  • UW research team uses sound waves to move ‘excitons’ further than ever before, leading toward faster and more energy efficient electronics and optical devices

    A research team led by UW Electrical & Computer Engineering and UW physics professor Mo Li has developed a method of using soundwaves to move excitons farther than previously thought possible. This allows them to be used to create transistors, switches, and transducers — leading to faster and more energy-efficient computing and optical devices.

    Team detects first neutrinos made by particle collider

    An international team of scientists has for the first time detected neutrinos created by a particle collider. The discovery — announced March 19 by the Forward Search Experiment, or FASER collaboration — promises to deepen scientists’ understanding of the nature of neutrinos, which are the most abundant particle in the cosmos. FASER’s detector picked up neutrinos generated by the Large Hadron Collider, which is based at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.
