Prof. Arges & ChE Senior Juan Rubio Publish Paper in Solid-State Ionics

Professor Arges and Juan Rubio, an LSU undergraduate senior in Chemical Engineering, recently published a paper in Solid-State Ionics on topographically patterned anion exchange membranes for microbial desalination. Juan was the 2nd author on the paper and the lead contributor from LSU. The paper, in collaboration with researchers with University of New Mexico, illustrates that membranes with low electrical resistance improves the power output of the microbial fuel cell while co-currently enhancing the desalination rate.
