Supercomputers Aid Discovery of New, Inexpensive Material to Make LEDs with Excellent Color Quality

University of California San Diego

Computers have helped researchers develop a new phosphor that can make LEDs cheaper and render colors more accurately. An international team led by engineers at UC San Diego first predicted the new phosphor using supercomputers and data mining algorithms, then developed a simple recipe to make it in the lab. Unlike many phosphors, this one is made of inexpensive, earth-abundant elements and can easily be made using industrial methods. As computers predicted, the new phosphor performed well in tests and in LED prototypes.

Why Bees Soared and Slime Flopped as Inspirations for Systems Engineering

Georgia Institute of Technology

Honeybee behavior inspired a web hosting algorithm that saved significant costs. Nature can serve as a wonderful model for engineering, but it can also flop. Take slime mold: As a model for connectivity, it falls flat in comparison with classical algorithms.

Hubble Sees Neptune's Mysterious Shrinking Storm

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Three billion miles away on the farthest known major planet in our solar system, an ominous, dark storm is shrinking out of existence as seen in pictures of Neptune taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Immense dark storms on Neptune were first discovered in the late 1980s by the Voyager 2 spacecraft. Since then, only Hubble has tracked these elusive features that play a game of peek-a-boo over the years.

Using Science and Humanities to Step Back in Time

University of California San Diego

A collaborative group of researchers from the University of California San Diego traveled to Turin, Italy recently to digitally map an entire portion of the city — complete with historic architecture, expansive murals and stunning works of art. Digital data will be used by students and researchers on campus to explore the site’s buildings and artifacts, ultimately recreating an interactive, virtual-reality experience.
