Encryption is less secure than we thought
August 13, 2013For 65 years, most information-theoretic analyses of cryptographic systems have made a mathematical assumption that turns out to be wrong.
‘Invisible’ particles could enhance thermoelectric devices
February 6, 2013New approach could improve the efficiency of devices that harness power from temperature differences.
Chips that can steer light
January 9, 2013Record-setting ‘optical phased arrays’ could lead to better laser rangefinders, smaller medical-imaging devices and even holographic TVs.
Ozdaglar selected as the inaugural Steven and Renee Finn Innovation Fellow
November 27, 2012The fellowship provides tenured, mid-career faculty in the Department of Electrical Engineer and Computer Science with resources for up to three years to pursue new research and development paths.
Searching genomic data faster
July 10, 2012Biologists’ capacity for generating genomic data is increasing more rapidly than computing power. A new algorithm will help them keep up.
New chip captures power from multiple sources
July 8, 2012System developed at MIT could combine power harvested from light, heat and vibrations to run monitoring systems.
Communication scheme makes popular applications ‘gracefully mobile’
June 27, 2012New MIT software keeps tens of thousands of people logged into remote computers from mobile devices, but the underlying technology could improve a host of other programs.
New energy source for future medical implants: sugar
June 12, 2012Implantable fuel cell built at MIT could power neural prosthetics that help patients regain control of limbs.
