Top researchers from across the country are developing new technology to control an unusual property of light that could make it possible to channel through fog, murky water and thermal turbulence, potentially leading to new ways of communicating and gathering data. The research team is led by Eric Johnson, the PalmettoNet Endowed Chair in Optoelectronics at Clemson University, and includes researchers from six universities. The team has received a $7.5 million grant to fund the project through the Office of Naval Research’s Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI).
When you’re passionate about your research, you enjoy an opportunity to talk about it with your colleagues. When that opportunity is only three minutes long, and you have to make your research understandable to everyone, it’s a little more challenging. For the audience, though, it’s a lot more fun. Clemson’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition […]
