The chip-free device senses and wirelessly transmits signals related to pulse, sweat and ultraviolet exposure, without bulky chips or batteries.
MIT physicists have established twisted graphene as a new “family” of robust superconductors stacked at precise angles.
MIT researchers have developed a general-purpose optimizer that can speed up the design of walking robots, self-driving vehicles, and other autonomous systems.
MIT researchers have developed an artificial intelligence chip that is stackable and reconfigurable, for swapping out and building on existing sensors and neural network processors.
MIT researchers have design a heat engine with no moving parts, which could help enable a fully decarbonized power grid in the future.
Researchers have found direct evidence of electron correlations in a two-dimensional material called ABC trilayer graphene.
MIT physicists have detected a hybrid particle that is a mashup of an electron and a phonon, which could lead to smaller, faster electronic devices.
Engineers at MIT and Shanghai Jiao Tong University have designed a soft, lightweight, and potentially low-cost neuroprosthetic hand that has better dexterity and could be useful for amputees and other robotic applications. See video.
Aerospace engineers at MIT have devised an algorithm that helps drones fly around obstacles without crashing, which could help in search-and-rescue missions and other applications that use drones in time-sensitive situations. See video.
Engineers at MIT, Caltech, and ETH Zürich find “nanoarchitected” materials designed from precisely patterned nanoscale structures could be a basis for lighter, tougher alternatives to Kevlar and steel.
