The Center for Networks, Science and Applications (CNSA), led by Prof. Paul Prucnal, was recently recognized by the National Security Agency as a “Center of Excellence in Research in Information Assurance.”
Everything we do generates power — about 1 watt per breath, 70 watts per step. This year, Michael McAlpine of Princeton University and colleagues figured out how to turn locomotion into power by embedding piezoelectric crystals into a flexible, biocompatible rubberlike material that, when bent, allows the crystals to produce energy. Put the crystals in shoes, say, or implant them directly into the body and they could produce enough power to charge personal electronics or internal medical devic
U.S. President Barack Obama has named Princeton's Andrew Houck and Joshua Shaevitz as recipients of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the federal government on young professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers. Houck, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, and Shaevitz, an assistant professor of physics and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, are among 85 recipients who will
