Infrared imaging technology takes a giant leap forward

A paper recently published in Scientific Reports shares that a research team from the University of Notre Dame has engineered a chip that allows thermal imaging with IR detectors. This new chip features unique properties not previously available with conventional...

 Designing next-generation optical antennas

Designing next-generation optical antennas

Antennas catch radio waves from the air and convert the energy into electrical signals. They can also convert electrical signals into radio waves. Optical engineers and scientists, like Associate Professor Anthony J. Hoffman, are working toward leveraging these devices to...

Notre Dame Researchers Open Path to New Generation of Optical Devices

Notre Dame Researchers Open Path to New Generation of Optical Devices

Cameras, telescopes and microscopes are optical devices that measure and manipulate electromagnetic radiation [light]. Being able to control the light in these devices provides more information through a better “picture” of what is occurring. Specifically, controlling light on small scales...

Biocomputing: Imitating the Real Thing to Improve Life

Pinar Zorlutuna and a team of University researchers have created a new type of diode, one that is made entirely of cardiac muscle cells and fibroblasts. Their recently published paper titled “Muscle-Cell-Based ‘Living Diodes’” discusses how using muscle cells as...
