Massive materials data sets and tools are accessible to all

Massive materials data sets and tools are accessible to all
University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers recently used powerful computers to quickly and accurately develop the world's largest computed database of information about an important materials-mixing process called diffusion. Led by Dane Morgan, Harvey D. Spangler Professor in materials science and engineering at UW-Madison, the researchers published details of their advance in the journal Scientific Data.

Alternative ways to deliver drugs into bacteria

Alternative ways to deliver drugs into bacteria
An exhaustive look at how bacteria hold their ground and avoid getting pushed around by their environment shows how dozens of genes aid the essential job of protecting cells from popping when tensions run high. For centuries, biologists have considered cells the irreducible unit of life, and cells require various types of envelopes to contain the chemical conditions life demands. When cells lose their mechanical properties, they rupture and die, and many antibiotics attack the envelope in order to mechanically destabilise bacterial cells.

Material could boost power of vacuum electronics

Material could boost power of vacuum electronics
Modern tools like microwave ovens and X-ray machines that are powered by intense, focused beams of electrons are ubiquitous, but many of the materials in those devices have remained largely unchanged for decades. Now, electrical and materials engineers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison have identified a substance that could vastly improve the technology.

Antenna design turns military vehicles into transmitters

Antenna design turns military vehicles into transmitters
High-frequency antennas transmit radio waves across vast distances and even over mountain ranges using very little energy, making them ideal for military communications. These devices, however, have one big problem: They need to be huge to operate efficiently. Instead of adding more bulk, University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers are working to increase the effective size of antennas by turning the military vehicles that carry them into transmitters—using the structures that support the antennas themselves to help broadcast signals.

Method allows the production of high-performance transistors

Method allows the production of high-performance transistors
  Working in collaboration with colleagues around the country, University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have pioneered a unique method that could allow manufacturers to easily and cheaply fabricate high-performance transistors with wireless capabilities on huge rolls of flexible plastic.

New technique allows researchers to fine-tune gene editing

Taking advantage of advanced microscopy techniques, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers has developed a highly efficient method for more precisely editing genes in populations of cells and viewing how individual cells change, in real time. The method could increase researchers' ability to target genetic defects while leaving the rest of the genome alone.

Souped-up software reduces guesswork in computer-aided engineering

A team of engineers from University of Wisconsin-Madison recently released a computer-aided engineering software program and its users are already calling it a 'gift from heaven'. UW-Madison mechanical engineering Professor Krishnan Suresh led a team that spent four years developing the software, which assists in optimising the design of parts for just about anything, from bicycles and airplanes to bridges and furniture.
