UT Arlington In The News

A new way to protect

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

A UT Arlington team says recently identified radiation detection properties of a light-emitting nanostructure built in their lab could open doors for homeland security and medical advances, according to HealthCanal, The Tech Journal, Bio-Medicine and Nanotechnology Now. In a paper to be published in the Oct. 1 issue of Optics Letters, Physics Professor Wei Chen and his co-authors describe their new method. Chen is co-director of UT Arlington’s Security Advances Via Applied Nanotechnology, or SAVANT, Center. SAVANT co-director and Physics Professor Andrew Brandt is a co-author on the paper, as well as Alex Weiss, chair of the physics department, and Rasool Kenarangui, senior lecturer in the College of Engineering’s Department of Electrical Engineering.
