UC San Diego engineers have developed the thinnest optical device in the world: a waveguide that is three layers of atoms thin. The work is a proof of concept for scaling down optical devices to sizes that are orders of magnitude smaller than today’s devices.
UC San Diego engineers have developed a soft robotic lens whose movements are controlled by the eyes—blink twice and the lens zooms in and out; look left, right, up or down and the lens will follow. The lens is the first example of an interface between humans and soft machines.
UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering professor Olivia Graeve has been selected by the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities as a fellow in its inaugural Presidential Leadership Academy, designed to increase Hispanic representation in top leadership positions in higher education.
The NSF has awarded SDSC a two-year grant worth almost $400,000 to deploy a new system called CC* Compute: Triton Stratus as an enhancement to the existing Triton Shared Computing Cluster (TSCC) campus High-Performance Computing (HPC) platform.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has been awarded a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) worth $10 million to deploy Expanse, a new supercomputer designed to advance research that is increasingly dependent upon heterogeneous and distributed resources.
New partnership joins university's data science hub with leading communications firm collaborating on establishing educational and research connections as well as increased opportunities for students
The University of California San Diego ranked 4th among public research universities in the United States in this year’s annual ranking of high-quality scientific research papers by the journal Nature.
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.
Two UC San Diego undergraduate students were named Donald A. Strauss Foundation Public Service Scholars, and were awarded a $15,000 prize to pursue their social change and public service projects.
Nanoengineers at UC San Diego have developed new deep learning models that can accurately predict the properties of molecules and crystals. They can enable researchers to rapidly scan the nearly-infinite universe of compounds to discover potentially transformative materials for various applications.
