‘Near-zero-power’ Temperature Sensor Could Make Wearables, Smart Home Devices Less Power-hungry

June 30, 2017

…only 113 picowatts of power — 628 times lower power than the state of the art and about 10 billion times smaller than a watt. This “near-zero-power” temperature sensor could extend the battery life of wearable or implantable devices that monitor body temperature, smart home monitoring systems, Internet of Things…

Copperizing the Complexity of Superconductivity

January 26, 2021

New study suggests that how electrons interact in solids may be key to understanding the emerging phases of quantum materials.

Magnetic Fields Provide a New Way to Communicate Wirelessly

September 1, 2015

…human body. The new technology could offer a lower power and more secure way to communicate information between wearable electronic devices, providing an improved alternative to existing wireless communication systems, researchers said.

New Chip for Waking Up Small Wireless Devices Could Extend Battery Life

November 12, 2019

A new power saving chip could significantly reduce or eliminate the need to replace batteries in Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wearables. The so-called wake-up receiver wakes up a device only when it needs to communicate and perform its function, saving on power use.

Wireless, Battery-free Electronic ‘Stickers’ Gauge Forces Between Touching Objects

October 10, 2023

Engineers developed electronic “stickers” that measure the force exerted by one object upon another. The force stickers are wireless, run without batteries and fit in tight spaces, making them versatile for a wide range of applications, from surgical robots to smart implants and inventory tracking.

A New Self-Powered Ingestible Sensor Opens New Avenues for Gut Research

November 30, 2022

Engineering researchers have developed a battery-free, pill-shaped ingestible biosensing system designed to provide continuous monitoring in the intestinal environment. It gives scientists the ability to monitor gut metabolites in real time, which wasn’t possible before.

UC San Diego Leads Researchers to Demonstrate First Single-Photon Generation from a Silicon Chip

April 30, 2012

An international consortium of researchers has overcome an important barrier to the generation of single photons using a tiny, chip-scale device constructed from the most widely used material underpinning modern electronics: silicon.

Researchers create tunable photon-pair spectrum using room-temperature quantum optics silicon chip

December 15, 2014

A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego have demonstrated a way to emit and control quantum light generated using a chip made from silicon—one of the most widely used materials for modern electronics.

Opioid treatment tracking startup celebrates string of successes

April 27, 2022

CARI Health, a startup in the Institute for the Global Entrepreneur’s MedTech Accelerator, was named a Connect “Cool Company” on the heels of winning the $300,000 grand prize at the San Diego Angel Conference.

Smart Car Meets Smart Charger at UC San Diego

April 10, 2014

…Publications Call it an electronic meeting of the minds: Smart cars will meet smart chargers in the nation’s first demonstration of the next generation of “Smart Cars.” Known as the Intelligent Charging Project, the California Energy Commission-funded endeavor brings together smart fortwo electric drives from Daimler, electric vehicle charging stations…
