Scientists and industry leaders alike have hypothesized that we are reaching the limits of our ability to design faster computational systems using traditional hardware like transistors. While quantum computing is a tantalizing solution to this problem, the technology is not yet ready for the hands and pockets of the average consumer. Jennifer Rupp, Professor of Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science and Principal Investigator of the Electrochemical Materials Lab, is working to develop new materials that bridge this technology gap for the average person. The Electrochemical Materials Lab focuses on finding new ways to process ceramic and glass, leveraging new methods and design paradigms towards new device functionalities that have the potential to make our devices smaller, faster, and smarter than ever before.
