Fine-Tuning Touch Technology

Fine-Tuning Touch Technology

UD’s Charles Dhong gets $1.9 million to develop new tactile aids Bumps and lines make up touch-based technology such as Braille. But the human sense of touch is keen enough to detect differences that are much smaller. Research by Charles Dhong and his group at the...
Controlling Catalysts

Controlling Catalysts

UD researchers report new way to boost catalyst activity Catalysts are workhorses that help reactions occur. Put to work, they transform starting materials, such as fossil fuels, biomass or even waste, into products and fuels with minimal energy. Researchers in...
