Self-healing sensor responds to temperature, adapts to skin
Penn State researchers have developed a medical sensor that can heal its own normal wear and tear and also can transform from rigid to soft to accommodate changing structural needs when triggered by temperature changes.
Waterproof sensors improve temperature and motion sensitivity, wearability
Waterproof sensor devices could be used for health monitoring and to help with human-robot interactions
Artificial intelligence center for engineered systems launched
The Center for Artificial Intelligence Foundations and Engineered Systems (CAFE) at Penn State University is designed to further foundational and applied artificial intelligence (AI).
Tailoring 2D materials to improve electronic and optical devices
Altering thin 2D materials atomically and physically for applications in many optical and electronic devices allows them to enhance light emission and increase signal strength.
Quantum computing used to discover possible COVID-19 treatments
Quantum machine learning could help researchers discover faster and more economical ways of treating COVID-19 than the current methods used for drug discovery.
