Researchers find way to increase scanning speed

A major technological advance in the field of high-speed beam-scanning devices has increased the speed of 2D and 3D printing by up to 1000 times, according to researchers in Penn State's College of Engineering. >>
Penn State joins alliance with U.S., UK governments, industry, and academia 

A new collaboration between IBM, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defense, and leading industry and academic partners, including Penn State, has been formed in the area of Distributed Analytics and Information Science, or DAIS.

This DAIS International Technology Alliance will work on developing the fundamental underpinning research required to enable secure, dynamic, semantically aware, distributed analytics for situational understanding in coalition operations. >>

Metamaterial device allows chameleon-like behavior in the infrared

An electric current will not only heat a hybrid metamaterial, but will also trigger it to change state and fade into the background like a chameleon in what may be the proof-of-concept of the first controllable metamaterial device, or metadevice, according to a team of engineers.

"Previous metamaterials work focused mainly on cloaking objects so they were invisible in the radio frequency or other specific frequencies," said Douglas H. Werner, John L. and Genevieve H. McCain Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering. "Here we are not trying to make something disappear, but to make it blend in with the background like a chameleon and we are working in optical wavelengths, specifically in the infrared."
Engineering professor named one of five inaugural Moore Inventor Fellows

Xingjie Ni
, Charles H. Fetter Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, has been named a Moore Inventor Fellow by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. This is the first year for the Moore Inventor Fellowships program, which recognizes early-career innovators at U.S. universities with a high potential to accelerate progress in scientific research, environmental conservation, and patient care.
