Dr. Likun Zhu's Lab

Welcome to the website of Dr. Likun Zhu’s Group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. This site will help you find the latest information about the progress in our research, ongoing interdisciplinary projects, and group members. The research in Dr. Likun Zhu’s group spans a range of microscale and nanoscale technologies including modeling and characterization of lithium ion batteries based on micro and nano computed tomography technologies, new fabrication technologies for hierarchical micro/nano structures, self-pumping and self-regulating microfluidic gas generation systems, and microfluidic devices for circulating tumor cell isolation. We address fundamental scientific questions and strive to develop new technologies for problems important to modern societal needs.

We are a member laboratory of the Richard G. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy and the Integrated Nanosystems Development Institute (INDI) at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. The micro/nano fabrication is performed using the facilities at INDI, in the Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University, and in the MNMS Cleanroom at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Thank you for visiting our website. We appreciate the opportunities to collaborate with you in research. We encourage you to contact us whether you are interested in our research or any potential opportunities for graduate studies.
