enough to show that engineered surfaces can significantly reduce drag in fluid systems including macroscale flows.

10.    Biomaterials, “Biomaterials 2007 - The Year in Images”, 2007.

An image from a paper by Prof. Chang-Hwan Choi and co-workers at UCLA (Biomaterials 28, 1672-1679 (2007)) was selected as one of 12 Images of the Year 2007 by the journal Biomaterials. The article describes the use of well-defined nanostructures on silicon surfaces to study how cells sense and respond to the three-dimensional nature of their environment. The selected figure shows a fluorescence microscopy image of an immunostained fibroblast cell grown on the three-dimensional sharp-tip nanostructures.
