Summer Parking for Enrolled Students

Summer Parking for Enrolled Students

The Northwest Quadrent (NWQ)  parking garage is now open for UWM students registered for summer classes. You must have a summer UPASS sticker to gain admittance. This will continue until the last day of summer classes. Information on getting a UPASS sticker can be found on the Parking & Transit web site.

With ‘ribbons’ of graphene, width matters

A group of researchers UWM has found a novel way to “tune” the the extremely efficient conductor of electricity to act as a semiconductor.

With ‘ribbons’ of graphene, width matters

A narrow enough ribbon will transform a conductor into a semiconductor.
