The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $2.43 million grant to Princeton engineer Michael McAlpine, to investigate new ways to interweave electronic and biological materials to ultimately produce bionic organs for a range of scientific and biomedical applications.
Using a new nanoscale structure, the researchers, led by electrical engineering professor Stephen Chou, increased the brightness and efficiency of LEDs made of organic materials (flexible carbon-based sheets) by 57 percent.
The 363 engineering students represent 28 percent of the incoming class of 2018, and engineering students across all four years make up about 25 percent of the undergraduate enrollment.
The team's findings are part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about atomic behavior by creating a device that can simulate the behavior of subatomic particles. Such a tool could be an invaluable method for answering questions about atoms and molecules that are not answerable even with today's most advanced computers.
Subhash Khot, who earned a Ph.D. from Princeton’s Department of Computer Science in 2003, has won the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize, awarded every four years for outstanding contributions in mathematical aspects of information sciences.
Seven student teams presented their business ideas at the Keller Center's annual Demo Day Aug. 11 and 12, the culmination of the center's eLab summer accelerator program.
Princeton University researchers have developed a way to use a laser to measure people's blood sugar, and, with more work to shrink the laser system to a portable size, the technique could allow diabetics to check their condition without pricking themselves to draw blood.
Leaders from industry and academia met at Princeton University to discuss three big questions surrounding the broad theme of "water": infrastructure, the water/energy nexus, and industrial water.
Inspired by anomalies that arise in certain mathematical equations, researchers have demonstrated a laser system that paradoxically turns off when more power is added rather than becoming continuously brighter.
Presenting awards at the Princeton Engineering's 2014 Class Day, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Affairs Peter Bogucki repeatedly noted student work that had surpassed professors' highest expectations.
Solar electricity installations and other distributed sources of electric power present increasingly pressing questions for public utilities, regulators and consumers, according to organizers of a recent roundtable meeting co-sponsored by Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership.
A virtual campus tour, an app for visualizing your web-browsing history and a tool for working with texts in Latin were among 42 projects students presented at the conclusion of computer science course described by some as "must-take."
IEEE, the top professional society in electrical engineering, awarded its Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology to Stephen Chou, Princeton University's Joseph C. Elgin Professor of Engineering.
Big Data continues to transform the way we live and work, altering the relationships between government, citizens, businesses and consumers. But does it come at a cost?
Two Princeton Engineering faculty members were elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors in all fields of science
