A recent trip to a cancer center in Boston helped astrophysicists from RIT's Center for Detectors reach a key milestone in their mission to develop advanced CMOS image sensors for future NASA space missions.
Numerous Rochester Institute of Technology faculty, professors emeriti, and postdoctoral researchers were recognized as top-cited scientists in their fields, according to a Stanford University study published by Elsevier.
RIT will begin offering a new Ph.D. in the fall of 2024 that is designed to prepare graduates to extend the frontiers of fundamental scientific knowledge and develop new advances in technologies at the forefronts of 21st century physics.
RIT student Lazar Buntic received a earned a graduate research fellowship through the Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology program to develop infrared detectors for next generation telescopes.
Associate Professor Jie Qiao received a prestigious Fulbright U.S. Scholar Award to advance ultrafast laser material processing technology in the coming academic year. The faculty member from RIT’s Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science will be a visiting professor at the University of Bordeaux.
RIT students can soon begin earning a minor in an emerging field that could disrupt the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. RIT students can now take classes toward a minor in quantum information science and technology.
Worldwide experts will soon gather at RIT to discuss the central role photonics plays in advancing quantum technologies. RIT and SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, are partnering to host the Photonics for Quantum 2022 event June 6-9 at the RIT campus.
RIT’s team will develop the technology needed for a point-of-care diagnostics system built on integrated photonics. Capable of accurate detection of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, the new system could reduce the need for expensive equipment and specialized expertise to better inform care decisions in underserved, resource-limited communities.
