UCSB professor and director of the Institute for Terahertz Science and Technology Mark Sherwin and his research group recently demonstrated how the recollision of electrons produced multiple frequencies of light using high- and low-frequency lasers. Electron-holes are created by simultaneously aiming both low- and high-frequency laser beams at gallium arsenide [...]

Potential advances in MRI technology on the nanoscale as well as in the field of quantum computing are closer to being realized, according to a recent UCSB study. UCSB assistant physics professor Ania Jayich co-authored a study unveiling the recent progress made in MRI science. Currently, MRI systems for medical [...]
Astrophysicists affiliated with UCSB and the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network have recently begun researching 170-year-old Eta Carinae, a behemoth double-star system that erupted over a century ago. Frederica Bianco, a postdoctoral researcher at UCSB, and Andy Howell, a staff scientist at LCOGT, used the LCOGT’s Faulkes Telescope South [...]
UCSB chemistry and biochemistry professor Norbert Reich and his team of researchers have recently discovered a molecular pathway that may explain the way acute myeloid leukemia develops. AML is a cancer that occurs inside the bone marrow and destroys healthy blood cells. Eventually, patients become more susceptible to infections and [...]
Researchers at UCSB have helped create a new method to increase wireless transmission speeds in data centers by up to 30 percent. Scientists discovered that metal plates placed on the ceiling of data centers better transmit signals from directional antennas, thereby increasing the efficiency and speed of wireless communication. Although [...]
