  Engineering more power-efficient phase change memory devices
A team of Penn Engineering researchers, led by Ritesh Agarwal, Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, have made a step forward in the effort to find new and better ways of storing the 0's and 1's of computer memory in a recent paper. Along with Pavan Nukala, one of his students, Agarwal collaborated with fellow materials science professor Russell Composto to make model phase change memory devices that are more power-efficient than ever before.

Levitation of a Rare Earth Magnet

In the classroom of Daniel Gianola, the Meissner effect is demonstrated with a rare earth magnet above a YBCO high critical temperature superconductor. The superconductor discs were synthesized by undergraduate students as part of the course MSE 250, Nanoscale Materials Laboratory. Watch the video!
