MRover crowned champions of the University Rover Challenge
  1. MRover crowned champions of the University Rover Challenge

    From autonomously navigating rocky terrain to testing soil for signs of life, the Michigan Mars Rover team bested their competition and took first place at the international competition.

  2. Toward manufacturing semitransparent solar cells the size of windows

    A peel-off patterning technique could enable more fragile organic semiconductors to be manufactured into semitransparent solar panels at scale.

  3. Task Force report on grid stability concepts receives IEEE PES Prize Paper Award

    The rapid growth of renewable energy led to an international task force to study its impact on the stability of worldwide power systems.

  4. Solar-powered chemistry uses carbon dioxide and water to make feedstock for fuels, chemicals

    Producing synthesis gas, a precursor of a variety of fuels and chemicals, no longer requires natural gas, coal or biomass.

  5. Machine learning begins to understand the human gut

    The new computer model accurately predicts the behavior of millions of microbial communities from hundreds of experiments, an advance toward precision medicine.

  6. 2022 IEEE APS R. W. P. King Award recognizes new theory in computational electromagnetics

    Patel and Michielssen developed the Wigner-Smith time delay matrix for electromagnetics.

  7. Emulating impossible “unipolar” laser pulses paves the way for processing quantum information

    Quantum materials emit light as though it were only a positive pulse, rather than a positive-negative oscillation.

  8. Overcoming the efficiency cliff of red micro-LEDs for virtual/augmented reality

    Prof. Zetian Mi leads a team that created highly-efficient red micro LEDs suitable for augmented and virtual reality.

  9. Atkins chairs National Academies report on speeding discovery with automated research workflows

    Prof. Emeritus Daniel Atkins III chaired and Prof. Al Hero served on a National Academies committee that published a new report describing the impact of artificial intelligence and automated research workflow technologies in propelling research and scientific discovery.

  10. Designing large neural codes for the next generation of communication systems

    PhD candidate Mohammad Vahid Jamali won a Best Paper award at IEEE ICC for his work on Product AutoEncoders, which could help shape future generations of wireless networks, IoT, and autonomous systems.
