Nano flashlight could allow future cell phones to detect viruses, more

Design of miniature optical systems enables new applications of light. In work that could turn cell phones into sensors capable of detecting viruses and other minuscule objects, MIT researchers have built a powerful nanoscale flashlight on a chip. This research was supported in part by the MIT Skoltech Program. Read full article “Nano flashlight could allow future cell phones to detect viruses, more”

How to prevent short-circuiting in next-gen lithium batteries

The research by MIT graduate student Richard Park, professors Yet-Ming Chiang and Craig Carter, and seven others at MIT, Texas A&M University, Brown University, and Carnegie Mellon University resulted in new findings that may help unleash the potential of high-powered, solid-electrolyte lithium batteries. The research was in part supported by the MIT-Skoltech Next Generation Program. Read full article “How to prevent short-circuiting in next-gen lithium batteries”
