Plasmon Energy Expansion Thermometry Enables Temperatures to be Mapped in Nanometer Units

Overheating is a major problem for the microprocessors that run our smartphones and computers. But a team of UCLA and USC scientists have made a breakthrough that should enable engineers to design microprocessors that minimize that problem: They have developed a thermal imaging technique that can "see" how the temperature changes from point to point inside the smallest electronic circuits.

UT Arlington Professor Develops Innovative Sensors to Monitor Conditions of Coal-Fired Boilers

A University of Texas at Arlington engineering professor is developing a distributed wireless antenna sensor system to monitor conditions of coal-fired boilers that will lead to making the units safer, more efficient and eventually producing better designed units. [More]
New, Wearable Nanowire Sensor Monitors Electrophysiological Signals

New, Wearable Nanowire Sensor Monitors Electrophysiological Signals

Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new, wearable sensor that uses silver nanowires to monitor electrophysiological signals, such as electrocardiography (EKG) or electromyography (EMG). [More]
Motion Detector with Nano-Sized Cantilever May Help Detect Extraterrestrial Life

Motion Detector with Nano-Sized Cantilever May Help Detect Extraterrestrial Life

Looking for life on other planets is not straightforward. It usually relies on chemical detection, which might be limited or even completely irrelevant to alien biology. On the other hand, motion is a trait of all life, and can be used to identify microorganisms without any need of chemical foreknowledge. [More]
