Congratulations to Meisam and Adam (Moghaddam Group) on New Publication!

Congratulations to IMG Members Meisam Habibi Matin and Adam Kriz, and Dr. Saeed Moghaddam on their recent journal publication in Applied Thermal Engineering! Titled “Annular liquid film thermohydraulic and intermittent dryout in microchannel flow boiling,” this work fully resolves the intermittent dryout process in annular liquid film flow and uses interfacial shear stress to predict flow regime transition.

Ph.D. Defense: Next-Generation High-Channel-Density Implant-Connector Technology

Event date: 
Thu, 11/10/2022 - 10:00am

For several decades implantable bioelectronic neural interfaces have provided significant health benefits for patients suffering from various neurological diseases, deficits, or injuries. As the channel counts have increased, often so to do the therapeutic benefits of neuromodulation-based therapy. However, the lack of development of implantable connector technology for high-channel-count implants is limiting their successful development and translation to clinical trials. Existing commercial implant connector technology is limited to low channel counts (8 ch/lead).
