Author: Tammi Freehling

Group from Notre Dame Colleges of Science and Engineering in Chile with Catolica colleagues.

In April 2018, a delegation from Notre Dame visited with colleagues from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Católica) in Santiago, Chile. The trip was led by Mary Galvin, William K. Warren Family Foundation Dean of the College of Science; and Peter Kilpatrick, Matthew H. McCloskey Dean of the College of Engineering, and included faculty and advisory council members. Galvin and Kilpatrick sought to engage in dialogue with peers, exchange ideas, and create pathways for collaboration between scientists and researchers at both institutions. Read More

Researchers use novel technique to overcome limitations of electronic devices

Author: Brandi Klingerman

Modern electronic devices and components are made up of fundamental building blocks known as transistors. The role of a transistor is to behave as an electrical switch, passing information through an electrical circuit, but balancing the transistor’s switching speed and voltage while avoiding excessive heat production present a problem. To overcome this challenge, researchers from Cornell University, the University of Notre Dame, and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, have created a hybrid semiconductor-superconductor device that may help develop enhanced transistor devices for use in applications such as wireless communications.

Notre Dame researcher addresses global health challenges in St. Joseph County

Author: Brandi Klingerman

Indiana is in the bottom 10 states for infant mortality with a 2016 infant mortality rate (IMR) of 7.5. This means more than seven children die out of every 1,000 births. Unfortunately, St. Joseph County’s IMR was even higher, with an 8.2 IMR average from 2012 to 2016. To better understand what can be done to decrease this rate Elizabeth A. McCue, a global health research associate for the Eck Institute for Global Health, has teamed with the St. Joseph County Health Department to assess local health initiatives and see where they are most effective and how they could be improved.
