Smart Contact Lens

Towards a Smart Contact Lens

The goal of this work is to develop a wearable head-up display. Our research will set a path the way towards functional microsystems that will superimpose information, via light, over a person’s field of view. In doing so, it overcomes the enigma of augmented reality, a known grand challenge for engineering today. With the ability to actualize augmented reality (AR), advancements in numerous applications will unfold. Incorporation of AR could be seen in various area, such as education, training, navigation, and cross-cultural communication. It could not only revolutionize human-machine-interface, but they could also bridge the gap between patients and healthcare professionals.

Magnetic Refrigeration Technology

Next Generation Refrigeration Technology: Magnetic Refrigeration with Nanoparticles

In the advancement of alternative energy sources, and the critical importance of the global warming, magnetic refrigeration is a promising energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology to replace conventional vapor-compression techniques. Our research aims to design, develop, and implement the first scalable commercially viable compressor-free magnetic refrigerator system.
