Intelligent framework aims to optimize data transfer in 5G networks
New tech is designed to allow cellular communication nodes in 5G systems to partition bandwidth more efficiently in order to improve end-to-end data transmission rates.
NSF Research to solve grand challenges
From harmful algal blooms to protecting infrastructure with mussels, NC State's Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering's research is leading the way in critical issues facing both North Carolina and the world. With recently announced funding from the National Science Foundation, four BAE faculty can conduct research to better understand and address these critical problems.
Code of ethics doesn’t influence decisions of software developers
Research finds that ACM’s revised code of ethics does not appear to affect the decisions made by software developers.
Assessing how Florence affected the very ground we stand on
After Florence, experts moved in to assess the damage. NC State’s Brina Montoya was one of them.
New electric car charger is more efficient, 10 times smaller than current tech
A new electric vehicle fast charger is at least 10 times smaller than existing systems and wastes 60 percent less power during the charging process, without sacrificing the charging time.
In our labs
A helium neon laser, Nikon imaging lenses, Horiba micro-HR motorized monochromator, and a DLP-based arbitrary spectrum generator. These are just some of the optical sensing and spectral measurement tools you will find in the Optical Sensing Lab (OSL).
A bright idea
The NSF FREEDM Systems Center marks 10 years of innovation on how we use electricity.
A shared experience
Research Experiences for Teachers program builds on teamwork.
NC State named first university-based IBM Q Hub in North America
NC State will be the first university in North America to establish an IBM Q Hub as part of the global IBM Q Network, a collaboration between tech powerhouse IBM and top Fortune 500 companies, national research labs and leading universities to advance quantum computing.
Researchers propose a blockchain data network to boost manufacturing
Researchers in industrial and systems engineering are proposing the creation of a public, open-source network that uses blockchains — the technology behind cryptocurrencies — to share verifiable manufacturing data. The system could be used as a peer-to-peer network that allows companies to find small- and medium-sized manufacturers that are capable of producing specific components on a reliable basis.
