A $2.5 million grant will fund 13 research projects across the sciences, social sciences and humanities for novel investigations ranging from quantum computing to foreign policy development and from heritage forensics to effects of climate change.
From monitoring blood pressure to potholes: Professor Max Zhang's Internet of Things (IoT) course teaches students how to leverage IoT sensor technology to solve real-world problems and help the community.
Researchers in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering are incorporating elements of physics, circuit design, photonics, systems architecture, information theory and other fields to make quantum devices both practical and scalable.
Eun-Ah Kim, professor of physics, and Google researchers report the first demonstration of two-dimensional particles, called non-Abelian anyons, that are the key ingredient for realizing topological quantum computing, a promising method of introducing fault resistance to quantum computing.
A new method for analyzing protein crystals – developed by Cornell researchers and given a funky two-part name – could open up applications for new drug discovery and other areas of biotechnology and biochemistry.
Two Cornell faculty members have been named Freeman Hrabowski Scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, in recognition of their potential to become leaders in their research fields and to create diverse and inclusive lab environments.
