Purdue streak camera innovation could capture actions that last femtoseconds or less

Colton Fruhling, postdoctoral researcher (left), and Mustafa Goksu Ozlu, graduate research assistant in Purdue University’s Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, analyze data created by simulated tests of a streak camera. The patent-pending technology uses all-optical mechanisms, which have the potential to record actions that last a femtosecond, or one-quadrillionth of a second. […]

Wabash Internship Program Seeks Purdue Problem Solvers

Recruiting Purdue University students as summer interns has made a measurable impact on Greater Lafayette’s only Fortune 1000 company. Now there are even more student opportunities at Wabash, which is launching a co-op pilot program during the 2023-24 academic year. Kyle Richmann Why Wabash values Purdue students Wabash is a world-class manufacturer of advanced engineered […]

Purdue thermal imaging innovation allows AI to see through pitch darkness like broad daylight

HADAR, or heat-assisted detection and ranging, combines thermal physics, infrared imaging and machine learning to pave the way to fully passive and physics-aware machine perception. Research led by Zubin Jacob, the Elmore Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and research scientist Fanglin Bao of Purdue University has been published as the cover story of […]
