Professors to Develop Novel Magnetic Field Sensor Technology


University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering researchers are attempting to develop novel magnetic field sensor technology key in the creation of a low-cost system to map magnetic objects quickly and accurately. The development of these cost-efficient, highly-sensitive magnetic nanodevices could have wide-ranging impact on everything from medical diagnostics to national defense.

Engineering Professors Among Select Few to Receive State ARP Funding


Seven facutly members from the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering in May received grants totaling more than $500,000 from the Norman Hackerman Advanced Research Program.

ARP is a competitive, peer-reviewed grant program funding scientific and engineering research projects of faculty members at Texas higher education institutions. Funding given through the program is administered by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

A tabletop system capable of screening tens of thousands of drug candidates in an hour and a tool that can provide a foolproof cancer diagnosis with miniscule quantities of tissue obtained through non-invasive means are just two possible outcomes of research being conducted by a team of professors with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering.

First Graduate Research Conference Deemed a Success for ECE

Approximately 40 graduate students in the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering's electrical and computer engineering department (ECE) presented their work at the department’s first Graduate Research Conference held recently at the Texas Learning and Computation Center, more commonly known as “TLC2” (pronounced TLC-squared) in the Phillip Guthrie Hoffman building. Seventy-eight people attended the internal conference, including 51 graduate students and 27 faculty members.

UH Technology Holds Promise for Multibillion Dollar Data Storage Industry

Imagine storing the entire Library of Congress on a Palm Pilot, or storing 1,000 movies on a 2-inch disk.

These are the kinds of the futuristic goals that could become feasible if UH engineers are successful in their bid to create the first nano-patterned medium recording (N-PMR) at the scale of one terabyte per square inch and explore the physical limits of magnetic data storage in units only four nanometers in size.

Nanotech Experts To Gather in Houston in April 2005

World experts in nanotechnology will gather in Houston next April to attend the Second Conference on Nanoscale Devices & System Integration (NDSI’05) sponsored by IEEE Nanotechnology Council and the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering. The NDSI’05 will be held at the Warwick Hotel on April 4-6, 2005.

Seagate Technology Donates Magnetometer System to Center for Nanomagnetic Systems

Dmitri Litvinov, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, is one of many University of Houston engineering faculty and students who will benefit from the recent donation of a state-of-the-art LakeShore Vibrating Sample Magnetometer system to the UH Cullen College of Engineering.
