Communication could step beyond reading a cellular phone screen with a new technique by Purdue College of Engineering researchers, led by ECE Prof. Hong Tan, to learn and read messages through a person’s sense of touch.
Led by ECE Prof. Surabh Bagchi, A new Purdue University College of Engineering center has been unveiled to seek the foundational design principles that underlie resilient systems. The Center for Resilient Infrastructures, Systems and Processes (CRISP) was officially started in October 2017 and will run its seed grant competition for research proposals this summer.
Purdue researchers, including ECE Prof. Haiyan Wang, have observed a way that the brittle nature of ceramics can be overcome as they sustain heavy loads, leading to more resilient structures such as aircraft engine blade coatings and dental implants.
Purdue ECE professors Wenzhuo Wu and Peide Ye have discovered a new two-dimensional material, derived from the rare element tellurium, to make transistors that carry a current better throughout a computer chip.
Purdue researchers, led by ECE Prof. David Ebert, have developed an online platform that enables first responders to monitor emergency situations using tweets and Instagram posts. Called the Social Media Analytics and Reporting Toolkit (SMART), the browser-based platform filters social media content according to key words and geographic regions defined by the user.
Purdue researchers, including ECE professors Vladimir Shalaev and Alexandra Boltasseva, have helped design a compact switch that enables light to be more reliably confined to small computer chip components for faster information processing.
Purdue researchers collaborated in a Rice University-led study detecting a quantum shift that results from the strong coupling of light and an ultra-high mobility two-dimensional electron gas rotating in opposite directions. Michael Manfra, professor of ECE, MSE, and physics and astronomy, led the Purdue team.
A Purdue University-affiliated startup has devised a way to map arteries in the roof of a person’s mouth to help avoid complications and improve outcomes in oral surgery. The process was created by ECE Prof. Kevin Webb and alumnus Brian Bentz.
A Purdue-affiliated company is developing a way to reduce drug development costs by more accurately and efficiently modeling molecules and chemical reactions in liquid solutions. QUAIL Modeling LLC was co-founded by ECE Prof. Tillmann Kubis and PhD student James Charles.
