Neural prostheses are engineered devices that record from and/or electrically stimulate excitable tissue in order to improve health outcomes. Since the introduction of the first heart pacemaker in the 1950s, there have been a number of devices approved for clinical use, resulting in a dramatic impact on the quality of life of millions of people ...

Abstract The financial and environmental cost of turbulence is staggering: manage to quell turbulence in the thin boundary layers on the surface of a commercial airliner and you could almost halve the total aerodynamic drag, dramatically cutting fuel burn, emissions and cost of operation. Yet systems-level tools to model scale interactions or control turbulence remain ... Read more about "IGM Colloquium: Systems analysis of wall turbulence: Characterizing self-sustaining processes"

The FSSCAT mission is expected to be launched onboard of the Vega SSMS Maiden Flight in mid 2019. In addition to its remote sensing objectives, the mission will demonstrate for the first time worldwide a reliable optical intersatellite link (O-ISL) between two 6U CubeSats flying in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). We have developed a technology ... Read more about "Overview of the FSSCAT Optical Intersatellite Link (O-ISL) - Technology Demonstration"
