Profile
Founded in 1861, the University of Washington (UW) is one of the oldest state-supported institutions of higher education on the west coast of the United States and is one of the preeminent research universities in the world. The UW has 47,000 students (34,000 undergraduate and 13,000 graduate) and 3,900 full-time faculty, divided into 16 schools and colleges. UW's research budget consistently ranks among the top 5 in both public and private universities in the United States. The UW is also the largest recipient of federal research funding among public universities and second among all public and private universities in the country, a position that the UW has held each year since 1974. The UW faculty includes more than 120 members of the National Academies, thirteen MacArthur Fellows, five winners of the National Medal of Science, and six Nobel Prize winners. Programs from across the campus are ranked among the best in their fields.

Kids connect with robot reading partners

Kids learn better with a friend. They're more enthusiastic and understand more if they dig into a subject with a companion. But what if that companion is artificial?

Solar cells need to slim down

Thin-film solar cells could be 1/100th the thickness of a piece of paper and flexible enough to festoon surfaces ranging from an aerodynamically sleek car to clothing. To make thin-film solar cells, scientists are moving beyond the "classic" semiconductor compounds, such as gallium arsenide or silicon, and working instead with other light-harvesting compounds that have the potential to be cheaper and easier to mass produce. The compounds could be widely adopted if they could perform as well as today's technology.

The first wireless flying robotic insect takes off

Insect-sized flying robots could help with time-consuming tasks like surveying crop growth on large farms or sniffing out gas leaks. These robots soar by fluttering tiny wings because they are too small to use propellers, like those seen on their larger drone cousins. Small size is advantageous: These robots are cheap to make and can easily slip into tight places that are inaccessible to big drones.

Tissue paper sensors show promise

Engineers have turned tissue paper - similar to toilet tissue - into a new kind of wearable sensor that can detect a pulse, a blink of an eye and other human movement. The sensor is light, flexible and inexpensive, with potential applications in health care, entertainment and robotics.

Robotic network to explore Antarctic ice shelves

One of the biggest unknowns for the future of Earth's climate is Antarctica, where the West Antarctic Ice Sheet holds so much ice that if it collapsed could bring several feet of rising seas. A new partnership will use a robotic network to observe the conditions beneath a floating Antarctic ice shelf.
