Studying how insects perform key tasks is giving scientists insight into how robots can achieve complex actions with limited processing power, pointing towards building them on the scale of flies and cockroaches.
Researchers at CU Boulder are using lasers to precisely quantify the performance of high-speed engines. Those measurements — recently described in detail in Optica — are key to propelling superfast hypersonic vehicles and providing better engine performance overall.
The Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering had another successful year for research funding, bringing in 37 new awards and funding on 72 existing sponsored projects, which totaled nearly $14 million. Fiscal year 2022 marked 10 consecutive years that the department has brought in $10 million or more in...
Scientists at LongPath and CU Boulder are using new laser technology to do what other technologies have struggled to do for years: detect natural gas, which is invisible to the eye, leaking from pipes at sites like this, in real time.
The slide deck is part of presentations given by IRT directors in April on accomplishments and activity within their themes to date. They include details on funding results, important research findings and other lessons learned from the initiative.
A new initiative between the College of Engineering and Applied Science and Sandia National Laboratories aims to develop areas of mutual research interest and support broader STEM workforce development among graduate students.
Josh Miller, a mechanical engineering student, is the first to enroll in the ITLP Arduino micro-credential - a programs that aims to serve students looking to improve their proficiency with Arduino microcontrollers.
