Wan Kuang, an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was quoted in a recent story in the Idaho Business Review focused on new scientific instruments being used at Idaho universities. Included was a $610,000 super-fast burst, high-intensity laser aimed at testing and developing nanomaterials. The laser, purchased with stimulus funds, will help test structures made of nanoparticle-infused strands of DNA that could someday be used in electronic devices, like cell phones and televisions. Kuang noted that the laser enhances Boise State’s research capabilities and its status as an emerging research institution.
