  1. In the most recent decades, material characterization has evolved into the microscopic scanning field. Modern sensors are capable of applying electromagnetic radiation to obtain characterization data on set materials. However, current technologies require rotating sensors or sample adjustments. This causes problems in measurements because it risks ...

  2. Due to the ease of application and their desirable properties, epoxies are one of the most commonly used thermoset polymers. They can be used in dental fillings, wind turbines, adhesives, corrosion protectants, and so much more. The reason why epoxy resins are available for such a large range of applications is due to the nature of epoxy structure ...

  3. The CDC estimates that 6.5 million people use some sort of mobility aid, such as canes, walkers, rollators or crutches. Mobility aids can be of great assistance for elderly and disabled patients. However, patients often use their mobility aids incorrectly because they cannot tell how much weight they are putting onto them and lean on them too much....

  4. Shoulder Overuse Syndrome (SOS) occurs from repetitive motion and excessive load put on a shoulder. SOS can affect anyone, from athletes to blue collar laborers, however, wheelchair users make up a significant portion of the affected population. SOS results in swelling, stiffness, instability or inability to complete shoulder movements. In severe c...

  7. Modern security applications have improved tremendously through integrated circuit (IC) technology. IC introduced critical advancements in compliance and counterfeit identifiers through unique and covert markings. However, the lack of consistency, quality, and availability of covert marking systems prevent advancement within this field. Current te...

  8. Radiotherapy is a common medical procedure, especially for the treatment of cancers such as head and neck, breast prostate, lung and rectum. It is a complex process aimed at maximizing delivery of the planned dose to the tumor sites while minimizing unnecessary radiation to healthy tissues. Today, radiotherapy procedures make use of image guidance ...

  9. Multinucleated giant cells (MGCs), formed from macrophage fusion, occur as a consequence of a number of pathological conditions in the body. MGC formation can be particularly destructive to synthetic implants, as it etches their surface, and could lead to implant failure. Despite significant research into macrophage fusion, there are many underlyi...

  10. The aerospace industry is constantly developing testing techniques to improve efficiency, and reduce cost. One dilemma with current testing techniques on aircraft is the inability to accurately detect surface and subsurface defects. These defects are often caused by service induced cracks that can be a result of fatigue or stress corrosion. Additio...
