Team uses machine learning to predict the properties of simulated carbon nanotube arrays

Image of nanotube forest micropillars. The research team is now growing carbon nanotubes in the Advanced Nanostructures Lab. Image captured by Ramakrishna Surya a PhD student in mechanical and aerospace engineering. Carbon nanotubes have the potential to provide lightweight, flexible materials that could revolutionize the world. In their perfect form, these molecules — which are [...]
Meet Shubhra Gangopadhyay

Meet Shubhra Gangopadhyay

Sometimes, before you can think big, you have to think small. After all, you can’t tackle the big problems without interacting with the microscopic molecules, electrons and atoms that make up our world. Meet Shubhra Gangopadhyay, professor, researcher and inventor of teeny-tiny technologies. Gangopadhyay has built a career around detecting and interacting with nanoparticles. Today, [...]
The End of Moore’s Law

The End of Moore’s Law

As our electronic devices continue to grow in power and shrink in size, the semiconductor industry has been challenged to increase the number of transistors per unit. For 50 years, the industry has basically observed Moore’s Law, named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore. He observed in 1965 that the number of transistors per silicon chip […]

An RNAmazing research breakthrough

An RNAmazing research breakthrough

Understanding ribonucleic acid (RNA) and its chemical properties and biological mechanisms is a key area of focus in health research. RNA is critical in the processing and movement of genetic information and gene expression. The way RNA folds into various tertiary structures determines its biological function, and being able to dissect and alter that process […]
