Rock-and-Roll Grandpa Earns Missouri S&T Doctoral Degree for Research on Using Desert Shrub as Asphalt Recycling Agent

Missouri University of Science and Technology

He’s driven the backroads with some of the biggest names in rock and roll, from Def Leppard and KISS to John Denver and the Eurythmics, hauling both gear and performers as a truck- and bus-driving roadie.Yet despite his many brushes with fame, what gets Mike Lusher most excited these days is his Missouri University of Science and Technology research into an unassuming desert shrub that some predict will revolutionize the rubber industry.

Columbia Researchers Squeeze Light into Nanoscale Devices and Circuits

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia investigators have made a major breakthrough in nanophotonics research, with their invention of a novel “home-built” cryogenic near-field optical microscope that has enabled them to directly image, for the first time, the propagation and dynamics of graphene plasmons at variable temperatures down to negative 250 degrees Celsius. If researchers can harness this nanolight, they will be able to improve sensing, subwavelength waveguiding, and optical transmission of signals.

New Study First to Demonstrate a Chip-Scale Broadband Optical System that Can Sense Molecules in the Mid-Infrared

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Researchers at Columbia Engineering have demonstrated, for the first time, a chip-based dual-comb spectrometer in the mid-infrared range, that requires no moving parts and can acquire spectra in less than 2 microseconds. The system, which consists of two mutually coherent, low-noise, microresonator-based frequency combs spanning 2600 nm to 4100 nm, could lead to the development of a spectroscopy lab-on-a-chip for real-time sensing on the nanosecond time scale.

FAU Awarded $1.25 Million by U.S. Navy for Research in Support of Unmanned Marine Vehicle Platforms

Florida Atlantic University

Research for the five-year project will support autonomous unmanned marine vehicle platforms for coastal surveillance, coastal surveys, target tracking and protection of at-sea assets. The project will entail developing unmanned surface vehicles that serve as “motherships” for unmanned underwater vehicles and aerial drones, thereby enabling multi-vehicle, multi-domain capability that may serve as a mobile coastal monitoring system.
