Clemson University researchers have developed a multilayer porous silicone (pSi) wave-guide sensor using a low-cost fabrication approach to achieve a high sensitivity, low limit of detection (LOD) and near unity confinement of light.
Inventor: Dr. Judson Ryckman, Gabriel D. Allen, William F. Delaney
Clemson University and Medical University of South Carolina researchers designed EEGnet. The software effectively allows researchers from across the country to view and collaborate with large scale brain wave data. EEGnet has the potential to dramatically change the research and application of EEG data by providing standardized data needed to validate new algorithms to diagnose epilepsy and similar disorders.
