Spatial Image Digitizer to Improve Agricultural GIS

Clemson University researchers have developed a spatial image digitizer (SID) to help farmers with growing crops and increase yields.

Luminescent Carbon Dots for Optical Imaging

Carbon dots brightly fluoresce across the entire visible spectrum and near-IR, making them ideal for serving as fluorescence probes for bioimaging.

Super-Resolution Microscopy for Live Cell Imaging

Clemson University researchers have developed a method of super-resolution microscopy that allows for imaging of live samples without causing damage to the cellular architecture.

Multi-layered Osteochondral Implant for Enhanced Bone Healing

Clemson University researchers have developed a readily available multilayered osteochondral implant that allows for better integration and mechanical support, decreasing the potential for rejection or revision surgery.

Engineered Aquaculture Ecosystem for Managing Wastewater

Researchers have developed a method for reducing fish waste output using algal growth basins originally developed for wastewater treatment.
