Materials Science is About To Get Crazy -

Senators are asking the FDA to clarify how it regulates medical apps -

We’re very likely on the cusp of a mobile health revolution, and it’s important for developers and consumers/patients that the role of FDA in regulating medical apps be clarified and transparent. While innovation must be fostered, safety is paramount.

Last week, I attended SPIE Medical Imaging in San Diego, where I presented a poster detailing our recent collaboration with NanoX Japan on a novel X-ray detector concept. SAPHIRE (scintillator avalanche photoconductor with high resolution emitter readout) optically couples a scintillator to an amorphous selenium HARP (high/gain avalanche rushing photoconductor) layer biased with sufficiently high electric field to induce avalanche gain, allowing for very low-dose performance. High resolution electron-beam readout is achieved by a field emitter array.

Color Oracle -

A handy utility for designing with color-blind viewers in mind. Useful for designing scientific posters.
