Prepare for Finals with Study Union

As final exams approach, UCF students are invited to use Study Union, one of the many academic support services available through Student Academic Resource Center. Study Union is a partnership between SARC, the Student Union and Office of Student Involvement. The Student Union remains open for 24 hours to provide a safe and collaborative space […]

Student Earns NSF Grant to Study Lack of Women in Physics

UCF physics doctoral student Brian Zamarripa recently landed a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship to study the gender disparity in the field of physics. According to the American Physical Society, fewer than 20 percent of undergraduate and doctoral students who earned degrees in physics in 2013 were women. Zamarripa hopes to change that. He […]

UCF’s Dove Wins NASA Award for Space Research

Adrienne Dove, a University of Central Florida assistant professor in the physics department, recently was awarded NASA’s Susan Mahan Niebur Early Career Award for her research on microgravity and dusty plasmas, collisions and planet formation. Her work is helping scientists who have been puzzled for decades understand some mechanisms of dust charging and transport, which […]

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.
