  • Dripping water
    The Executive Board of the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) selected a Tufts team's paper as Honorable Mention for Best Paper of 2015. The paper used water insecurity to predict domestic water demand in the Palestinian West Bank.
  • Driverless electric vehicle on a track
    Professor Bill Messner writes for The Conversation on the current state of the development of autonomous vehicles.
  • Lithium is one of the lightest and most energetic elements. It is also one of the most reactive. When exposed to water, it can burst into flame.

    Professor of the Practice Mike Zimmerman is developing a new generation of batteries that won't explode. Watch him talk about it on NOVA's "Search for the Super Battery."

  • Assistant Professors Ayse Asatekin and Kristen Wendell
    Assistant Professors Ayse Asatekin and Kristen Wendell are appointed to endowed professorships in recognition of their outstanding research programs and potential.
  • Tom Vandervelde looks over an optics set-up with students in the REAP Lab.
    Associate Professor Tom Vandervelde has been elected chair of the Optics for Energy Technical Group for the Optical Society of America (OSA).
  • Confined terahertz waves interact with tunable, two-dimensional electron gas in a novel slot waveguide.
    Tufts engineers have invented a chip-sized, high-speed modulator that operates at terahertz frequencies and at room temperature at low voltages without consuming DC power. It could make faster data transmission possible.
  • Associate Professor Lauren Black and postdoctoral scholar Whitney Stoppel at work in the Black Lab.

    Associate Professor Lauren Black and collaborators are developing a novel tissue graft which could give new hope to pediatric heart patients.

  • Mike Zimmerman discusses his work on the first polymer-based solid state battery with Anthony Sullivan
    Professor of the Practice Mike Zimmerman is developing a solid polymer lithium metal battery, which would be significantly less likely to catch fire than the current generation of batteries.
  • A silk fibroin pin changes color from blue to red
    Biomedical engineers have created materials with embedded, pre-designed functions. The process enables the creation of mechanical components with functionality, such as surgical pins that change color with strain.
  • Professor Robert Jacob
    Professor Robert Jacob has been elected Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). At most, 1% of ACM members may be fellows.
