Harnessing the power of “phase-change” materials, Georgia Tech researchers have demonstrated how reconfigurable metasurfaces — artificial materials with extraordinary optical properties — are crucial to the future of nanotechnology. The technological advancement of optical lenses has long been a significant marker of human scientific achievement…

Thackery Brown has always viewed the mysteries of the human mind as “black box problems.” The assistant professor in the School of Psychology specializes in cognitive neuroscience because it enables him “to get behind the curtain and understand why cognition succeeds and fails, and potentially study ways of improving it.” Cognition, the mental…

A Georgia Institute of Technology research group in the School of Interactive Computing has developed a robotics system that exceeds existing standards for collaborative bots that work independently to achieve a shared goal. The system intelligently increases the information shared among the bots and allows for improved cooperation. The aim is to…

Georgia U.S. Sen. Jon Ossoff visited Georgia Tech’s campus on Friday, April 29. His stop at Tech brought major stakeholders in Georgia together in a roundtable discussion to explore the potential for a hydrogen hub in the Southeast. The Biden administration regards clean hydrogen as a critical component in a plan to transition the American energy…

A research team led by the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) was recently selected for second-phase funding of a $9.2 million project aimed at demonstrating a hybrid computing system that will combine the advantages of classical computing with those of quantum computing to tackle some of the world’s most difficult optimization problems. Over…

Material coming from a Princeton research lab is full of holes — but that's a good thing. Designed to mimic bone, wood, and other natural materials, the porous objects are lighter than traditional products and can be strategically inserted into structures to provide higher stiffness in areas with high demand. These porous structures, created by…

As communities continue a shift toward normalcy in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, researchers in Georgia Tech’s H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering have helped quantify the effectiveness of one of the most commonly-debated mitigation measures taken across the country. A new study published in BMC Public Health shows…

Ban evasion is a problem for users, moderators, and platforms alike. Evaders torment users on popular websites and get banned by moderators, only to return under a new account to continue their malicious behavior. Students and faculty at Georgia Tech’s College of Computing published a study that can help online moderators stop ban evasion in its…

In a multidisciplinary project, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia Tech-Lorraine used terahertz imaging and signal processing techniques to look beneath the corroded surface of a 16th-century lead funerary cross. Led by David Citrin, a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), the effort…

IDEaS is one of Georgia Tech's 10 interdisciplinary research institutes within the Georgia Tech Research enterprise. What is your field of expertise and why did you choose it?  Growing up, I liked design as a hobby from designing posters to making websites, and I also liked engineering and computer science. As I was close to graduating with my…
