Quantum material is promising 'ion conductor' for research, new technologies

( Purdue University) Researchers have shown how to shuttle lithium ions back and forth into the crystal structure of a quantum material, representing a new avenue for research and potential applications in batteries, 'smart windows' and brain-inspired computers containing artificial synapses.

Low bandwidth? Use more colors at once

( Purdue University) As researchers engineer solutions for eventually replacing electronics with photonics, a Purdue University-led team has simplified the manufacturing process that allows utilizing multiple colors at the same time on an electronic chip instead of a single color at a time.

RIT awarded NSF grant to advance high-tech computer architectures

( Rochester Institute of Technology) Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology will use photonic integrated circuit technology to improve the processing speed and energy consumption of brain-inspired computing techniques. The university received $422,733 from the National Science Foundation for "PIC: Hybrid Silicon Electronic Photonic Integrated Neuromorphic Networks," a multiyear project to advance neuromorphic computing using photonic circuits.

Protecting the power grid: Advanced plasma switch for more efficient transmission

( DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) Article describes PPPL research to help General Electric design an advanced and cost-effective power switch to protect the US electric grid.

Study: Human wastewater valuable to global agriculture, economics

( University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) It may seem off-putting to some, but human waste is full of nutrients that can be recycled into valuable products that could promote agricultural sustainability and better economic independence for some developing countries, says a new study by University of Illinois researchers.

Novel sensors could enable smarter textiles

( University of Delaware) A fabric coating with thin, lightweight and flexible pressure sensors that can be embedded into shoes and other functional garments, sensors that can measure everything from the light touch of a finger to being driven over by a forklift. And it's comfortable to boot!

Fellowships recognize tomorrow's supercomputing innovators

( Association for Computing Machinery) ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, announced today that Linda Gesenhues of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and Markus Höhnerbach of RWTH Aachen University are the recipients of the 2018 ACM-IEEE CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowships. Gesenhues is being recognized for her work on finite element simulation of turbidity currents with an emphasis on non-Newtonian fluids. Höhnerbach is being recognized for his work on portable optimizations of complex molecular dynamics codes.

What Paris shows us about the history of photography

( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) In a new book, MIT Prof. Catherine Clark takes a deep look at history told through photographs of Paris itself -- as a way of understanding how photography's influence on our historical imaginations has changed since its 19th-century origins.

Life Biosciences funds MDI Biological Laboratory aging course

( Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory) The MDI Biological Laboratory has announced that Life Biosciences, a biotech company co-founded by David Sinclair, Ph.D., a leading researcher on aging and age-related diseases, has contributed $100,000 to fund its biomedical innovation course on aging. The intensive, two-week course attracted graduate and post-doctoral students from around the globe to the coast of Maine to study the latest advances in the biology of aging with the leaders in the field.

Trailblazer in computational complexity theory to receive Knuth Priize

( Association for Computing Machinery) The 2018 Donald E. Knuth Prize will be awarded to Johan Torkel Håstad of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) for his long and sustained record of milestone breakthroughs at the foundations of computer science, with major impact on many areas including optimization, cryptography, parallel computing, and complexity theory.
