Adaptive optics upgrade for the CHARA Array interferometer
An on-telescope system that compensates for atmospheric turbulence will improve the telescope sensitivity, expand the target pool, and allow the study of young stars.
Effective computing for radio astronomy instruments
A reconfigurable computing platform and software approach significantly improves development times for high-performance, real-time digital signal processing instrumentation.
Improving the search for exoplanets
High-contrast images can be obtained with space telescopes that are equipped with microelectromechanical systems deformable mirrors.
Controlling electromagnetic waves with meta-surfaces
A novel design, which involves an H-shaped sandwich structure, can efficiently convert propagating waves to surface waves.
See-through screen for 3D augmented reality
Holographic optical elements can be used to implement a transparent display capable of overlaying a 3D virtual image on the real-world scene being viewed.
Adam Plesniak: Sun-tracking, concentrating systems boost PV efficiency
The record-setting CPV technology behind the Alamosa Solar project in Colorado offers utilities a viable option in hot, dry climates.
