Ana Constantin joins Facebook after three years of undergraduate and professional experience at the Washington Nanofabrication Facility.
In quantum computing, UW scientists see the building blocks of the next technological revolution.
A UW team led by Karl Böhringer and Arka Majumdar has developed a tunable lens made of metasurfaces and actuated by microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
A UW research team led by associate professor Mo Li has developed an optical computing system that could contribute toward speeding up AI and machine learning while reducing associated energy and environmental costs.
UW Bioengineering faculty pivot diagnostics research to support the need for COVID-19 testing. The Lutz and Yager labs have developed prototypes that deliver results in less than 30 minutes, and the groups have also assembled 35,000 tests for the Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network at the NanoES building.
The University of Washington Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, and Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering seek outstanding candidates with expertise in quantum information science and technology to apply for new full-time faculty positions.
Earlier this year, UW scientists announced a nanoparticle-based drug delivery system that can ferry a potent anti-cancer drug through the bloodstream safely. The nanoparticle is derived from chitin, a natural and organic polymer that makes up the outer shells of shrimp.
Some of the most ambitious goals in physics and materials research are to make ordinary-sounding objects with extraordinary properties: wires that can transport power without any energy loss, or quantum computers that can perform complex calculations that today’s computers cannot achieve. And the emerging workbenches for the experiments that gradually move us toward these goals are 2D materials — sheets of material that are a single layer of atoms thick.
