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…
Commonly implanted medical devices containing metal parts (i.e., dental fillings, coils, hip replacements) generate streaks in computed tomography (CT) images, thereby impeding diagnosis and interfering with radiation therapy planning. Inventors at RPI created a novel technique to boost the efficacy of neural networks for metal artifact reduction (MAR) in CT images. Currently…
Inventors at RPI have invented a technology that can overcome the issues seen in few-view CT scans. CT scans use a large number of X-rays exposing the patient to ionizing radiation during this procedure. Though the risk of cancer from a CT scan might be extremely low, there is still a concern that the combined risks of scanning for diagnoses and/or treatment could lead to a…
"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-…
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are developing a non-invasive and user-friendly wearable device for monitoring blood pressure, blood glucose, and biomarkers, which could improve quality of life,  decrease healthcare expenditure, and allow for early intervention for potentially serious diseases.    Currently, a major area of interest within the medical…
Researchers at RPI have developed a mixed-reality museum installation called the “World of Plankton (WOP).” WOP offers users a multisensory, interactive game based on phytoplankton ecology. Thanks to a virtual touch pool, users can manipulate and augment imagery of specific fish, microalgae, and other aquatic flora and fauna. Doing so launches sound effects, animation and…
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…
Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) can result in catastrophic loss of function. In the US, 450,000 people live with SCI. Ongoing neuroscience research focuses on ways to improve nervous tissue regeneration, including development of innovative biomaterials. Implantable scaffolds composed of aligned polymer fibers have shown considerable promise in directing regenerating axons in vitro…
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…
Detecting differences at the cellular level is an ongoing problem which, if successfully addressed, could help solve several prevalent ailments, including cancers and prenatal diseases. Normal tissue function requires appropriate cell positioning and directional motion. This property, known as chirality, can be altered by genetic and environmental factors, leading to, for…
