  1. ‘Perfect black’ coating can render a 3D object flat, raises intriguing dark veil possibility in astronomy

    The carbon nanotube carpet is about half the thickness of a sheet of paper and absorbs 99.9 percent of the light that hits it.

  2. Making smart dust a reality

    This research is expected to have a fundamental and long term impact on a diverse set of applications ranging from energy conservation to health care.

  3. Safer medical imaging with microwaves

    The goal of the research is to develop an alternative method to x-ray imaging that is safer and uses nothing stronger than radio frequency waves.

  4. Chris Berry awarded Michigan Space Grant Consortium Fellowship

    Berry is designing an emitter to operate as a light-weight, local oscillator for a terahertz spectroscopy system suitable for use in space.

  5. Toward computers that fit on a pen tip: New technologies usher in the millimeter-scale computing era

    U-M faculty have developed what is believed to be the first complete millimeter-scale computing system, with applications in radio communication and wireless sensing.

  6. Paving the way for ubiquitous computing

    Until now, ubiquitous computing has been hampered by the size of necessary batteries—but Ambiq Micro is changing that, with their energy-efficient micro-controllers.

  7. Ruzbeh Akbar receives NASA Fellowship for SMAP Mission Research

    SMAP is a satellite mission for mapping surface soil moisture and freeze/thaw states for the purpose of scientific advances and societal benefits.

  8. Millimeter-scale, energy-harvesting sensor system developed

    The system could enable new biomedical implants as well as home-, building- and bridge-monitoring devices.

  9. Yong Long receives Best Poster Award for work in medical imaging

    Long’s work describes a new algorithm for performing model-based methods in a way that requires less computation yet provides improved image quality.

  10. Michael Benson receives NASA Fellowship

    For his research, Benson plans to utilize SAR in order to estimate variable vegetated parameters and monitor the planet’s crustal movement.
