Tiny Mechanical Wrist Gives New Dexterity to Needlescopic Surgery

A Vanderbilt research team has successfully created a mechanical wrist less than 1/16th of an inch thick -- small enough to use in needlescopic surgery, the least invasive form of minimally invasive surgery.

An Easy, Scalable and Direct Method for Synthesizing Graphene in Silicon Microelectronics

APL-Kim-graphenesynthesis.jpg

Graphene has been studied intensively for its unique properties, and now researchers have developed a microelectronics-compatible method to grow it and have synthesized wafer-scale, high-quality graphene on silicon substrates. The method is based on an ion implantation technique, a process in which ions are accelerated under an electrical field and smashed into a semiconductor. In Applied Physics Letters, the researchers describe their work, which takes graphene a step closer to commercial applications in silicon microelectronics.

The Next MacGyver Will Be a Woman — and a UW Engineering Student May Invent Her

Twelve finalists have been picked to invent the heir to Angus MacGyver — the 1980s television hero who inspired a generation of engineers by foiling criminals with household items like cooking oil, a shop vac or a tube sock. Only this time the engineering heroine will be a woman.
