Personal Data Produced By IoT Devices

Given that the Internet of Things (IoT) can produce tremendous amounts of data, security is a major concern. In addition to the initial creation of the data on an individual device, data is sent to centralized systems that collect and store it for future use. Although the data provided by IoT devices is certainly valuable […]

The Finite Element Method Continues to Drive Innovation in Photonics

The optics and photonics fields are creating groundbreaking applications for astronomy, telecommunications, sensing, chemistry, biomedical research & development. Recently, researchers from Pennsylvania State University demonstrated how metasurfaces with unparalleled controllability of light may be able to transform traditional optics. To do so, they used a simulation that applied the finite element method (FEM). As discussed […]
