Entangled photons to take pictures in the dark
Joshua Yuan at the McKelvey School of Engineering is using quantum physics to develop technology to image photosynthesis in action without disturbing the process. The research has received support from the U.S. Department of Energy.
Telescope-inspired microscope sees molecules in 6D
A new imaging technology from the lab of Matthew Lew at the McKelvey School of Engineering uses reflection and refraction to more directly see molecules’ orientation and position.
Patwari to develop ways to share the spectrum with NSF grants
Two National Science Foundation grants will support the McKelvey School of Engineering’s Neal Patwari as he develops ways to optimize and safeguard the finite amount of radio spectrum bandwidth.
Machine learning model builds on imaging methods to better detect ovarian lesions
Research from Quing Zhu’s lab at the McKelvey School of Engineering yields a novel method to use ultrasound to enhance machine learning’s ability to accurately diagnose — or rule out — ovarian cancer.
NSF grant supports development of GPS-free, secure communication
A $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation will support Shantanu Chakrabartty, at the McKelvey School of Engineering, as he works to develop GPS-free, encrypted self-powered communications.
