Vertical, full-color microscopic LEDs developed
MIT researchers have found that stacking light-emitting diodes (LEDs) instead of placing them side by side could enable fully immersive VR displays.
Superconductivity switches on and off in magic-angle graphene
MIT physicists have found a new way to switch superconductivity on and off with magic-angle graphene by using a short electric pulse.
Atom-thin materials grown on industrial wafers
MIT researchers have developed a technique that could allow chip manufacturers to produce next-generation transistors based on materials other than silicon.
Engineers fabricate a chip-free, wireless electronic skin
The chip-free device senses and wirelessly transmits signals related to pulse, sweat and ultraviolet exposure, without bulky chips or batteries.
Superconducting graphene structures discovered
MIT physicists have established twisted graphene as a new “family” of robust superconductors stacked at precise angles.
Method developed for improving autonomous robotic systems
MIT researchers have developed a general-purpose optimizer that can speed up the design of walking robots, self-driving vehicles, and other autonomous systems.
Engineers build LEGO-like artificial intelligence chip
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.
Heat engine with no moving parts designed
MIT researchers have design a heat engine with no moving parts, which could help enable a fully decarbonized power grid in the future.
2D material electron correlation found in graphene
Researchers have found direct evidence of electron correlations in a two-dimensional material called ABC trilayer graphene.
Inflatable robotic hand provides real-time tactile control for amputees
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.
