    • Advanced Nanostructured Thermoelectric Materials for Waste Heat Recovery 

      Wu, Yue (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-03-27)
      The rapid development of thermoelectric materials in the past decade has provided a possibility of directly converting waste heat back to electricity based on the Seebeck effect. In the past three years, we have developed ...
    • Advances in Ion Trap Quantum Computing 

      Fallek, Spencer (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-04-12)
      With the advent of very-large-scale integration (VLSI), we have seen incredible improvements in computational power over the past four decades. However, there are certain problems which are untenable even with the most ...
    • Adventures in Policy Modeling! 

      Kaplan, Edward H. (2016-03-28)
      Policy Modeling refers to the application of operations research, statistics, and other quantitative methods to model policy problems. Recognizing that analyses of all sorts often exhibit diminishing returns in insight to ...
    • Aeons Before the Big Bang? 

      Penrose, Roger (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-03-24)
      There is much impressive observational evidence, mainly from the cosmic microwave background (CMB), for an enormously hot and dense early stage of the universe referred to as the Big Bang. Observations of the CMB are now ...
