Partnership Advances Gas Turbine Materials Technology
Drs. Maurice Gell and Eric Jordan, partnering with HiFunda LLC of Salt Lake City, received a DOE Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase II grant totaling $1 million (UConn portion: $387k). The award supports advances in a new Solution Precursor Plasma Spray process invented by Drs. Gell and Jordan, for making ceramic thermal barrier coatings used in gas turbine engines.
