Food safety is always a pressing concern for consumers, manufacturers, and retailers alike. In recent years, there has been an increased focus on the role of UV light in food safety. UV light has proven to kill bacteria and other contaminants on food surfaces. [...]
Forensic investigators and researchers utilize a variety of light sources to examine the evidence found at a crime scene. Among a plethora of light sources, Ultraviolet (UV) light, in particular, has gained a positive reputation for efficient and effective examination of biologically contaminated evidence. As [...]
Technological advancements have left their imprints on almost every industry across the globe — from healthcare to so-called legacy industries (retail, construction, and hospitality). The biotechnology industry is no exception. One of the recent technological breakthroughs in the world of biotechnology has been the integration [...]
The United States Postal Service (USPS) ships over 160 billion packages and letters every year. These whopping numbers reflect that a more significant percentage of the U.S. population is [surprisingly] still using postal services, indicating that manual labor is insufficient to handle the postal processes [...]
Filters are devices that allow specific stuff to pass through them and reject or block the rest. In the context of optical communication, optical filters are used for pretty much the same thing. Optical filters promote the transmission of different wavelengths while absorbing those that [...]
The sawmill industry is one of the countries key industries. Lumber is a primary raw material in a wide range of manufacturing & construction. […]

Technological advancements have relieved the farmers from such physically demanding and time-consuming tasks. The farms and barns have transformed into modern spaces as they are now outfitted with high-end cameras, [...]
In the first three parts of the series “Drones at Work,” we looked at how Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or drones are being used in industries such as agriculture, construction, and wildlife biology around the world. The final segment of this series discusses the role [...]
Parts one and two of “Drones at work” discussed the use of drones in agriculture and surveying, respectively. But did you know that researchers are also using thermal sensor-equipped drones to count animal populations? […]
