Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health The effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health is the subject of debate, especially as it pertains to portable wireless devices. Notre Dame researchers are studying ways to improve device performance without increasing radiation levels.
Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health
Exploring the Physical Limits to Computation Researchers in the Center for Nano Science and Technology are laying the groundwork for smaller, faster, and more efficient electronic devices by exploring energy dissipation in nanoscale electron devices and discovering new ways to represent information and perform computation.
Exploring the Physical Limits to Computation
Low Energy Systems Technology LEAST, which is led by the University of Notre Dame with nine partner universities, explores new concepts for energy-efficient devices to reduce power in electronic systems.

Notre Dame Wireless Institute: Building a Better Phone
January 25, 2016

Every time an individual uses a cell phone, he absorbs some electromagnetic radiation. Each phone must comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s limits on the specific absorption rate of radiation that is considered safe for the body. The key, according to Notre Dame engineers, is being creative in how a phone’s technology can work within these limits.
