A computational materials scientist at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has received three major federal grants totaling $1.3 million to develop tougher glass that can safely immobilize nuclear waste, as well develop new types of glass, for practical uses, that would be more resistant to breaking and scratching.
UCLA bioengineers have demonstrated that a gel-like material containing tiny magnetic particles could be used to manage chronic pain from disease or injury.
With school officially in summer session, we caught up with a few of our students to find out what they are up to. From volunteering to internships, not surprisingly, many are spending time engineering change.
UCLA Samueli Professor Tim Fisher, a world leader in understanding how tiny entities like atoms and molecules transport energy and heat, has been named the inaugural holder of the John P. and Claudia H. Schauerman Endowed Chair in Engineering.
A team of UCLA electrical and computer engineers has created a physical artificial neural network — a device modeled on how the human brain works — that can analyze large volumes of data and identify objects at the actual speed of light.
Two UCLA computer scientists are part of a new multi-university microelectronics research center that aims to dramatically speed up computer performance by integrating data processing into memory and storage for future computer systems.
The heat is off: UCLA engineers develop world’s most efficient semiconductor material for thermal management
New material draws heat away from hotspots much faster than current materials, which could lead to dramatic improvements in computer chip performance and energy efficiency
Bioinformatics approach used to uncover the weed killer could also be used to find new drugs for medications. A garden can be a competitive environment. Plants and unseen microorganisms in the soil all need precious space to grow.
UCLA Connection Lab is inspired by Professor Leonard Kleinrock’s role as a founding father of the internet. A $5 million gift to the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering in honor of internet pioneer Leonard Kleinrock will establish a new center devoted to shaping the future of the internet and computer networking.
