The UCLA Connection Lab, to be led by Leonard Kleinrock, will foster interdisciplinary research on a range of technologies, such as blockchain, computer networks, big data and artificial intelligence.
Robert and Dorothy Webb met when they were UCLA students in the 1950s. Their giving to the campus spans four decades.
A research team led by a UCLA bioengineer has created a model to predict the effectiveness of potential treatments to help the immune system.
The device, designed by UCLA Engineering researchers, operates across a broad range of light, processes images more quickly and is more sensitive to low levels of light than current models.
Tiny defects in semiconductors created ‘speed bumps’ for electrons. UCLA researchers cleared the path
Their method joins a semiconductor layer and a metal electrode layer without the atomic-level defects that typically occur as part of the process commonly used now.
The process analyzes several possible risk scenarios to help doctors more thoroughly assess people who could be candidates for heart transplants.
“Tissues are wonderfully complex structures, so to engineer artificial versions of them that function properly, we have to recreate their complexity,” said UCLA professor Ali Khademhosseini.
The advance could help bring high-quality medical diagnostics into resource-poor regions, where people otherwise do not have access to high-end technology.
Working to upend one of the most stalwart of construction materials, a team of UCLA researchers created a near carbon dioxide-neutral version of concrete.
Hundreds of alumni and friends recently toured the new building, which is the sixth in the engineering school’s complex.
UCLA undergraduates in the Rocket Project have become science and engineering ambassadors at Los Angeles-area schools.
These “superlattices” could lead to improved and new classes of electronics, from transistors to LEDs.
The advance shows great promise for helping the body’s immune system seek out and destroy cancer cells.
In experiments the device produced 30 percent better capacitance — the measure of a device’s ability to store an electric charge — for its mass compared to the best available electrode made from similar materials.
Hong shares what it was like to run a leg in the torch relay for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the future of robot athletics.
Device that measures cell strength could help identify drugs for asthma, hypertension and muscular dystrophy
“This technology is a game-changer for us drug discovery scientists,” said Robert Damoiseaux, a UCLA professor of molecular and medical pharmacology.
UCLA professor Lihua Jin’s work in soft materials engineering is helping pave the way for these kinds of advances.
The new technique sheds light on the materials the artist used, and the order in which they were applied to the painting. It also helped scientists uncover insights about the painting’s connections to other work from the same era.
As electronic devices have become smaller, using silicon components to power them has become more challenging; a team of faculty and students has developed a promising solution.
The new technique produces better images than current methods, and it’s easier to implement because it requires fewer measurements and performs computations faster.
Researchers designed a new device that uses solar power to inexpensively and efficiently create and store energy and create hydrogen fuel.
In a clinical trial, a UCLA-led team used a biomaterial embedded with tiny gems to help tissue heal after the procedure.
The energy-efficient system uses a thin polymer film that transfers heat from the heat source to a “heat sink.”
The new type of catalysis became apparent as the researchers were studying a substance with insecticidal properties that is naturally produced by fungi.
The system is made of inexpensive components, including an image sensor chip that costs just a few dollars apiece and is like the ones used in mobile phone cameras.
