Q-MEEN-C Poem Wins People's Choice Award

"A Quest Profound" Winner of the People's Choice Award at the Energy Frontier's 2023 Poetry of Science Art Contest II.

A modern poem with three stanzas of coupled rhymes (AABB). A humorous introductory quatrain about the current tech scene, followed by an octet describing the process of energy-efficiency using quantum material in new computers that mimic the human brain, and a concluding limerick to sum up the mission of the Energy Frontiers Research Cener.

Congratulations to the authors Alex Frañó, Mario Rojas, and Jon Schuller!

066. Low-temperature emergent neuromorphic networks with correlated oxide devices

Q-MEEN-C 2 Launched in Ceremony of Funding Renewal

Q-MEEN-C 2 is officially launched in a ceremony of renewed funding that featured distinguished guests such as California's 52nd Congressional District Representative Scott Peters and UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla who honored attendees with their words after a comprehensive introduction by Director Ivan K. Schuller, reminding us of the center's importance in present and future science:

"During the semiconductor revolution, materials science helped developers identify silicon and germanium as ideal materials. It is the same now, where we see quantum materials as the key to increasing computational power while also decreasing local energy consumption."

012. Organismic materials for beyond von Neumann machines

Ben Erbin Qiu awarded with double prizes for Excellence and Equity

Ben Erbin QIU, a graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, received the 2023 Schultz Prize for Excellence in Graduate Student Research from the Center for Memory and Recording Research! He was selected for exceptional contributions in the field of stochastic oscillators, an important area relevant to Neuromorphic Computing, straddling the boundaries between physics, electrical and computer engineering, and materials engineering. Qiu is co-supervised by Professors Ivan Schuller and Eric Fullerton.
Qiu was also selected as a 2023 Jacobs School Racial Equity Fellow, among a group of six fellows consisting of three undergraduates and three graduates, contributing towards creating and implementing programs to achieve increased diversity and equity. As a first-generation college student and the sole representative from a secluded village, Qiu has a fervent interest in narrowing the information gap that hampers the educational and career growth of underrepresented and underprivileged students.

085. Reconfigurable perovskite nickelate electronics for artificial intelligence

UCSD Researchers Receive DOE Funding to Continue Exploring Quantum Materials

The first generation of computers used vacuum tubes. The second, transistors and the third, integrated circuits. Each new generation allowed computers to be faster, smaller and more energy efficient. Now, as the world stretches beyond the limits of integrated circuits, what does the fourth generation of computing look like.
