A team of researchers from Washington University in St. Louis and Duke University has been award a prestigious National Science Foundation grant. The challenge: Push the boundaries of science to create new materials with a wide range of uses and applications.
For more than a decade, an engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has sought a better way for pulse design using the similarity between spins and springs by using numerical experiments.
During the past fiscal year, the Washington University in St. Louis Office of Technology Management reported a number of record figures as a result of the innovative technologies developed by university faculty.
In what could be a small step for science potentially leading to a breakthrough, an engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has taken steps toward using nanocrystal networks for artificial intelligence applications.
Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world. Billions of tons are produced annually. But for the 2017 Solar Decathlon, Team WashU wanted to demonstrate a new and more sustainable approach.
An engineering team at Washington University in St. Louis has made major strides recently in the study and manipulation of light. The team’s most recent discovery of the sensing capability of microresonators could have impacts in the creation of biomedical devices, electronics and biohazard detection devices.
A group of Washington University aerosol scientists, engineers and administrators traveled to Asia this summer to address some of the important problems related to energy, environment and health that we face today. Here, four engineering faculty share their takeaways.
After conducting a new research approach using actual commutes, a group of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis discovered a simple shift in driving habits can help to reduce exposure to pollutants while out on the road.
Sophisticated techniques for testing hypotheses about the brain by activating and silencing genes are currently available for only a handful of model organisms. Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis are working on a simplified toolkit that will allow scientists who study animal behavior to manipulate the genomes of many other animals with the hope of accelerating progress in our understanding of the brain.
Brett Teng Gao, an incoming senior at Washington University in St. Louis, recently was part of a team that won the Google-sponsored Artificial Intelligence Genomics Hackathon.
