PHILADELPHIA -- Memory devices for computers require a large collection of components that can switch between two states, which represent the 1’s and 0’s of binary language. Engineers hope to make next-generation chips with materials that distinguish between these states by physically rearranging their atoms into different phases.
Scott Diamond of the School of Engineering and Applied Science comments on technological advancements in examining blood clots.
RightCare Solutions, a Startup Based on Penn Nursing Research, Wins the Janssen Connected Care Challenge
