UCLA Develops World's Fastest Camera - (36.700.000 fps)

UCLA Develops World's Fastest Camera - (36.700.000 fps) | College Research Project | Scoop.it


"To begin with, this “automated flow-through single-particle optical microscope” (that’s its official name) is nothing like a digital camera. With a shooting speed of 36.7 million fps and a shutter speed of 27 picoseconds, CCD and CMOS sensors simply aren’t up to the task; it takes too long to read the data out of each pixel, and at such high speeds there isn’t enough light to produce a sharp image anyway. Instead, this new microscope uses STEAM imaging — serial time-encoded amplified microscopy — which was developed by the same UCLA team in 2009. Without getting into really gritty details: Basically, STEAM fires off quick laser pulses which are reflected off cells that flow through a microfluidic device. The image is amplified and picked up by a very high-speed single-pixel photodetector, and then the image is processed by an FPGA. There’s a (silent) video at the end of the story that demonstrates how the STEAM system works."

Online gamers crack AIDS virus enzyme puzzle at University of Washington

Online gamers crack AIDS virus enzyme puzzle at University of Washington | College Research Project | Scoop.it
ONLINE gamers have achieved a feat beyond the realm of Second Life or Dungeons and Dragons: they have deciphered the structure of an enzyme of an AIDS-like virus that had thwarted scientists for a decade. Developed in 2008 by the University of Washington, it is a fun-for-purpose video game in which gamers, divided into competing groups, compete to unfold chains of amino acids - the building blocks of proteins - using a set of online tools.

To the astonishment of the scientists, the gamers produced an accurate model of the enzyme in just three weeks.

Educating Administrators for Strategic Financial Literacy | Whittier College

Whittier College president Sharon Herzberg writes about the importance of campus staff having financial literacy, using examples of planning communications by her CFO, SCUPer Jim Dunkelman.

 

"We did what others on campuses throughout the nation did during this period. We communicated often, both in writing and in person, trying to find the right balance between reassuring people and providing accurate, up-to-date information about the challenges we faced. Consistent with the dictum that a “good crisis is a terrible thing to waste,” we also took advantage of the campus’ heightened interest in our finances to educate the community more deeply about the college’s fiscal state and the long-term implications of our revenue base.


The results have been extraordinary. If your own campus missed this opportunity to educate broadly about your financial realities, I urge you: wait no longer. Here are some thoughts about where to begin."

UCLA researchers discover that the sleeping brain behaves as if it's remembering something

UCLA researchers discover that the sleeping brain behaves as if it's remembering something | College Research Project | Scoop.it

UCLA researchers have for the first time measured the activity of a brain region known to be involved in learning, memory and Alzheimer's disease during sleep. They discovered that this part of the brain behaves as if it's remembering something, even under anesthesia, a finding that counters conventional theories about memory consolidation during sleep.
