Researchers at RPI are developing a cognitive logic-enabled AI that can operate on multiple screens and in multiple environments for the K-12 sector. Declining public school math and science test scores have concerned American politicians and educators since the 1980s. This educational failure coincides with the large number of employees unable to fill the growing number of…
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…
Unlike vitamin D supplements, phototherapy provides a more natural means of vitamin D production. While research has shown that the vitamin D received from supplements is functionally equivalent to that synthesized from natural sunlight, evidence suggests that vitamin D sourced from sunlight remains active in our bodies longer than vitamin D derived from dietary supplements.…
"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…
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…
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…
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…
