The CEID was bustling with activity this summer, as teams of engineering students developed innovative devices to combat real-world problems. One such invention was Acantha, a one-handed catheter delivery system developed by Yale engineering students Brandon Hudik and Andres Ornelas Vargas. This duo is continuing their work beyond their eight-week fellowship at the CEID and plan to scale up the development of their product.
Quantum technologies could unlock entirely new ways to view the world — but only if scientists can create stable methods of manipulating qubits. Researchers from the Yale Quantum Institute have integrated classical and quantum technologies to create scalable quantum information chips, heralding a paradigm shift for the field.
We enjoy seeing robots in many places, from film to the classroom, but you likely would rather not see a robot at your place of employment, working in your stead. With rising concern that robots may come to replace human workers, it is time to address this problem from all angles.
Batteries are found in everything from cell phones to cars, quietly powering our everyday existence. With rising pressures to find more renewable sources of energy, batteries hold immense potential to do even more — for example, to store the excess
A new model that predicts the properties of nanocellulose composites could lead to improved nanotechnology for all.
“When is a strawberry dead?” This quirky question is one of many that have sparked debates on BBC Radio 4’s science-meets-entertainment podcast, “The Infinite Monkey Cage.” It is indicative of the show’s character — nonsensical musings intertwined with a surprising
Scientists learn lessons from nature’s greenery, modeling the next generation of solar technology on plant cells.
A study led by André Taylor, associate professor of chemical and environmental engineering at Yale, presents a new method of creating transparent lithium-ion batteries. The development brings science closer than ever before to the realization of invisible electronics.
A research team at the University of Exeter has developed a new way to produce graphene that could allow for the creation of electronic skin.
Throw a potpourri of transistors into the bathtub, add some soap, and out comes a fully formed nanocomputer. Science fiction? Maybe not. Nanoscientists dream of coaxing electronic components to self-assemble into complex systems. In fact, researchers at the University of Copenhagen have taken a major step towards making self-assembling electronics a reality.
