Superconducting wires conduct electricity perfectly — without any energy losses — because
Objective: A precise absolute magnetometer based on organic spintronics that is scalable to micron dimensions, has low cost and that is not adversely affected by environmental influences (temperature, air etc.).
Objective: To develop and characterize new plasmonic metamaterials in the terahertz (THz) spectral range.
Approach: Explore unconventional materials that are typically not suitable for plasmonics applications at optical frequencies but exhibit reasonable conductivities at THz frequencies.
Objective: To study the dynamics of magneto-resistance in organic diodes
Approach: Measure electronic transport and magneto-transport of organic diodes as a function of frequency with an applied magnetic field using admittance spectroscopy
MRSEC outreach activities coordinate with Utah Core Curriculum Standards. These sixth-graders are studying the properties of light in their classroom.
The Adelante program seeks to increase the expectation of university attendance and success among Hispanic students at Jackson Elementary.
