Stretchable Wireless Sensor Could Monitor Healing of Cerebral Aneurysms

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-36149
Published 2020-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The stretchable sensor, which operates without batteries, would be wrapped around stents or diverters implanted to control blood flow in vessels affected by the aneurysms. To reduce costs and accelerate manufacturing, fabrication of the stretchable sensors uses aerosol jet 3D printing to create conductive silver traces on elastomeric substrates. The 3D additive manufacturing technique allows production of very small electronic features in a single step, without using traditional multi-step lithography processes in a cleanroom. The device is believed to be the first demonstration of aerosol jet 3D printing to produce an implantable, stretchable sensing system for wireless monitoring.

Celebrating Women in Engineering & Science

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-36196
Published 2020-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Throughout history, women have made extensive contributions in many areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We spoke with five women who lead their fields in engineering and science to get their views on the gender gap in these areas and how each overcame roadblocks on their way to success. They share a common thread: the “yes, I can” mentality led them to become influential leaders for girls and women.

Understanding the Implications of 5G Cellular

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-36152
Published 2020-03-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The hype machine is in full swing with the latest standard in mobile telephony — 5G. This is the fifth generation of wireless, mobile broadband communications. It should not be confused with 5 GHz Wi-Fi, which is sometimes erroneously referenced as 5G. This 5G is a whole new ballgame and promises to be a revolution in how we live our daily lives — not merely an evolution of versions past.
