New Book Ranks Albuquerque Among Best Cities to Become Technology Hubs

A new book recently published by two MIT professors argues that investing federal dollars geographically to create technology hubs in cities across the U.S. that lose out to the few east-coast/west-coast super cities for most private and public investments in basic science and invention commercialization, will dramatically result in widespread innovation that boosts economic growth and good-paying jobs. In Jump-Starting America, How Breakthrough Science Can Revive Economic Growth and the …Read More

UNM Quantum Sensor Technology Improves NMR Spectroscopy

A new sensor technology developed by a team of researchers at the University of New Mexico can detect and identify trace molecules in samples at the picoliter level (one trillionth of a liter).  The sensor optically converts the magnetic field produced by the molecules into red fluorescence to detect the presence of the molecule and, for the first time, identify its composition in two dimensions.  The technology was developed by …Read More
