The organization was founded in 1972, since then, they’ve contributed to the 144, 606, 491 pounds… read more

Underwater Sensors

Swimming with sensors

Scientific breakthroughs in nanotechnology have taken electronics to the next level by making the circuit smaller and smarter, but a professor at the University of California is proving that he can design circuits which can be pushed, pulled and even used under water. Thin film electrochemical sensors are directly printed on a flexible wetsuit by the team led by Joseph Wang paving the way for water resistive electronic sensors which has a potential application under water. With funding from the U.S. Navy and with the help of some members of his team who like to surf, Wang and team designed… read more
