The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) have partnered with Ateneo SOSE/ Manila Observatory scientists for CAMP2Ex, an airborne campaign which aims to study the role of aerosols in weather and climate in the Philippines during the summer monsoon season.
This project will use our patentable gold nanoparticle printable ink formulation and its application in the rapid assessment of quality of agricultural produce using Surface Enhance Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) technique.
In this project, we will continue to investigate theoretical solutions to variants of two NP-Hard computing problems: Consensus Patterns Problem (aka Motif Finding Problem) and Poset Cover.
This project will serve as the important Ateneo counterpart for the recently awarded Royal Society Project “Distributed Fibre Sensing for sustainable cities and action on short-term environmental- shocks”. This funding will increase the support for the number of critical Research Assistants/Engineers (as only one such fulltime position was provided in the funded Royal Society project) as well as enhance the capacity and know-how for architecting and designing optical fiber and waveguide circuits for various applications. A distributed fiber sensor technology will be provided for by University of Southampton partners for use in a vehicular traffic measurement campaign in Ateneo campus with the data for input into a new vehicular flow model.
