UCLA Team Harnesses Machine Learning Imaging Technology for Materials Design

Materials scientists at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering have developed a new way to optimize the design of complex optical materials by using the same machine-learning technique that creates deceptive imagery known as “deepfakes.”

3D Printed Carbon Tube-in-Tube Structures Garnered the Cover of Nature Materials

A group of materials scientists, chemists, and modelers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, University of Groningen (Netherland), and UCLA (Prof. Morris Wang) have created a new class of ultralight and stiff carbon tube-in-tube structures via a 3D printing technique called direct laser writing – two photon polymerization (DLW-TPP).
