The UT Arlington Research Institute (UTARI) is a research and development unit of The University of Texas at Arlington specializing in applying cutting-edge technologies to real-world engineering problems.
UTARI welcomes outside researchers and industry leaders to use our equipment and tap our expertise. We also frequently host symposiums, consortia, and events to bring together our partners to focus on specific issues.
UTARI and Dallas-based Skyven Technologies have been awarded a NSF's SBIR program grant to build and test a Phase 1 prototype of a novel optics system for concentrating sunlight more than 1,000 times the usual amplification.
"The entire hydrocephalus community is invested in seeing this research project yield results." said Michael Illions, VP and Dir of Advocacy, Pediatric Hydrocephalus Foundation. "A better shunt and less brain surgeries equal a much better outcome for those living with hydrocephalus."
