Vanderbilt researchers extend software-development efforts for sustainable microgrids through $2.5 million Department of Defense project
Sep. 15, 2020—Vanderbilt leading green energy project to better manage microgrids, local energy systems, funded by the Department of Defense.
Jun. 17, 2020—The goal of the project—Risk-Aware Market Clearing—is a blueprint for an end-to-end, data-driven approach that balances cost and minimizes system-level risk. Market clearing is the process that keeps the supply level to the demand with no leftover of either.
Oct. 9, 2019—The first of what could be two dozen sophisticated sensor arrays—called the MoveVU Digital Gateway—has started collecting air quality and mobility data on Vanderbilt's campus as part of a large-scale, $9 million project backed by federal, state and university funding.
Sep. 27, 2018—Vanderbilt University physicists developed detailed quantum mechanical simulations that accurately predict the outcomes of various additive combinations in water used for enhanced oil recovery.
Oct. 13, 2017—Filling the universe with knots shortly after it popped into existence 13.8 billion years ago provides a neat explanation for why we inhabit a three-dimensional world. That is the basic idea advanced by an out-of-the-box theory developed by an international team of physicists.
Aug. 1, 2017—Vanderbilt researchers uncover the secret of the remarkable potency of the DNA toxin yatakemycin, which could someday be harnessed to fight cancer.
Jan. 27, 2016—Vanderbilt University is part of a new public-private partnership that has been awarded up to $40 million from the U.S. Department of Energy to explore, develop and demonstrate advanced nuclear reactor technologies to help America meet its goals for carbon emission reduction.
Vanderbilt School of Engineering, partners awarded $3.5 million from ARPA-E for transformational energy technology
Nov. 25, 2015—A new $3.5 million award from the Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy will support Vanderbilt University School of Engineering researchers' and their partners' efforts to create software that can control the Smart Grid – a decentralized power system that is more efficient, sustainable and reliable than America’s current electrical power delivery.
Jun. 30, 2015—A Vanderbilt team of scientists have developed a new formulation for cosmic viscosity which strongly favors the "Big Rip" end of the universe.
Jun. 2, 2015—Vanderbilt researchers have made the world’s smallest spirals and found they have unique optical properties that are nearly impossible to counterfeit.
Jan. 9, 2015—A cutting-edge Vanderbilt lab that studies how materials, structures and machines operate under real-world conditions will play a key part in the new multistate, $259 million Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) to be announced today by President Obama.
