The power of perovskite

( Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University) OIST researchers improve perovskite-based technology in the entire energy cycle, from solar cells harnessing power to LED diodes to light the screens of future electronic devices and other lighting applications.

Lasers used to detect risk of heart attack and stroke

( University of Warwick) Patients at risk of heart attacks and strokes may be spotted earlier thanks to a diagnosis tool that uses near-infrared light to identify high-risk arterial plaques, according to research carried out at WMG, University of Warwick, the Baker Institute and Monash University.

Global corporations, startups begin testing at Washington open-access clean energy facility

( University of Washington) Global corporations, US solar companies, and Washington startups have signed up to test their cleantech at the Washington Clean Energy Testbeds, created by the University of Washington (UW) Clean Energy Institute (CEI), during the facility's first six months of operation.

Under the redwoods, UC Santa Cruz fights kids' cancer using computers

( University of California - Santa Cruz) The City of Santa Cruz Economic Development Office recently sat down with Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative Founder Olena Morozova and UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute Scientific Director David Haussler to learn more about how UC Santa Cruz is working to better understand and better treat cancer in children -- all without the benefit of a medical school.

UC Santa Cruz genomics undergrad awarded prestigious NIH research scholarship

( University of California - Santa Cruz) UC Santa Cruz junior and Genomics Institute scholar Stefanie Brizuela has been selected by the Scientific Review Committee of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Undergraduate Scholarship Program (UGSP) as a UGSP Scholar. Brizuela will receive a scholarship for qualified educational and living expenses up to $20,000 for the 2017-2018 academic year. She is currently an undergraduate researcher, working with Dr. Angela Brooks, Assistant Professor in Biomolecular Engineering in the Baskin School of Engineering.

Spoiler alert: Computer simulations provide preview of upcoming eclipse

( University of Texas at Austin) A research team from Predictive Science Inc. (PSI) used the Stampede2 supercomputer at The University of Texas at Austin's Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) to forecast the corona of the sun during the upcoming eclipse. The findings shed light on what the eclipse of the sun might look like Aug. 21 when it will be visible across much of the US, tracing a 70-mile-wide band across 14 states.

Agroindustrial waste can be used as material for housing and infrastructure

( Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) Converting waste into resources, substituting toxic raw materials for healthy inputs, migrating from harmful to sustainable production processes. These are some of the guidelines for a research project about agroindustrial wastes and their potential use as appropriate materials for housing and infrastructure.

Journalists successfully used secure computing to expose Panama Papers, researchers say

( Clemson University) A team of researchers from Clemson University, Columbia University and the University of Washington has discovered a security success in an unlikely place: the 'Panama Papers.' "Success stories in computer security are rare,'" said Franzi Roesner, assistant professor at the University of Washington and one of the principal investigators on this project. "But we discovered that the journalists involved in the Panama Papers project seem to have achieved their security goals."

AI implications: Engineer's model lays groundwork for machine-learning device

( Washington University in St. Louis) 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.
