Cutting-edge research lifts university

Abstract:
In a small steel laboratory off a winding dirt road about a mile from Tuskegee University's main campus, Orion Gebremedhin mixes a fine chalk white powder with copper-colored liquid in a glass beaker.

As Gebremedhin continues to stir, the mixture turns into a milky gel that resembles glue. Gebremedhin later takes his beaker of nano or surface structured particles -- compounds that hold and strengthen parts on structures such as planes, tanks and automobiles -- to a heating station so that it later can be poured into a mold.
