Passive and Compact Liquid Metal Heat Switch

— Technology Description

Researchers in Patricia Weisensee’s lab at Washington University have developed a compact liquid metal heat switch with a passive mechanism to control the thermal management system of spacecraft. Unlike other switch mechanisms, the liquid metal version produces high co…

Chaotic Optomechanical Resonators

— Background: Chaos is considered hypersensitive to conditions of a system and is often thought to be unpredictable and difficult to explain. However, recent work has shown that chaos can be added as noise to improve amplification of weak signals through stochastic resonance. Stochastic resonance has …
