Russian hacker targets Purdue computer science project

Rayyan Khan and her team had been creating a social media site for their computer science class since the beginning of the semester, but a week before the due date, the project was hacked and stolen. “Our entire database was missing,” Khan said. “The only thing that was left was a ransom note.”

How Purdue University Commercializes Its Research

For Yung-Hsiang Lu, improving the energy efficiency of computer technology to provide real-world benefits has been a lifelong focus.

“When I was learning data structures, I began to see things from a different viewpoint—how to make things efficient,” says Lu, a professor of electrical and computer engineering and a university faculty scholar at Purdue University’s Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in West Lafayette, Ind.

New Photovoltaic Cell Makes Electricity From Thermal Radiation

The modest capability of the new PV cells is still remarkable for a something that is only in the prototype stage, Peter Bermel, an electrical engineer at Purdue University, told The Daily Beast in an email. People may not recall that early solar panels were so inefficient, they were laughed at by many skeptics, or that LEDs not so long ago were so dim, no one could possibly imagine a commercial use for them. These new PV cells could extend the life of solar panels and provide a reliable source of electricity for the more than 750 million people who live without electricity worldwide.

Glimpse Raises $6.2 Million To Place Products In Short-Term Rentals

In 2019, Akash Raju and his friends, Anuj Mehta and Kushal Negi, started hosting brand pop-ups at their school, Purdue University, in a quest to bring interactive shopping experiences to their rural — and often overlooked — West Lafayette, Indiana, campus. The events showcased local brands and small businesses and the trio ran their first stint out of the back of a moving truck parked in the middle of the school’s property. With graduation looming, the trio realized they could bring the same methodology to a new sector: short-term rentals.

An indium oxide-based transistor created using atomic layer deposition

Researchers at Purdue University have recently developed new transistors based on indium oxide, a semiconductor that is often used to create touch screens, flatscreen TVs and solar panels. These transistors, introduced in a paper published in Nature Electronics, were fabricated using atomic layer deposition, a process that is often employed by transistor and electronics manufacturers.

Purdue Aims to Support Microchip Manufacturing Workforce

Purdue University Professor Mark Lundstrom says almost every week he is talking with technology companies that are considering building a plant in various states, including Indiana, to manufacture microchips and other advanced systems. He spent a career working and teaching in the field of electrical and computer engineering and is a leading expert in semiconductor devices and nanoscale transistors. Lundstrom says the microelectronics industry is quickly changing and a global shortage of microchips is just a part of the puzzle.
