Will the "Create the Future" reactor help power plants reduce their carbon-dioxide emissions?

Developers of a "HI-Light" chemical reactor were awarded top honors in this year’s 'Create the Future' Design Contest. The grand-prize-winning solar thermal device mimics plant photosynthesis and converts carbon dioxide emissions into a clean energy resource.

Lead researcher Elvis Cao envisions the up-scaled reactor alongside power plants, converting a facility's wasted CO2-rich flue gas. What do you think?

Antenna Basics

The antenna is the most intrinsic component of all RF systems, yet the principles of antenna design and wave propagation are rarely discussed outside the entry level engineering classes. Rohde & Schwarz has developed an educational white paper on Antenna Basics to reteach the basic principles in a simplified manner.

In 10 years, will brain-controlled UAVs support critical applications?

In this week’s INSIDER story, researcher Panagiotis Artemiadis predicted that we will see an increase in brain-controlled UAVs within the next ten years. The mind-controlled drones, according to the Arizona State University professor, will play critical application roles as noninvasive sensors become cheaper and more robust. Do you agree?

Current and Emerging Regulations for the Sterilization of Medical Devices

Specific to Ethylene Oxide, ISO11135:2014 (Sterilization of health-care products - Ethylene oxide - Requirements for the development, validation and routine control of a sterilization process for medical devices) transition period has expired and is now fully in effect. In this Webinar, consultants will address the upcoming Amendment to Annex E, the methodology for Single Batch Release. Also reviewed will be relevant ISO committee activities and the status of ISO10993/7 (Biological evaluation of medical devices -- Ethylene oxide sterilization residuals), and emerging regulations relating to personnel exposure to EO.
