History Channel to Feature CALCE Research

On March 22 at 10 p.m., the History Channel will air "Modern Marvels: Engineering Disasters," an episode that will feature interviews with staff and footage of the labs of the Clark School's Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE).

The segment will take a look at microscopic structures called "tin whiskers" that spontaneously grow from the pure tin coatings on electronic boards and microchips. These whiskers can wreak havoc within the electronics industry and have affected systems such as the Galaxy satellites.

The show will feature the research that CALCE is conducting on this phenomenon.
