A mathematical model links up slithering with some kinds of swimming and walking, and it could make programming many-legged robots easier.
University of Michigan researchers have found how quantum materials emit light as though it were only a positive pulse, rather than a positive-negative oscillation.
An electrode that could free up 20% more light from organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) could help extend the battery life of smartphones and laptops and other devices, making them more energy efficient.
3D morphing wings developed by University of Michigan researchers could help small aircraft safely navigate windy streets and other close-corridor situations.
University of Michigan researchers are surveying wastewater systems for COVID-19 will continue until 2023 after receiving an additional $5 million in funding.
Self-erasing chips developed relies on a material that temporarily stores energy, changing the color of the light it emits and it self-erases in a matter of days or erased on demand.
Heat-harnessing solar cells that reflect 99% of the energy they can’t convert to electricity could help bring down the price of storing renewable energy as heat and improve overall energy efficiency.
Rechargeable batteries that store energy the way animals store fat could help robots operate for longer periods according to a research team at the University of Michigan.
University of Michigan researchers have made plastic conductive while also making it more transparent, which can improve large touchscreens, LED light panels and window-mounted infrared solar cells.
Researchers at the University of Michigan, Purdue University, and the University of Liverpool in the UK have figured out a way to measure how many hot charge carrier are present in a metal nanostructure for improved energy storage and conversion.
