The event is being held exactly a half century after a team led by UCLA professor Leonard Kleinrock sent the first message over the Arpanet — the precursor to today’s internet.
A version of the technology, set up on the roof of a home, could provide enough power overnight to charge a cell phone or to light a room with LED bulbs.
UCLA engineering professor Ximin He said the design could be adapted to use other forms of energy — acoustic waves, or electronic or magnetic signals, for example.
The advance could lead to more reliable analytical tools for biochemical laboratories and environmental monitoring.
The new process creates a material that’s at least five times tougher than any glass currently available.
Q&A with professor Jonathan Stewart about what the team he organized learned in the aftermath of the Ridgecrest earthquakes.
The UCLA-developed sensors work at room temperature, unlike current technology that needs extreme cold.
UCLA researchers have developed a much faster and more accurate method to evaluate the formation of a bacterial community, known as a microbiome.
UCLA researchers and colleagues have designed a first-of-its-kind nanogenerator that can work in remote areas because it provides its own power and does not need batteries. It also acts as a weather station.
The engineers and mathematicians have designed a unique and effective system that could be used to produce clean, fresh water, or to recycle industrial water that would otherwise be wasted.
The donation from alumna Stacey Nicholas create a permanent funding source for WE@UCLA, which was founded in 2017.
A Q&A with Danijela Cabric of the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering on the legendary actress’s less-known role as inventor of a frequency hopping technology.
Researchers create ultra-lightweight ceramic material that can better withstand extreme temperatures
The aerogel stood up to sudden and extreme temperature spikes between minus 198 degrees Celsius and 900 degrees above zero over just a few seconds.
UCLA researchers already are working with a bicycle manufacturer on prototype frames that would use the alloy.
To help the new system “learn” more like people do, the engineers immersed it in an internet replica of the real world.
Artificial intelligence-based device detects moving parasites in bodily fluid for easier, earlier diagnosis
“The platform is like a motion detector for the microscopic world because of its ability to lock onto any moving objects in a fluid sample,” said Yibo Zhang, a UCLA doctoral student and the study’s first author.
In a lab test, half of the mice that received the treatment after having a tumor removed survived for at least 60 days without the tumor regrowing.
The researchers are already discussing the new device with marine biologists to determine where it would be most useful.
UCLA roboticist Dennis Hong and his robot magician, MAGI, shine on the Netflix show “Magic for Humans.”
In tests at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the device converted 22.4 percent of the incoming energy from the sun, a record for that type of cell.
The advance could revolutionize thermal management designs for computer processors and other electronics.
The researchers demonstrated that the device could accurately identify handwritten numbers and items of clothing — both commonly used tests in AI studies.
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.
