AI implications: Engineer’s model lays groundwork for machine-learning device92910​In what could be a small step for science potentially leading to a breakthrough, an engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has taken steps toward using nanocrystal networks for artificial intelligence applications. 8/21/2017 4:14:24 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx185518550https://engineering.wustl.edu8/21/2017 4:14:24 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Groundbreaking coal research yields three additional research grants313175​Suppose the byproducts of coal-burning power plants could supply much-needed underground water to parched soil in arid parts of the world. Suppose they could contribute to secondary fuel sources for developing countries in dire need of transportation fuels. Now suppose this could be done while producing electricity with minimal emissions.8/15/2017 7:58:32 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx213821380https://engineering.wustl.edu8/15/2017 7:58:32 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
WashU engineers to study nanoparticles’ behavior in low-temperature plasma313863​Products from artificial joints to semiconductor circuits to plastic bags are made using the fourth state of matter, or plasma, which is an ionized gas. Plasma changes properties depending on its temperature, and when the temperature is low, the substance is strongly nonequilibrium, meaning it changes over time.8/18/2017 7:24:43 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx195719570https://engineering.wustl.edu8/18/2017 7:24:43 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Engineers work to fight pollution at home, globally256407So, what did you do this summer? Relaxation, trips to the beach or pool, and extra family time are probably near the top of most people’s to-do lists.Tackling one of the world’s most pressing problems? That’s a different summer goal altogether.8/11/2017 8:45:27 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx297829780https://engineering.wustl.edu8/11/2017 8:45:27 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Crank the AC, cut in-car pollution94315   ​For many, the commute to and from work is a lengthy, stressful process. According to the U.S.  Census Bureau, it takes the average American about 26½ minutes to get to work. That’s nearly an hour each day — to work and back — to face traffic snarls and congested highways. That commute can also be hazardous to your health, exposing drivers to an increased amount of air pollutants that have been linked to a whole host of medical maladies, including cardiovascular disease, respiratory issues and even lung cancer.8/21/2017 4:51:26 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx364336430https://engineering.wustl.edu8/21/2017 4:51:26 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Test uses nanotechnology to quickly diagnose Zika virus254193​Washington University in St. Louis researchers have developed a test that quickly detects the presence of Zika virus in blood.8/17/2017 9:34:58 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx347534750https://engineering.wustl.edu8/17/2017 9:34:58 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Agonafer to hold nanotechnology workshop for area high school students92241​Damena Agonafer, assistant professor of mechanical engineering & materials science, has received a one-year, $50,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to host a workshop for St. Louis-area high school students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields.8/9/2017 8:01:05 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx366836680https://engineering.wustl.edu8/9/2017 8:01:05 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
Study in Nature: Engineers find better way to detect nanoparticles93851​It’s long been thought that two’s company and three’s a crowd. But electrical and systems engineers at Washington University in St. Louis and their collaborators have shown that the addition of a third nanoscatterer, complementing two “tuning” nanoscatterers, to a photonics resonator makes for a fascinating physics party.8/17/2017 3:37:49 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx451845180https://engineering.wustl.edu8/17/2017 3:37:49 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
