DATA, DECISIONS AND CONTROL

Quantum Manufacturing
Researchers in quantum manufacturing investigate the fundamental science driving quantum interactions. Deeper understanding of these phenomena will enable material, device, and manufacturing innovation for a new generation of information technology.

Machine Learning and Optimization
Researchers in computational science are focused on streamlining machine learning in ways that enable computers to learn complex concepts efficiently and accurately, but on a larger scale and at a faster rate than humans are capable of.

Sensors and Sensing
From health monitoring and smart homes to smart cities and power grids, the uses for sensing technologies are endless. Our research is aimed at advancing the operation, measurement capabilities and implementation of sensors.

    NSF CAREER Award will help Thompson build a better calorimeter

    In nanoscale devices—such as the nanometer-sized transistors that make up computer microprocessors—tiny heat currents can have a big effect on those devices’ performance. To measure heat currents, researchers use a technique called calorimetry. Due to …

  • Photoreceptors grown from stem cells pack into a new ice cube tray-shaped scaffold to guide their development and implantation in patients’ eyes. 

    Micro-molded ‘ice cube tray’ scaffold is next step in returning sight to injured retina

    Tens of millions of people worldwide are affected by diseases like macular degeneration or have had accidents that permanently damage the light-sensitive photoreceptors within their retinas that enable vision. The human body is not capable …
