Next-gen battery solutions

A new mathematical model has brought together the physics and chemistry of highly promising lithium-metal batteries, providing researchers with plausible, fresh solutions to a problem known to cause degradation and failure.

Pollution and crops

New analysis shows crop yields could increase by about 25% in China and up to 10% in other parts of the world if emissions of a common air pollutant decreased by about half.

Building smarter

Analysis presents a first-of-its-kind framework to design the most efficient mix of urban buildings along with integrated systems to supply power and water services. The approach could significantly reduce costs and pollution compared to traditional systems.

Smartphone cameras that see in 3D

With a simple design and some clever engineering, researchers devised a high-frequency, low-power, compact optical device that allows virtually any digital camera to perceive depth.

Time crystal in a quantum computer

A team of researchers including ones from Stanford and Google have created and observed a new phase of matter, popularly known as a time crystal.

A simpler design for quantum computers

Graduate student Ben Bartlett and Shanhui Fan, professor of electrical engineering, have proposed a relatively simple quantum computer design that uses a single atom to manipulate photons and could be constructed with currently available components.

New model points to solution to global blood shortage

A mathematical model of the body’s interacting physiological and biochemical processes shows that it may be more effective to replace red blood cell transfusion with transfusion of other fluids that are far less in demand.

AI system identifies buildings damaged by wildfire

A deep learning approach to classifying buildings with wildfire damage may help responders focus their recovery efforts and offer more immediate information to displaced residents.
