Optical switching at record speeds opens door for ultrafast, light-based electronics and computers
Imagine a home computer operating 1 million times faster than the most expensive hardware on the market. Now, imagine that being the industry standard. Researchers hope to pave the way for that reality.
3D radar scan provides clues about threats to iconic Alaskan glacier
Mapping a large coastal glacier in Alaska revealed that its bulk sits below sea level and is undercut by channels, making it vulnerable to accelerated melting in an already deteriorating coastal habitat.
Engineers lead $1.2M project to 3D-print parts for hypersonic vehicles
When engineers 3D-print metal objects, they use metals originally developed for conventional manufacturing. It works, but not as well as it could. Two UArizona experts are using a new suite of equipment to develop alloys optimized for both 3D printing and hypersonic flight.
