DURHAM, N.C. – Duke University engineers have developed a novel “sensor” that is more efficient, versatile, and cheaper for potential use in such applications as airport security scanners, and collision avoidance systems for aircraft, cars or maritime vessels..
DURHAM, N.C. – Microscopic metallic cubes could unleash the enormous potential of metamaterials to absorb light, leading to more efficient and cost-effective large-area absorbers for sensor applications or energy-harvesting devices.
DURHAM, N.C. – The first working “cloaking” device reported by Duke University electrical engineers in 2006 worked like a charm, but it wasn’t perfect. Now a member of that laboratory has come up with a design that ties up one of the major loose ends from the original device.
DURHAM, N.C. – By measuring the unique properties of light on the scale of a single atom, researchers from Duke University and Imperial College, London, believe that they have characterized the limits of the ability of metals to be used in devices that rely on the enhancement of light.
DURHAM, N.C. -- GPS has been a tremendously successful technology for positioning users in outdoor environments. But attaining GPS-like accuracy indoors has eluded telecommunication researchers for years.
That is, until now, according to a Duke University researcher.
In the last few years, several...
DURHAM, N.C. -- By synchronizing 98 tiny cameras in a single device, electrical engineers from Duke University and the University of Arizona have developed a prototype camera that can create images with unprecedented detail.
The camera’s resolution is five times better than 20/20 human vision over...
