Behavioral biometrics tools identify users with keystroke dynamics, signature verification, voice recognition, and gesture recognition. These technologies compare a profile of the users against a database created with contextual information, including physiological, cognitive, and contextual traits. Institutions of higher education, governments, and financial institutions use…
Using raw materials (thermoplastic pellets and rolls of fiber tows), this invention will continuously impregnate fiber tows with molten thermoplastic resin for fabrication of custom composite shapes, unlike current methods, which do not use raw materials and are extremely expensive processes. The ‘In Situ’ process can be used to either directly “print” composite parts in an…
Rensselaer inventors created a multi-launch system and capture method to effectively clean up debris in a cost-effective manner. Operationally, the method consists of deploying a small-sized object called the CubeSat. This is a small satellite with a low mass and can be part of the launch of another larger satellite or other space-based object. The CubeSat is launched into…
This technology relates to adaptive optical devices, and particularly to liquid lenses. Such optical devices avoid the increased weight and fabrication complexity associated with moving solid lenses. This technology utilizes a lens magnification control for adjusting magnification of the liquid lens by increasing a volume of protruding liquid residing in a chamber.
This technology relates to active flow control using an active roughness actuator. The active roughness actuator includes a surface having an aperture; a compliant layer covering the aperture; a chamber containing a fluid and a piezoelectric surface mechanically coupled to the chamber. The chamber is in fluid communication with the compliant layer via the at least one…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a scanning electron microscopy based temperature mapping technique which employs a temperature sensitive electron signal for nano-scale resolution, non-contact measurement. It provides enhanced capabilities for investigating heat generation and transfer at the nanoscale to address long-standing issues related to power consumption, heat…
This technology relates to a high thermal conductivity thermal interface material that allows for the formation of an interconnected, spanning, high thermal conductivity network within the matrix of a polymeric material using nano particles. This material can yield two orders of magnitude higher thermal conductivities than the non-network counterpart, as well as factorial…
This technology relates to liquid lenses, which are adaptive optical elements that avoid some of the drawbacks of mechanical optical elements, such as delayed movements and excess weight. This technology provides an oscillating liquid lens that includes a liquid drop with first and second droplet portions, a second liquid, and a drive that oscillates the liquid drop within a…
This technology couples the physical layer characteristics of wireless networks with key generation algorithms. It is based on the wireless communication phenomenon known as the principle of reciprocity which states that in the absence of interference both transmitter and receiver experience the same signal envelope. Signal envelope information can provide to the two…
Existing liquid lense optical focusing strategies use liquid lenses after transient oscillations have dampened. The challenge with this existing liquid lens approach is two-fold. The first issue is to overcome the liquid inertia to enable a rapid state change, and the second, is to minimize the time it takes for transients induced during stoppage to Subside. Many systems use…
