UC San Diego scientists have created new brain maps with unprecedented detail. The insights provided by the new maps are helping answer questions about blood supply and how more active parts of the brain are kept nourished versus less demanding areas.
UC San Diego physicists are discovering details about the fundamental properties of exotic particles known as excitons. Their findings include pinpointing a visual phenomenon tied to a new state of matter as well as the first confirmation of exciton superfluidity.
Four faculty members from UC San Diego have been awarded 2021 Sloan Research Fellowships, awards designed to support “extraordinary” early career researchers.
Researchers from MIT have succeeded in developing an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to detect electron correlation – the interaction between a system’s electrons – which is vital but expensive to calculate in quantum chemistry.
Thanks to NSF-funded supercomputers including Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, the research community has been making progress on developing more reliable and efficient batteries that may power tomorrow's electric vehicles and other products.
New study suggests that how electrons interact in solids may be key to understanding the emerging phases of quantum materials.
Based on the precise measurements reported in this study, researchers hypothesized what mixtures of bulk ingredients could give the TRAPPIST-1 planets their densities, offering the most precise picture of exoplanet composition achieved to date.
As mandates prevented gatherings over the holiday season, crowds in Chile and Argentina donned masks and eye shields to view some a two-minute solar eclipse on December 14. A week before, researchers at PSI used SDSC's Expanse supercomputer to see how closely they could simulate the event.
UC San Diego chemistry researchers find that the smallest fresh sea spray particles become 100,000 times more acidic than the ocean within two minutes.
Simulations conducted using the Comet supercomputer at UC San Diego's San Diego Supercomputer Center provide new insights on how chloride corrodes structural metals, causing severe economic and environmental impacts.
