An Innovative Way to Educate Students About Circadian Biology

November 30, 2017

…sub-disciplines in the biological sciences. But when Susan Golden was named a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) professor in 2014, she launched the UC San Diego BioClock Studio to promote and educate students about circadian biology. Golden, a Chancellor’s Associates Chair of molecular biology and director of UC San Diego’s…

Copperizing the Complexity of Superconductivity

January 26, 2021

New study suggests that how electrons interact in solids may be key to understanding the emerging phases of quantum materials.

Spiking Nano-oscillators Provide New Insight into Quantum Materials and Advanced Computing

December 18, 2023

Synchronicity has not been studied extensively in spiking oscillators, despite their potential for use in advanced materials and neuromorphic computing. UC San Diego scientists have discovered that when nano-oscillators made from vanadium dioxide spike, they exhibit a unique kind of synchronicity.

Supercomputing Our Way to Better Materials

May 22, 2014

…Our Way to Better Materials Shyue Ping Ong Impatience drives the materials science research of Shyue Ping Ong. The professor of nanoengineering says the world cannot afford to wait for a slow trial and error approach to discover new materials that could be used to build more energy-efficient technologies. The…

Supercomputers Aid Discovery of New, Inexpensive Material to Make LEDs with Excellent Color Quality

February 19, 2018

Computers have helped researchers develop a new phosphor that can make LEDs cheaper and render colors more accurately. An international team led by engineers at UC San Diego first predicted the new phosphor using supercomputers and data mining algorithms, then developed a simple recipe to make it in the lab.…

Crystals Ripple in Response to Light

…crystal, they report in the early online edition of Science March 7.

SDSC Assists in Generating Clean Tech Breakthrough

May 7, 2013

…of South Florida (USF) and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have discovered a more efficient, less expensive, and reusable material for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and separation than is currently used to prevent the greenhouse gas from entering the atmosphere.

Breakthrough with Quantum Materials Pushes Biologically Inspired Learning Devices

April 14, 2021

UC San Diego physicists have created new artificial devices that mimic basic learning functions carried out by neurons in the human brain. They demonstrated how quantum materials could be used to develop new devices that can “learn” to switch between functional states.

New Nano Materials Inspired by Bird Feathers Play with Light to Create Color

May 13, 2015

Inspired by the way iridescent bird feathers play with light, scientists have created thin films of material in a wide range of pure colors — from red to green — with hues determined by physical structure rather than pigments.

Biodegradable ‘Living Plastic’ Houses Bacterial Spores That Help It Break Down

April 30, 2024

A new type of bioplastic could help reduce the plastic industry’s environmental footprint. Researchers have developed a biodegradable form of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) filled with bacterial spores that, when exposed to nutrients present in compost, germinate and break down the material at the end of its life cycle.
