Analysis and Simulation of Rock Properties

VSG, Burlington, MA, USA

VSG provides high-performance 3D visualization toolkits and software for a number of industries, including materials science and geosciences. One application of their technology is with American oil and gas reserves. The difficulty of accessing these sites has forced the industry to turn to the technique of injecting fluid under pressure into rock deposits. This technique requires knowledge of ...

Restoration of Lake Water Environments

Shuya Yoshioka
Ritsumeikan University
Shiga, Japan

Human activity steals oxygen from natural water sources such as lakes and this oxygen-deficient water often contains high levels of toxic substances such as metals and organic material. Thus the number of lakes that can be used as a source of water is reduced, straining the available resources and creating a need for water-treatment plants of water which can have negative impacts when powered ...

COMSOL Assists Master Chef in Winning International Competition

Dagbjorn Skipnes

Nofima Norconserv AS,
Stavanger, Norway

Nofima is a research group majority owned by the Ministry of Fisheries that performs research and development in aquaculture, fisheries, and the food industry. Nofima collaborated with the Norwegian Centres of Expertise – Culinology and Chef Gunnar Hvarnes to promote halibut through a cooking competition and provided research to ensure a new recipe for a fried halibut fish roll was cooked ...

Reduced-Weight Reaction Sphere Makes Way for Extra Satellite Payload

Leopoldo Rossini, Emmanuel Onillon, & Olivier Chetelat

CSEM SA, Neuchatel, Switzerland

CSEM is a private applied research and development center specializing in micro-technology, system engineering, micro-electronics, and communications technologies. One of their latest projects is working on minimizing the weight of satellite attitude control systems as every gram of payload matters when launching a satellite into orbit (€15,000 per kilogram). CSEM hopes to accomplish this task ...

Optimization Slashes Energy Consumption in Silicon-Based MEMS CO2 Detectors

Serge Gidon

CEA, Leti, Minatec, Grenoble, France

CEA-MINATEC is an international center for micro and nano-technologies which is funded by CEA, a French government-funded technological research organization. One of their current projects is developing silicon-based MEMS CO2 sensors that employ optical detection for monitoring adequate building ventilation. For the sensor to function, a filament is heated to a specific temperature so that it ...

A 100-Fold Improvement in Lithography Resolution Realized with a 150-Year-Old “Perfect Imaging” System

Juan Carlos Miñano and Dejan Grabovičkić
Cedint Polytechnic University of Madrid
Spain

The idea of "perfect imaging", that is a resolution less than the wavelength of light producing the image, was first proposed in the mid-19th century by famed Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell. For the next 150 years, it was widely believed that such was impossible due to the fact that light diffracts around points that are the same size or smaller in wavelength. Then, in 2009, Ulf ...

Modeling Scar Effects in Electrical Spinal Cord Stimulation

Kris Carlson, Dr. Jay Shils & Dr. Jeffrey Arle
Lahey Clinic
Burlington, MA

The Neuromodulation Group at Lahey Clinic conducted a study based upon spinal cord stimulation (SCS). SCS involves implanting a series of electrodes that apply electric potential to the spine, interfering with pain signaling circuitry. It’s used to alleviate chronic back and leg pain. Although the treatment remains effective for years, the electrodes must be reprogrammed through trial and ...

The Science of Water Screening

Ehrich Shaw
Johnson Screens
New Brighton, MN

Johnson Screens® are the manufacturers of steel screens that impede debris from lakes and rivers from entering pipes and valves that will utilize the water. Their task is to provide application-specific screens that must be customized to the environment they are operating in. Often this means taking into account the characteristics of the debris they are to remove, the depth at which the screen ...
