Lighter, Cheaper Radio Wave Device Could Transform Telecommunications Researchers at the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have achieved a milestone in modern wireless and cellular telecommunications, creating a radically smaller, more efficient radio wave circulator that could be used in cellphones and other wireless devices, as reported in the latest issue of Nature Physics. http://www.utexas.edu/news/2014/11/10/radio-wave-device-alu/
Prof. David Spencer’s Prox-1 project is getting ready to launch
Research conducted by AE professor David Spencer is getting ready to blast off.
As the principal investigator for the Prox-1 mission, Spencer anticipates the launch of a Georgia Tech-designed spacecraft (and an attached CubeSat) sometime within the next 18 months. Both components will be part of the multi-satellite payload launched by SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket. http://www.ae.gatech.edu/node/1444
