METHOD FOR GENERATION OF CONTROLLED THz WAVES

We present a method for the generation of THz pulses with tailored temporal shape from nonlinear metasurfaces. The method is based on single-cycle THz emission by the metasurface inclusions. We show that the spatial amplitude and phase structure of the nonlinear response is mapped to the temporal shape of pulses emitted at certain angles. We […] Read More >

Microfluidic Flow-meter and Sensor for Drug Delivery Applications

The current structure of medical pumps does not allow real-time measurement of different parameters of drug delivery in general and low flow rates (μL/min) in particular. The current structure wherein only indirect measurements are performed (commonly pressure) makes it difficult to detect failures (e.g. air bubbles, occlusion, infiltration) in real-time on the one hand and […] Read More >

Enhanced Multi-Plex Biosensing based on Spatio-Temporal Control of Multiple Electrokinetically Preconcentrated Plugs of Bioparticles

As is evident from the lateral-flow-assay (LFA) that became so popular with detection of Corona virus, there is an urgent need to increase the sensitivity of detection of both point-of-care (POC) and self-testing (for example, used by individuals at home) devices. Lateral flow kits result in relatively low detection limit as only a small fraction […] Read More >

Explainable AI (XAI)

One important challenge in machine learning is the “black box” problem, in which an artificial intelligence reaches a result without any humans being able to explain why. This problem is typically present in deep artificial neural networks, in which the hidden layers are impenetrable. To tackle this problem, our researchers have introduced the notion of explainable […] Read More >

Shape Sensing of Multimode Optical Fibers

Fiber optic shape sensing (FOSS) is an emerging technology which uses optical fibers for real-time 3-dimensional (3D) sensing of the shape of objects in space. It has many advantages with respect to competing technologies. These include ease of installation, flexibility and compactness, immunity to electromagnetic interference, low weight, compatibility with harsh environments, compatibility with in-vivo […] Read More >

Visual Data Transfer Between the End and Side of a Multimode Fiber

It is well known that light propagation in optical fibers is accompanied by random omnidirectional scattering. This type of scattering is called ‘Rayleigh scattering’ and is due to small inhomogeneities in the fiber core. The small fraction of coherent guided light that escapes outside the cladding of the fiber forms a speckle pattern. While works […] Read More >

A Lensless Polarization Camera

Polarization imaging is a technique that creates a pixel-map of the polarization state in a scene. Although invisible to the human eye (and for most conventional cameras), polarization can assist various sensing and computer vision tasks. Existing polarization cameras acquire the additional modality using either spatial or temporal multiplexing, which increases the camera volume, weight, […] Read More >

Low Frequency Nanobubbles-Enhanced Ultrasound Mechanotherapy for Noninvasive Cancer Surgery

A unique theranostic ultrasound-based technology for low-energy mechanical ablation of tissues. Noninvasive ultrasound surgery can be achieved using focused ultrasound to locally affect the targeted site without damaging intervening tissues. Mechanical ablation and histotripsy use short and intense acoustic pulses to destroy the tissue via a purely mechanical effect. Here we show that coupled with […] Read More >

Novel Class of Turn-ON Near-Infrared Probes for Diagnosis and Imaging of Inflammation and Cancer

Complete tumor removal during surgery has a great impact on patient survival. To that end, the surgeon should detect the tumor, remove it and validate that there are no residual cancer cells left behind. Residual cells at the incision margin of the tissue removed during surgery are associated with tumor recurrence and poor prognosis for […] Read More >
