Melting defects could lead to smaller, more powerful microchips

As microchips shrink, even tiny defects in the lines, dots and other shapes etched on them become major barriers to performance. Princeton engineers have now found a way to literally melt away such defects, using a process that could dramatically improve chip quality without increasing fabrication cost.

Princeton engineers elected to top academic and scientific academies

Emily Carter, the Arthur W. Marks '19 Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Applied and Computational Mathematics, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest scientific honors. In a separate honor, Carter and fellow Princeton engineers Pablo Debenedetti and Marlan Scully were elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the nation's most prestigious society spanning the sciences and humanities.
