Funded by the US National Science Foundation, Kathleen Melde, PhD, professor and Prabhat Baniya, PhD candidate, have created a chip-level “add-on” module that enables (multi-core) chip-to-chip wireless communication using reconfigurable antennas. Check out our video interview with Kathie and Prabhat.
Patricia Stock, PhD, professor at the University of Arizona Department of Entomology and Interim Director of the School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences has discovered compounds derived from an insect opathogenic bacterium, Photorhabdus, that have antimicrobial and nematicidal properties that can potentially replace the use of harmful chemical pesticides.
Funded by the National Eye Institute in the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and Tech Launch Arizona, Jim Schwiegerling, PhD, professor at the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences has developed a series of lenses that might shorten your trip to the eye doctor.
Funded by NIH and the Packard Foundation, Michael Worobey and Tom Watts set out to push the limits of genome sequencing. Their findings have the potential of enhancing our ability to fight pandemics.
For this month’s blog, we had the opportunity to sit down with Michael Kuhns, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Immunobiology in the University of Arizona College of Medicine.
We visited the lab of Don Gervasio, PhD, Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of Arizona College of Engineering. He took us on a quick tour of a recent invention: a more efficient fuel cell.
To get beyond typical plant wash bases like chlorine and hydrogen peroxide to kill microbes, Sadhana Ravishankar, PhD, has developed a safer and more natural alternative for those leafy greens. Read more about the invention, available for licensing.
Hermelinda Bristol, mother of Jeffrey Bristol who has cerebral palsy, has developed a supportive, non-motorized exoskeleton to help Jeffrey walk without assistance. With TLA's help, the design is now available to help others.
In optical communications such as those that drive the Internet, modulators are essential. Robert Norwood, Ph.D. and Nasser Peyghambarian, Ph.D., collaborated to create a new electro-optic waveguide modulator with low insertion loss.
Anthony Muscat, Ph.D., is developing a process to deposit a very thin coating of metal using metal nanoparticles by only the electrostatic interaction between the nanoparticles and a suitably prepared substrate surface like silica, glass or other metals. Check out the blog and video.
