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.
The outskirts of spiral galaxies like our own could be crowded with colliding black holes of massive proportions and a prime location for scientists hunting the sources of gravitational waves, said researchers at Rochester ...
A study using multiple radio telescopes confirms that supermassive black holes found in the centers of galaxies can form gravitationally bound pairs when galaxies merge.
Seeing the light: Researchers seek to improve solar cell technology using new materials and nanowires
Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology are expanding solar cell technology using nanowires to capture more of the sun's energy and transform it into usable electricity. Comparable to ultra-thin blades of grass, ...
New information gleaned from gravitational wave observations is helping scientists understand what happens when massive stars die and transform into black holes.
In a disaster, a delay can mean the difference between life and death. Emergency responders don't have time to wait in traffic—even on the congested information superhighway.
Images taken by NASA's New Horizons mission on its way to Pluto, and now the Kuiper Belt, have given scientists an unexpected tool for measuring the brightness of all the galaxies in the universe, said a Rochester Institute ...
A new class of carbon nanotubes could be the next-generation clean-up crew for toxic sludge and contaminated water, say researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Research conducted by scientists at Rochester Institute of Technology rules out a challenge to the accepted standard model of the universe and theory of how galaxies form by shedding new light on a problematic structure.
Imaging technology advanced by researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology and Florida Institute of Technology is being tested on the International Space Station and could someday be used on future space telescopes.
A new study by Rochester Institute of Technology that inventories and tracks high concentrations of plastic in the Great Lakes could help inform cleanup efforts and target pollution prevention.
