Each month in the Charge letter, we showcase schools around the country who are doing incredible work. The variety of institutions and projects that are the subject of research and development never cease to amaze us.
Researchers at NC State University are developing new technology to aid in disasters. The team’s “cockroach biobots” will be potentially used to map disaster areas and to help identify survivors and those in need, using remote controlled sensor technology.
Researchers at Northwestern University had a breakthrough in quantum cascade laser (QCL) frequency comb design that is profoundly more efficient than what was previously engineered. Professor Manijeh Razeghi leads the team of researchers.
UH Assistant Professor Aaron Becker leads the team and aims to develop a solution to deploy thousands of tiny robots into the human bloodstream to minimize current methodologies of invasive surgery and testing.
