Wu Bakar Price

“A few years ago, Junqiao Wu, a UC Berkeley professor of material science and engineering, figured out how he could use thermal power to transform materials: roofs that adapt to temperatures and save energy, new types of sunglasses and even tools that could screen for cancer or monitor hidden defects in buildings. But turning those laboratory discoveries into real-world tools is almost a harder problem”. Read full Berkeley news story here.
