UCF and ICAMR Capture DOE Award for Cost-Competitive Solar Energy

UCF and ICAMR Capture DOE Award for Cost-Competitive Solar Energy

A University of Central Florida-led team will receive $1.1 million to develop new manufacturing processes using a specialized tool that will bring the U.S. a step closer to achieving its goal of affordable photovoltaic (solar) energy. The project, led by Kris Davis, a research engineer at UCF’s Florida Solar Energy Center, will largely take place […]

New Sensor Center Makes Industry Splash

A year after it was created, The International Consortium for Advanced Manufacturing Research is planning its “coming out party” at the nation’s leading semiconductor manufacturing conference, which runs July 14-16 in San Francisco. Last June, the University of Central Florida, Osceola County and the Florida High Tech Corridor Council committed funding and resources to develop […]

The Future of UCF Downtown

Florida Governor Rick Scott vetoed nearly $500 million from the state budget. Included in those vetoes were funds for several UCF projects, including UCF Downtown.

UCF, Partners Form PRISM to Compete for Federal Integrated-Photonics Project

A group of photonics industry members is joining with five key research universities to compete for the federal government’s Integrated-Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IP-IMI) and $110 million in federal funds to be matched by state and private funding for a total project value of more than $230 million.   The University of Central Florida, Georgia […]

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.
