UNT Ph.D. graduate develops method to protect nanoelectronics
DENTON (UNT), Texas – In a paper published in Nature’s Scientific Reports, University of North Texas Ph.D. graduate student Benjamin Sirota explains a new method for protecting nanoelectronics that will result in longer-lasting components with better electronic stability.
“When dealing with electronics at the nanoscale , exposure to foreign substances can have devastating effects,” said Sirota. “Remember, we are dealing with electronics at the smallest scale. Main electronic components such as...

UNT researchers use first-of-its kind process to develop wear and corrosion resistant alloys
DENTON (UNT), Texas - Corrosion and wear are very common – they can happen to any material exposed to an environment. But, what if materials could be tested at the atomic level to determine exactly how and why they break down and then be improved to create ultra-high performance alloys? Researchers at the University of North Texas have done just that – and are designing next generation alloys that could be used in bio-implants or even outer space. Their study was recently published in...

UNT professors available to discuss net neutrality
In light of today’s planned FCC vote to repeal net neutrality, University of North Texas professors are available to discuss the following related topics:
Hua Sun, assistant professor of electrical engineering, can discuss his research on prevention of data tracking, which makes internet usage more efficient.
“We are looking for the most efficient ways of using bandwidth, of using fewer resources and paying less,” Sun said. “My research consists of three areas – private information retrieval, anonymous communications and secure computation. We are...
