UCF Professor Invents Way to Trigger Artificial Photosynthesis to Clean Air, Produce Energy

A chemistry professor has just found a way to trigger the process of photosynthesis in a synthetic material, turning greenhouse gases into clean air and producing energy all at the same time. The process has great potential for creating a technology that could significantly reduce greenhouse gases linked to climate change, while also creating a […]

The Human Factor: Meet the New Patients in Simulation

He can sense and respond to touch, look you in the eyes and exhibit real emotions. But this patent-pending simulated patient, developed by a team of UCF researchers, is not human. “One of the unique aspects of this new tool is its ability to bring humanity to simulation,” said Gregory Welch, a computer scientist and […]

'Florida Trend' Highlights UCF Transformation Under President Hitt

UCF’s rise to national prominence under the direction of President John C. Hitt is featured in the latest edition of Florida Trend magazine. “Strength in Numbers,” the cover story in the June edition that focuses on higher education in the state, chronicles the past 25 years of the university as it tripled in enrollment to […]

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.
