They also have the opportunity to network and develop connections that will serve them further down the road, while earning resume entries that make them stronger candidates for jobs after graduation.


UCLA researchers develop a new class of two-dimensional materials

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
