Biofidelic Model of Human Cranium and Intracranial Contents

INTRODUCTION Brain injury researchers and human protection engineers need a tool to investigate how mechanical loading influences brain motion, strain and displacement. A new test object must be able to quantify metrics of soft-tissue/brain tissue disruption from head injury. Current testing for head injury is crash test dummies. This model determines...

A Compact Design for Wireless Powered Resistive Senor

COMPACT DESIGN FOR WIRELESS POWERED RESISTIVE SENSORSVALUE PROPOSITIONWireless sensors are used to measure different parameters that could not previously be measured. Many wireless sensors on the market today use inductance to measure parameters but there are limited measures that can be done using inductance. Resistive measurements rely on a resistive...

Surface TSPO in blood cells: Biomarker of peripheral and brain inflammation

INTRODUCTIONTranslocator Protein 18kDa (TSPO) is a nuclear encoded outer mitochondrial membrane protein that is ubiquitously expressed by most host cells. Initially, TSPO was a diazepam target, but it has also been referred to as an ‘orphan protein searching for a function’. Since the generation of these knockouts, TSPO has been determined...

A Multiband Sensing Unit

Executive SummaryWireless sensing can be utilized to monitor multiple targets in various fields, including biomedical, civil engineering, automation, aerospace, and defense. Conventional radio waves do not travel well through conductive mediums, such as metal and sea water. This poses an issue for certain applications, like monitoring the corrosion...

Position-Sensitive Radiation Detector

Executive SummaryGaseous ionization detectors are capable of measuring the energy and location of ionizing radiation. MSU researchers have developed an improved method of integrating multiple detection methods into a single parallel plate detector. By a novel means of arranging these various sensing methods, the x, y, and z coordinates of the ionizing...

A Gating Grid Driver for Time Projection Chamber

Executive SummaryTime Projection Chambers (TPCs) are uniquely useful in analyzing nuclear reactions and resulting particles. These devices rely on fast gating systems to allow or deny entry of particles into the detection area; without which they would not be functional. MSU researchers have developed a novel gating grid driver system for TPCs. Due...

RF Detection of Analytes

Executive SummaryDue to public health concerns since the 1920’s, the U.S. dairy industry is federally required to be monitored and treated for bacterial contamination. Most municipalities mandate pasteurization to reduce the number of viable pathogens likely to cause disease. Pre- and post-pasteurized milk is often tested for contamination via...
