A team of UC Santa Cruz researchers led by computer science Professor Seshadhri Comandur have completely characterized the kind of six-person plus complex patterns that can be efficiently counted on a network. This has important applications beyond the realm of mathematics, including epidemic spread and tracking the spread of disinformation on a social network.
The CROSS funded Tracery and Chancery project, which focused on computational support for casual creators, officially graduated from the Center’s incubator program after the October 5, 2020, Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) meeting.
Santa Cruz, CA—A team led by Holger Schmidt, professor of electrical and computer engineering and Narinder Kapany Chair of Optoelectronics at the University of California, Santa Cruz have demonstrated a new on-chip laser and its integration into optofluidic chips.
“This novel tunable light source can add another functional component to our optofluidic bioanalysis chips,” Schmidt said, “adding both flexibility and simplicity and moving us closer to a fully integrated lab on a chip.
The results will be published in Optics Letters.
