In preliminary experiments, we demonstrated photophoretic levitation and propulsion of macroscopic (millimeter-scale) plates—thousands of times larger than ever before realized...
Plate Mechanical Metamaterials
Prof. Bargatin's group has pioneered new types of mechanical metamaterials that form robust plates out of ultrathin films....
Thermionic Energy Generation
With his collaborators, Prof. Bargatin's group has been developing MEMS-based prototypes of heat-to-electricity and solar-to-electricity energy converters...
