Quotes

"The goal is to develop mathematical relationships that allow scientists to calculate the biomass of the phytoplankton from optical signals measured from space, and thus to be able to monitor how ocean phytoplankton change from year to year and figure out what causes these changes" Behrenfeld said
"In our new technique, we use controlled heating via laser illumination of the nanoantennas to change the plasmonic response instantaneously, which shows an innovative but easy way to fabricate spatially changing plasmonic structures and thus opens a new avenue in the field of nanotech-based biomedical technologies and nano optics" said Abdul Bhuiya, a co-author and member of the research team
"Thoughtful selection, by the architectural engineer, in the initial stages of the design process, can reduce environmental impact related to the construction process" says Matthew Trussoni, assistant professor in practice, at the UM College of Engineering and corresponding author of the study
"We recognize the value these people bring to our business and work closely with them to help them invest in their people and technology."
