Prof. Robert Heath is collaborating with Prof. Todd Humphreys and graduate students on the development of a centimeter-accurate GPS-based positioning system that could revolutionize geolocation on virtual reality headsets, cellphones and other technologies, making global positioning and orientation far more precise than what is currently available on a mobile device.
This month marks the 50th anniversary of Moore’s Law, an observation that every couple of years, computer chip manufacturers manage to squeeze twice as many transistors onto a computer chip. Moore’s Law embodies the exponential increase in raw computing power that unleashed a blizzard of tech innovations.
Texas ECE undergraduate Ankit Sharma worked on a research project that looks at nanowalls as a potential material for light sensors. Ankit has worked with Prof. Deji Akinwande on a project called “The Optoelectronic Properties of CVD-grown MoS2 Nanowalls.”
Ray T. Chen, professor in the school’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and his team, developed a new method and demonstrated a flexible photonic crystal cavity which can be bent to a curvature of 5 mm radius without sacrificing the performance.
