Process could be useful for applications in manufacturing and architecture
UCLA mechanical engineers and materials scientists have developed a process that uses nanoparticles to strengthen the atomic structure of glass. The result is a product that’s at least five times tougher than any glass currently available.
Q&A with Jonathan Stewart about what his team learned in the aftermath of the Ridgecrest quakes
A day after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake on July 4 rattled Southern California, a small team of earthquake engineers and scientists was already near its epicenter, in Ridgecrest, Calif., gathering time-sensitive data.
UCLA-developed terahertz sensors work at room temperature, unlike current technology that needs extreme cold
Researchers at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering have developed an ultra-sensitive light-detecting system that could enable astronomers to view galaxies, stars and planetary systems in superb detail.read more
