Researchers working with Navy to improve ship performance

If you want faster ships, you have to lighten the load. That's the idea behind a multimillion dollar research project involving the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, a local company and the U.S. Navy. Researchers hope to develop cryogenically cooled electronics that will greatly reduce the size of the power generators needed aboard the Navy's warships.
