A neurosurgeon and an electrical engineer walk into a lab
Researchers propose to develop a technology capable of measuring the activity of individual cells of the brain and to stimulate those cells at room temperature with a MEMS device capable of being implanted above the inner table of the skull for long-term human use.
Meet the Professors:
UNDER PRESSURE: New technique could make large, flexible solar panels more feasible
A new, high-pressure technique may allow the production of huge sheets of thin-film silicon semiconductors at low temperatures in simple reactors at a fraction of the size and cost of current technology. A paper describing the research by scientists at Penn State University publishes on May 13, 2016, in the journal Advanced Materials.
Meet the Professor:
Programmable materials find strength in molecular repetition
Synthetic proteins based on those found in a variety of squid species' ring teeth may lead the way to self-healing polymers carefully constructed for specific toughness and stretchability that might have applications in textiles, cosmetics and medicine, according to Penn State researchers.
Meet the Professor:
