New graphene sensor technology for personal and environmental health

A new wearable vapor sensor could one day offer continuous disease monitoring for patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, anemia or lung disease. The new sensor, which can detect airborne chemicals either exhaled or released through the skin, would likely be the first wearable to pick up a broad array of chemical, rather than physical, attributes.  [More Info]

Student Spotlight: Patrick Sheridan - Memristors and the Brain

Patrick is at the frontier of developing memristor devices for neuromorphic computing as a member of Prof. Wei Lus nanoelectronics research group. Taking inspiration from the brain, we look at how neurons are interconnected and share signals, and then we try to replicate that with our memristive devices, said Patrick, Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering.  [More Info]
