Discovery sheds new light on 175-year-old principle
Autonomous robots can learn and perform complex actions via observation
Researchers at the University of Maryland have invented a single tiny structure that includes all the components of a battery that they say could bring about the ultimate miniaturization of energy storage components.
The University of Maryland unveiled Deepthought2, one of the nation's fastest university-owned supercomputers, on May 14 to support advanced research activities ranging from studying the formation of the first galaxies to simulating fire and combustion for fire protection advancements. Developed with high-performance computing solutions from Dell, Deepthought2 has a processing speed of about 300 teraflops.
Researchers at the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have been awarded a research program contract from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to sequence, assemble, and annotate a population of bacterial pathogens using two high-throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies in support of the expansion of a vetted public reference database.
Physicists propose a modular quantum computer architecture that offers scalability to large numbers of qubits.
What’s so ‘super’ about this superfluid.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland have shown how to make nanoscale measurements of critical properties of plasmonic nanomaterials—the specially engineered nanostructures that modify the interaction of light and matter for a variety of applications, including sensors, cloaking (invisibility), photovoltaics and therapeutics.
On top of financial cutbacks from the state and federal agencies, many universities face growing public skepticism about the value of funding universities.
