The information bandwidth of lightwave is much higher than today’s electronic information technology. Processing information on lightwave thus has a significant advantage. Temporarily slowing down light on silicon chip allows us to complete the information processing in a small chip before light rushes off the chip. However, significant loss of light intensity occurs as light slows down. This fundamentally limits our capability in optical processing information on a small chip.
The National Science Foundation has awarded a three-year, $7.5 million grant to a Rutgers-led research team to develop a future Internet design optimized for mobile networking and communication.
The team of nine universities and several industrial partners has dubbed its project "MobilityFirst", reflecting the Internet's evolution away from traditional wired connections between desktop PCs and servers toward wireless data services on mobile platforms.
The University's Center for Autonomic Computing developed a wireless sensor project that detects human motion and can further medical research.
The sensors, which are small devices that attach to the body, contain accelerometers and gyroscopes that measure movement and can tell what action a person is doing, said Alex Weiner, a School of Engineering junior who is fine-tuning the algorithm of the sensors.
Rutgers’ graduate student Sushil Mittal has collaborated with a group of researchers from Siemens Corporate Research and Siemens Healthcare on a biomedical research project. Under the tutelage of Professor Peter Meer, Mr. Mittal spearheaded the project while interning at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ. Mr. Mittal is the first author on the first published paper, “Fast Automatic Detection of Calcified Coronary Lesions in 3D Cardiac CT Images*,” to feature research from the project.
The goal of autonomic computing, is to build systems and applications which manage themselves by responding to the data. They configure and adapt themselves in real time, analogous to the structure of a self-regulating biological ecosystem.
Rutgers students and researchers recently traced the ocean blue path Christopher Columbus made famous over 500-years ago with a noteworthy trip of their own making: the first ocean crossing by an underwater robotic vehicle.
Former ‘Sputnik kid’ turned Rutgers professor in high-level company at SETI 50th anniversary conference.
Scientists who monitor the skies for hints of intelligent life beyond Earth’s boundaries felt a glimmer of hope last month when word came of a faraway planet potentially capable of sustaining life.
Christopher Rose, an engineering professor at Rutgers, welcomed the announcement of Gliese 581g, a so-called exoplanet which is orbiting a star about 20 light-years away in the constellation Libra.
A WINLAB team received the Best Paper Award at the 2nd International Workshop on Research Advancements in Future Networking Technologies (RAFNET) at the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC'2017) now being held in Sydney. The paper is entitled: Evaluating 5G Multihoming Services
KMOX CBS Radio St. Louis interviewed Prof. Janne Lindqvist about his research on secure gestures. Could a doodle soon replace our passwords? Listen to the podcast and find out.
