Most researchers use cold to preserve samples, but these researchers are using liquid nitrogen to control the rate of interactions in the Michigan Ion Beam Laboratory.
A Memristor for Neurons
Wei Lu, EECS Professor, has created a memristor chip that could play a key role in the future of autonomous systems such as self-driving cars.
Under the Surgical Sea
BME Researchers are performing surgeries on a deep sea organism in order to understand those who live on land better.
Fixing a Microwave
Sometimes engineers have to fix microwaves. This isn't your typical microwave, however.
Researchers are working towards greater utilization of energy through their work at the Plasma, Pulsed Power, and Microwave Laboratory (PPML), using high energy density plasma and high power microwave research.
Sea Slug Surgery
Tim Bruns, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and his researchers are performing surgeries on sea slugs in order to better understand how our nervous system works and obtains functional control over organs.
Watching (Smart) Grass Grow
AERO Researchers watch as the smart grass they've planted grows with the wind energy around it.
Let It Flow
Chemical Engineers are studying how fluorescent microscopy can affect how red blood cells flow and how drugs are delivered.
EECS researchers have created the thinnest stable silver layer ever seen, guarding against tarnishing and versatile with glass surfaces and other oxide materials.
Synthetic Tooth Enamel
Michigan Engineering researchers have developed a rigid and durable new material inspired by tooth enamel.
Biomedical Engineers are now able to lab-grow lungs that can provide a human model to screen drugs, understand gene function, and study complex diseases.
