Human-robot Interaction From Real Steel to reality the DISCOVER lab is exploring not only how to make cyber physical systems work more reliably but also how they can learn to interact with their human collaborators.
Human-robot Interaction
Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health The effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health is the subject of debate, especially as it pertains to portable wireless devices. Notre Dame researchers are studying ways to improve device performance without increasing radiation levels.
Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health
Exploring the Physical Limits to Computation Researchers in the Center for Nano Science and Technology are laying the groundwork for smaller, faster, and more efficient electronic devices by exploring energy dissipation in nanoscale electron devices and discovering new ways to represent information and perform computation.
Exploring the Physical Limits to Computation
Low Energy Systems Technology LEAST, which is led by the University of Notre Dame with nine partner universities, explores new concepts for energy-efficient devices to reduce power in electronic systems.
Low Energy Systems Technology
Enhancing the Capabilities of Cyber-Physical Systems Every area of modern life, from mundane household applications to concerns of national security or issues of human health, is affected by cyber-physical systems.

Electron Microscopy Unlocks a Door to a New Era of Discovery
Electron Microscopy Unlocks a Door to a New Era of Discovery
December 14, 2017

The phrase “larger than life” many times throughout history has been applied to describe the impact of scientific discoveries and revolutionary technologies. At the University of Notre Dame, precision instruments and state-of-the-art facilities, such as the electron microscopy core within the Integrated Imaging Facility, are beginning to fill in gaps and reveal details that are propelling science beyond what is known.
