Powering Wearable Microelectronics

Tara Martin 3 months ago Views

Wearable low power biometric devices and body sensor network systems (BSNs) such as heart, respiration, and activity monitors are popular devices that are predicted to increase tenfold by 2018. This project focused on biomechanical energy harvesting from rib cage expansion using piezoelectric materials and frequency up conversion to power wearable microelectronics.

Understanding Patient-Derived Glioblastoma Multiforme Cells’ Proliferation

Tejas Athni 4 months ago Views

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumor. Patients with GBM have a median survival of 15 months. Thus, treating GBM can be achieved by inhibiting the proliferation of the patient-derived cells using leaf extract of B. monnieri.

Smart Flood Sensor: Predicting Water Accumulation

The researcher developed a Smart Flood sensor that can not only help identify drain openings that are getting clogged in real-time, but can also determine areas where more drain pipes are needed.

Quantification of Atherosclerosis

William Yin 5 months ago Views

Atherosclerosis and subsequent cardiovascular disease causes nearly one-third of all deaths in the world. Unfortunately, atherosclerosis commonly remains asymptomatic for decades, and is properly diagnosed only after a severe, life-threatening cardiac event. Thus, a portable, low‐cost tattoo‐based biosensor for the non‐invasive self‐diagnosis and quantification of atherosclerosis was developed.

Use of Carbon Dioxide as a Renewable Reagent

Meghana Bollimpalli 5 months ago Views

Petroleum is heavily depended upon for energy production, the production of plastic, and the manufacturing of multiple important chemicals. Though petroleum is said to have broad areas of applications and the capacity to constantly produce a large amount of energy cheaply, it is also a nonrenewable resource that destroys our everyday environment. This project focuses on using wasted carbon dioxide as a renewable reagent to catalytically synthesize commercially useful cyclic carbonates.
