Making higher-energy light to fight cancer
Researchers use nontoxic silicon nanocrystals to convert low-energy photons into high-energy ones, bringing scientists closer to developing photodynamic treatments for cancer
Associate Professor Lorenzo Mangolini’s results published in Nano Letters
Prof. Mangolini’s most recent results on the development of novel battery materials have been published in Nano Letters. Precise control of processing parameters allows growing a highly graphitic shell around silicon particles. This stabilizes the performance of the material during charge-discharge cycling, all while being considerably simpler than other competing techniques. Giorgio Nava and Joseph Schwan, a Postdoc and a Ph.D. student in Mechanical Engineering respectively, have led the study. This work was performed in collaboration with the McDowell group at Georgia Tech, which performed
Professor Fabio Pasqualetti receives ARO and NSF award to study the brain as a network
Professor Fabio Pasqualetti has received awards from the Army Research Office (ARO) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to model, analyze, and control dynamic processes arising in the human brain. The award from ARO, titled “Analysis and Control of Phase-Amplitude Cluster Synchronization in Structural Brain Networks”, seeks to understand how neural synchronization enables transfer of information across brain regions, and how structural aberrations due to injury and disease can prevent healthy behavior. The award from NSF, titled “Analysis, prediction, and control of synchronized neural

UCR's fluid dynamics research groups attended 12th annual Southern California Flow Physics Symposium (SoCal Fluids) at USC earlier this month. This was a great opportunity to present their exciting and diverse work, which included ice floes tracking in the North pole, collective motion of organisms in the ocean, wildfires, bubbles and more! . . . . . . #california #research #meatucr#ucrhiglander #ucr #lifeatucr #collegelife #iamanengineer #stem #engineering#science
