NASA Selects UCF Project as Finalist for Explorer Mission

NASA has just selected a University of Central Florida space project as a finalist for its Explorer Mission of Opportunity program. The selection fulfills the dream of two UCF scientists who have been researching solar weather – and its affects on our terrestrial technology – for more than five years. If chosen, this project would […]

UCF Research Could Bring ‘Drastically’ Higher Resolution To Your Phone and TV

Researchers at the University of Central Florida have developed a new color changing surface tunable through electrical voltage – a breakthrough that could lead to three times the resolution for televisions, smartphones and other devices. Video screens are made up of hundreds of thousands of pixels that display different colors to form the images. With […]

This UCF-Designed Tech is Amazing

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.
