Making the Internet of Things happen
  1. Making the Internet of Things happen

    Wentzloff aims to remove the necessity of a power outlet or even a battery to power miniature sensors.

  2. Research that will lead to sharper photos earns best paper award

    The method they developed compares favorably with the best of current techniques, while being faster and easier.

  3. When GPS fails, this speck of an electronic device could step in

    The research group developed special fabrication processes that allows them to stack and bond seven different devices in layers.

  4. New laser shows what substances are made of; could be new eyes for military

    By shining the laser on a target and analyzing the reflected light, researchers can tell the chemical composition of the target.

  5. After Newtown: A new use for a weapons-detecting radar?

    The technology could potentially identify a hidden weapon from a distance in less than a second.

  6. Using HERCULES to probe the interior of dense plasmas

    Thanks to HERCULES, scientists are now able to study very dense plasmas — a crucial step in nuclear fusion and astrophysical research.

  7. James McCullagh receives Best Student Paper Award for research to keep bridges safe

    McCullagh is working to develop energy harvesting devices and circuits to power wireless sensor nodes which can monitor bridge health.

  8. Chris Berry awarded 2012 Michigan Space Grant Consortium Fellowship

    The proposed emitter incorporates plasmonic photoconductors to more efficiently convert power from incident laser light into terahertz radiation.

  9. New technology allows CT scans to be done with a fraction of the conventional radiation dose

    “We’re excited to be adding Veo to the measures we already have in place to ensure that we get diagnostic images using the lowest amount of radiation possible.”

  10. A smarter way to make ultraviolet light beams

    The researchers have optimized an optical resonator to take an infrared signal from relatively cheap telecommunication-compatible lasers and boost it to an ultraviolet beam.
