  • Florida Jails Lack Critical Mental Health Services, UCF Ph.D. Candidate Finds

    Florida jails lack critical mental health services and treatments for inmates, ultimately posing a risk to the community and the inmate upon release, according to research by a University of Central Florida doctoral student. The problem was identified by Orville Clayton, who graduates this week with a Ph.D. in public affairs in the health services […]

  • Study Finds Variation Within Species Plays Critical Role in Health of Ecosystems

    Concerns about biodiversity tend to focus on the loss of species, but a new study suggests that the loss of variation within species can also have important and unexpected consequences on the environment. Many species play important roles in nature and provide services important to people. For example, many fish species are harvested for food, […]

Nanotech Advances Future Mobile Devices and Wearable Technology

A team of UCF scientists has developed a new process for creating flexible supercapacitors that can store more energy and be recharged more than 30,000 times without degrading. The novel method from the University of Central Florida’s NanoScience Technology Center could eventually revolutionize technology as varied as mobile phones and electric vehicles. “If they were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,” said Nitin Choudhary, a postdoctoral associate who conducted much of the research. Learn more about batteries vs. supercapicitors and additional nanotech research being conducted at UCF.
