HaBIC Seminar Series - EMR: use it or lose it

The collection of biomedical data is essential for both patient care and research. 247, uncomplicated availability of this data improves safety of individual patients and supports researchers in their work. In the present digital era, Electronic M...

Passive Radar: An Electromagnetically Green Technology

Most modern radars are active, meaning that they transmit radio signals explicitly to accommodate their sensing objectives. This is analogous to carrying a torch on a dark night: the transmitted electromagnetic energy (light) illuminates the scene...

Dark Matter and Gravity: Searching for missing mass in the Stawell gold mine

Einstein’s General Theory of relativity provides an exceptionally accurate theory for gravity and matter at the largest scales. But observations of the way stars move subject to gravity in the galaxies show there is more gravity that can be accou...

Einstein’s Gravity: Black Holes, Dark Matter and Gravitational Lensing

The General Theory of Relativity describes how mass distorts how we observe space and time. Two spectacular examples of this are provided through gravitational lensing and the predictions of black holes. Gravitational lenses provide our strongest ...
