Dr. Chang-Hwan Choi honored with prestigious Young Investigator Award
Date:4/8/2010

Professor Chang-Hwan Choi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology was named as a recipient of the 2010 Young Investigator Program (YIP) award by the Office of Naval Research (ONR). YIP invests in academic scientists and engineers who show exceptional promise for creative study.

"We are proud of this group of young outstanding scientists and engineers," said ONR's Director of Research Dr. Michael Kassner. "Through their great work in the science and engineering fields, the recipients have raised the bar for excellence in research."

Research Highlight

Dr. Choi was selected by the ONR thanks in large part to his efforts in efficient anti-corrosion surfaces that can enhance the durability and functionality of the U.S. Navy's aluminum based vessels.

His research entitled, "Nano-Engineering of Superhydrophobic Surfaces for Light Metal Anti-Corrosion," explores a new and more efficient corrosion protection mechanism based on nano-engineering of surface superhydrophobicity for light metals.

"The understanding and engineering of the optimal surface nano-topography and chemistry for robust de-wetting stability and anti-corrosion functionality can make superhydrophobic surfaces effective and practical solutions for many naval applications. In addition to an anti-corrosive capability, nano-engineered superhydrophobic surfaces that minimize the water contact with the surface equipped with optimized de-wetting stability can provide additional benefit for anti-biofouling and hydrodynamic drag reduction, offering truly energy-efficient multi-functional applicability for naval systems. Beyond naval applications, the multi-functional superhydrophobic surface materials engineered with greater robustness and durability will have a potential to influence a broader spectrum of technology issues from energy to civil infrastructure to medical devices." - Dr. Chang-Hwan Choi
