Yung Joon Jung for Northeastern
A team led by Northeastern researchers Swastik Kar and Yung Joon Jung has developed a way to detect nuclear materials that far outpaces any existing method. “Our detector could dramatically change the manner and accuracy with which we are able to detect nuclear threats at home or abroad,” says Kar.
An interdisciplinary team of researchers led by Northeastern University has developed a novel method for controllably constructing precise inter-nanotube junctions—an innovation that could have major real-world applications in a range of industries.
An interdisciplinary duo of Northeastern professors have created the first electronic chip that mixes optical and electronic signals to perform the most elementary computational operations—a breakthrough that could lead to much faster and more efficient electronic devices.
Two Northeastern professors have discovered an unexpected photoswitch that could be used to make highly efficient optical electronics.
