Thomas Frost Receives Best Paper Award for Achieving a HQ QD Red Laser
Lasers emitting in the 600nm wavelength range have important applications in medicine, optical information processing, plastic fiber communication systems, optical storage, and full color laser displays and laser projectors. Red lasers, which stand at the upper end of the wavelength spectrum compared… .
Thermal Vision: Graphene light detector first to span infrared spectrum
The first room-temperature light detector that can sense the full infrared spectrum has the potential to put heat vision technology into a contact lens. Unlike comparable mid- and far-infrared detectors currently on the market, the detector developed by University of Michigan engineering researchers… .

Sparse Adaptive Local Learning for Sensing and Analytics
New computer hardware based on the brain's approach to interpreting visual stimuli is being explored that will have the ability to process images and video 1,000 times faster with 10,000 times less power without the loss of accuracy. The computer chip utilizes networks of conventional transistors and… .
Penny-Sized Vacuum System Could Help Detect Chemical Weapons
Researchers at the University of Michigan developed three different pumps in three different pressure categories. From lowest to highest pressure, the categories are microplasma Penning ion high vacuum, Knudsen mid vacuum, and high-frequency peristaltic rough vacuum pumps. Pictured above is a 24-stage… .
