UCLA Samueli Faculty Expertise Directory
The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering Faculty Expertise Directory provides information on the research specialties of the school’s ladder faculty members with permanent appointments, as well as contact information, indices of major research areas and major cross-disciplinary research areas by faculty member, and listings for the school’s externally funded centers of excellence.
A research team led by UCLA scientists and engineers has developed a method to make new kinds of artificial “superlattices” — materials comprised of alternating layers of ultra-thin “two-dimensional” sheets, which are only one or a few atoms thick. Unlike current state-of-the art superlattices, in which
Capped by emotional speeches from the Alumnus of the Year and the Lifetime Contribution Award honoree, the 2018 UCLA Engineering Awards Dinner honored the very best of the school’s alumni, students and faculty on March 3.
UCLA engineers and scientists have engineered a type of synthetic protein — a chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR, that responds to soluble protein targets. The advance shows great promise for helping the body’s immune system seek out and destroy cancer because it could
Yongjie Hu, an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, has received a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation, the agency’s highest honor for faculty members at the start of their research and teaching careers.
Mechanical engineers from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science and four other institutions have designed a super-efficient and long-lasting electrode for supercapacitors.
