The terahertz (THz) band shows promise in terms of providing improved communications capabilities, including the ability for power-enhanced beam-forming and spatial multiplexing and reconfigurable array architectures that meet the capacity demands for 5G applications. All of these attributes of line of sight (LoS) systems in the THz spectral regime allow for wireless bit rates…
The SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to cause major issues around the globe. Thus, effective therapeutics are critically needed to help better control the virus. Researchers at RPI and collaborating institutions have identified HCV protease inhibitor drugs that may be viable SARS-CoV-2 antivirals. These researchers have used the 3D structure of the SARS-CoV-2 protease to evaluate…
"Researchers at RPI developed an optical reservoir computer (ORC) with commercial off-the-shelf components to predict lung tumor motion during radiotherapy. The technology could improve radiation therapy outcomes and yield applications for other imaging modalities. The ORC shows comparable motion prediction accuracy and error rates to traditional neural networks (long short-…
Rensselaer inventors created a hybrid fiber UV photodetector with a completely new internal gain mechanism which can achieve extremely high external quantum efficiency for ultrasensitive UV sensing while at the same time only require low voltage supply. The new photodetector has a high potential for system integration; the size of hybrid fiber UV photodetector is comparable to…
Rensselaer inventors created a nanocomposite fiber that promotes quick coagulation during hemorrhage resulting in reduced mobility and improved survival. The nanofiber composite is comprised of halloysite nanoclay, a natural occurring aluminosilicate nanoclay that exhibits a hollow tubular scroll structure. Hemostatic products on the market are effective in the short-term but…
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a technology which could improve VLSI testing by allowing for non-destructive testing of VLSI circuits under bias for electronic systems. With this new technology, researchers have focused on improving testing output as chip density increases along with decreasing chip sizes. Terahertz radiation (and related…
Alkaline exchange membranes (AEMs), also called anion exchange membranes, allow transportation of anions (ex: OH-, Cl-, Br-, etc.) from the cathode to the anode in electrochemical reaction. AEMs are the most critical component of AEM fuel cells, water electrolysis, and certain batteries, sensors, and actuators. Many AEM materials tend to degrade easily under high alkaline.…
Solid state radiation detectors, such as neutron detectors and gamma ray detectors, have been proposed as alternatives to gas-tube based detectors. Radiation-detecting hetero-structures may be formed by using physical etching processes, such as reactive ion etching (RIE) to form trenches in a semiconductor substrate, followed by using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) to…
The intelligent control of lighting has the potential to bring benefits in energy consumption, human comfort and well-being, and worker productivity. Existing systems have various drawbacks including: (1) they often only detect the presence of people, and not their number and spatial distribution in the room; and (2) they typically use cameras or other high resolution sensors…
Current DRAM chips can ensure error-free data storage (except for radiation-induced soft errors), which largely simplifies the overall computing system design. Each DRAM cell contains one transistor and one capacitor. Unfortunately, it becomes increasingly challenging to maintain the sufficiently large capacitance (hence error-free data storage). It has become clear that STT…
