Did you know most pilots detect ice growing on an airplane wing visually? There’s gotta be a better way. And there is! Ryan and co-authors’ work on detecting ice underneath anti-icing coatings is now published! Another exciting collaborator with Dr. Zarifi’s group, combining surface science and surface sensing for excellent engineering.
