Marching toward the market
Rui Jing Jiang and Brandon Kao, winners of the 2018 President’s Innovation Prize, are well on their way to their goal: to gain FDA approval for a device to treat glaucoma.
Penn Engineering groups awarded NSF grants to work toward ‘quantum leap’
One group will design robust, integrated quantum memory devices based on defects in diamond, and the other group will develop materials to encode and decode quantum information in single photons. These technologies will be part of the safest and most secure information network ever seen.
New microscopes will allow researchers to see small and think big
Two high-resolution microscopes will allow researchers to study and test materials at the atomic level with unprecedented precision.
Penn collaboration works to answer a fundamental nanotechnology question
Physicists have invented a new type of graphene-based sensor that could one day be used as a low-cost diagnostic system able to test for biomarker molecules, which are indicative of disease states.
Using nanotechnology to expand health care access
A team is using commercially available nanotechnology to develop a low-cost, handheld diagnostic device that can monitor HIV. This device would increase access to high-quality treatment of HIV in developing countries and lower the cost of health care in the U.S.
