Nonphotochemical quenching (NPQ) is a response mechanism in plants and algae that allows them to process and dissipate excess excitation energy as heat safely. Collecting fluorescence data from these plants and algae in surface water environments can incur errors from NPQ, ultimately leading to inaccurate calculations of chlorophyll concentration for environmental and…
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…
Strokes are one of the primary sources of long-term disability with billions in annual direct and indirect costs to the United States healthcare system. Nearly one-third of all strokes occur in patients with clogged carotid arteries. Carotid artery imaging types include digital subtraction angiography (DSA), duplex ultrasonography (DUS), CT angiography, and MR angiography.…
Intramembrane proteolytic cleavage is an important process in a number of signaling pathways and pathologies. One of the best-known is that of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), where the gamma-secretase enzyme cleaves amyloid precursor protein (APP) to create free amyloid. This free amyloid accumulates to form amyloid plaques during the later stages of the disease. New drugs are…
A dual-capacitor resonant circuit for adaptive resonant energy to be used in quasi-resonant ZCS dc-dc converters has been created. Specifically, the full-bridge (FB) boost-type dc-dc converters were developed for quasi-resonant ZCS operation and smooth current commutation by utilizing L-C resonance between leakage inductance of high frequency transformer and a resonant…
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…
