UC San Diego mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate student Tao Wang recently demonstrated how an extremely strong magnetic field, similar to that on the surface of a neutron star, can be not only generated but also detected using an x-ray laser inside a solid material.
According to a release issued in April by Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), a serendipitous discovery by graduate student Dylan T. Christiansen has led to materials that quickly change color from completely clear to a range of vibrant hues – and back again.
University of California and Princeton scientists have been collaborating on a computational astrophysics project to learn more about the recent discovery of a black hole which sits in the middle of a galaxy called Messier 87 (M87), approximately 55 million light years from Earth.
Using the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego, campus researchers have demonstrated they can efficiently analyze more than 1,000 EEG 128-channel high-density data sets via the new Open EEGLAB Portal running on SDSC’s Neuroscience Gateway.
Researchers from the University of Michigan relied on supercomputers at UC San Diego and elsewhere to help them develop detailed models to better understand how TB spreads throughout the lungs.
A new paper by UC San Diego researchers hypothesizes a possible link between cancer-causing viruses.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has been working with researchers at SDSC as well as other parts of UC San Diego to determine the location of existing Liberian schools so they can provide them with resources and work with policy makers to plan future schools.
