Treatment Process for Reduced Corrosion in CFRP/Metal Hybrids

­ Executive Summary Carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites (CFRPs) are often mechanically fastened to metals such as aluminum alloys in lightweight aircraft applications. Since both materials are electrically conductive, galvanic corrosion of the less noble metal can occur, leading to degradation over time. MSU researchers have developed...

Exhaled Breath Analyzer for Lung Transplant Monitoring

Executive SummaryLung transplantation is a therapeutic option for patients suffering from the end stage of various lung diseases. Monitoring for signs of rejection is an invasive process that requires biopsies of a small portion of the lung. A new MSU technology allows for the monitoring of lung transplant rejection through biomarkers in the patient’s...
