Capturing Real-time 3D Feed from Inside the Arteries

Scientist F. Levent Degertekin of Georgia Tech has developed a microscopic single-chip volumetric imaging system capable of capturing real-time 3D images in the arteries. This 1.5 mm donut shaped silicon chip with a 430 μm center hole for a guide wire is an integration of the CMUT (Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers)-on-CMOS technology which allows for […]

Magnets to Guide Stem Cells Through the Body

Researchers at Emory University have devised a new method for directing stem cells to the target areas in the body.  This new method will prove to be helpful in treating various conditions like heart and vascular diseases by using stem cell therapy methods. The research has been conducted by a team led by Dr. W. […]

Superamphiphobic Paper with Potential Microfluidic Applications Developed by Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech has developed a new paper that repels fluids. The new superamphiphobic paper is developed by modifying the underlying network of cellulose fibers, etching off surface fluff and by applying a thin coat of chemicals on its surface. The researchers at Georgia Tech’s School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering have exploited the “lotus effect” […]
