The Rochester Institute of Technology, (RIT) was established in 1829 as a private university in Henrietta, New York. Today, RIT has over 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Notable departments include: The Department of Imaging Science, Microelectronics Engineering, Information Technology and the Institute of Technology. RIT is a world-class institute with an international presence.
New metal alloy could yield green cooling technologies
A promising new metal alloy system could lead to commercially viable magnetic refrigerants and environmentally friendly cooling technologies, according to a scientist at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Researchers at RIT seek to solve the problem of looping with Meshed Tree Protocol
The next breakthrough in computing that will make our computer networks more reliable, faster and more secure against cyber attacks is being developed at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Simulated map of missing satellite galaxies could answer dark matter puzzle
A ripple in the outskirts of the Milky Way—and a hunch—led Rochester Institute of Technology astrophysicist Sukanya Chakrabarti to a previously undetected dwarf galaxy hidden under a veil of dark matter. Now Chakrabarti ...
Flip-flopping black holes spin to the end of the dance
When black holes tango, one massive partner spins head over heels (or in this case heels over head) until the merger is complete, said researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology in a paper published in Physical Review ...
'Smart dust' technology could reshape space telescopes
Telescope lenses someday might come in aerosol cans. Scientists at Rochester Institute of Technology and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory are exploring a new type of space telescope with an aperture made of swarms of particles ...
Study explains decades of black hole observations
(Phys.org) —A new study by astronomers at NASA, Johns Hopkins University and Rochester Institute of Technology confirms long-held suspicions about how stellar-mass black holes produce their highest-energy light.
'Grapes of Wrath': Stomping out grape disease one vineyard at a time
Cracking the genetic code of a common disease affecting grape production could improve vineyard management and help protect the multibillion-dollar industry that includes raisins, juice, jam/jelly, fresh grapes, grape-seed ...
RIT engineering team designs online math and science activities for K-12 community
What teacher has not heard students challenge, "Why do I need math? Why am I learning this? I'm never going to use it."
Dynamics of tears: A cure for dry eye could be a blink away
A treatment for dry eye—a burning, gritty condition that can impair vision and damage the cornea—could some day result from computer simulations that map the way tears move across the surface of the eye.
New tracking system measures distribution hazards on products and packages
Packaging and distribution of goods is a multi-billion dollar industry. Yet damage to goods while in transit has a financial impact on companies and consumers, also in the millions of dollars, according to national industry ...
