A Brain-Computer Interface That Works Wirelessly

Full Story - MIT Technology Review - Antonio Regalado on January 14, 2015 Researchers at Brown University and Blackrock Microsystems early in 2015, commercialized a wireless device that can be attached to a person’s skull and transmit via radio thought commands collected from a brain implant.  The device was developed by a consortium, called BrainGate, which is based at Brown and was among the first to place implants in the brains of paralyzed people and show that electrical signals emitted b...

Electronic–Photonic System on a Single Chip

Posted on March 7, 2016 Colorado Edu Journal of Nature One of the problems faced in data transported across short electrical wires is the limited bandwidth and power density, which creates a performance bottleneck in the semiconductor microchips.  This report covers how a scientist team has demonstrated these limitations can be overcome by using optical communications based on chip-scale electronic–photonic systems enabled by silicon-based nanophotonic devices that is an electroni...
