Accurate Gamma-Ray Spectroscope for Compositional Analysis of Celestial Bodies

Vanderbilt and Fisk University researchers have developed a new type of gamma ray spectroscope (GRS) that overcomes the limitations of current systems. This type of GRS can be used to accurately determine the subsurface chemical composition of celestial bodies in the solar system.

Dual Interlocked Logic (DIL) Circuit

Vanderbilt researchers have developed a novel combinatorial logic circuit that prevents the propagation of signal glitches such as those caused by radiation-induced transients. The interlocked-feedback circuit accomplishes this without the loss of any speed. The circuit is designed for robustness in both combinatorial and sequential logic applications.

Porous Materials with Active Sites Created via In-Pore Synthesis

Vanderbilt researchers have synthesized porous adsorbent materials for the capture of toxic industrial chemicals. These adsorbent materials have finely dispersed reactive sites that allow for higher adsorption capacities than existing materials. They can be used in filters for the military, homeland security, first responders, and for a wide range of industrial and commercial catalysts to capture toxic gases such as ammonia and sulfur dioxide.

Single Stage, High Performance Transmission Mechanism

A researcher from Vanderbilt University has created a novel single stage transmission with a high transmission ratio that was born from the physics of a coin wobbling as it rolls on a table. This innovation offers a great advantage over existing single stage transmissions in terms of a smaller and lighter weight design, increased efficiency, and a reduction in manufacturing cost.

Electrochemically Actuated Optical Modulator

Vanderbilt University researchers have developed a novel approach for creating dynamic, tunable reflective color displays using an electrochemical modulator. The technology can be implemented into devices requiring low power reflective color displays, such as smart watches and e-readers, and is adaptable for spectral control across a broad spectrum of frequencies from the visible to the far infrared. This technology provides a low power, tunable approach for modulating the optical properties of a material.

Image-guided Probe Device and Software for Non-Superficial Tissues

Vanderbilt researchers have designed a dual-wavelength Raman Spectroscopy (RS) system for in-vivo acquisition of Raman spectra from non-superficial tissues. The spectrograph camera can be connected to a personal computer that uses a custom application for control of spectral readout.
