Cutting-edge Powder Metallurgy Research and Innovation
The powder metallurgy research group seeks to advance the fundamental understanding
and technology of advanced metallic inorganic materials based on powders or manufactured from powders.
In December 2017, the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) elected Zhigang Zak Fang as a 2017 fellow. Fang, a professor of metallurgical engineering in the College of Mines and Earth Sciences, was an obvious choice; he has over 50 issued patents, several more pending and multiple new projects in the works. Fang embodies the spirit of NAI, an organization that honors academics who have facilitated exceptional inventions that impact society. He joins 12 other U faculty with NAI fellowships.
