NSF awards $208,868 grant to department chair Dahotre

10_Dahotre%2C%20Narendra_StudioHead_MatSThe National Science Foundation has awarded a $208,868 grant to Narendra Dahotre, right, chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, for a project that will seek to alter the microstructure of metallic glasses so that they can be used in commercial applications.

The objective of three-year research project is to develop a new class of metallic glasses by increasing its strength and energy efficiency using laser-based technology. Possible uses include replacing steel cores used in electric transformers with the metallic glasses for higher efficiencies.

The project is a collaborative effort with Sandip Harimkar, assistant professor in the
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Oklahoma State University. Harimkar received separate funding of $188,521.

Dahotre joined UNT in January 2010 after teaching materials science and engineering at the University of Tennessee for 15 years. He has nearly 30 years of experience in laser science and engineering.

Dahotre’s research in the field of laser surface engineering has been compiled into four book chapters, two books, 15 U.S. patents and more than 200 technical papers.
