Tiny Particles Inspire Big Ideas At SDSMT Lab
There’s a lab in Rapid City where nanoparticles, the tiniest bits of matter, are used to create new materials.
Since its inception eight years ago, the Composites and Polymer Engineering Laboratory, or CAPE Lab, has grown a large infrastructure of machinery, equipment, and instrumentation. This allows scientists to do everything from molecular manipulation of materials to industrial manufacture of products to lab and field testing.
For today’s Dakota Digest, SDPB’s Victoria Wicks tours the lab to learn more about nanoscale investigation and its potential to create a different world.
