What Would You Fight For? Fighting to Walk Again
James Schmiedeler, associate professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, builds and conducts research with biped robots. Even though physical therapy experience is conspicuously absent from his CV, as an engineer, he sees parallels. “It’s not too hard as an engineer to look at the human body and think of it as a mechanical system, and if you include the nerves, an electromechanical system,” says Schmiedeler. “By attempting to improve the control of robots to conduct smoother, more human-like locomotion, we also hope to better understand where the deficits lie in helping human patients relearn healthy walking.”

Notre Dame Researchers Open Path to New Generation of Optical Devices
Cameras, telescopes and microscopes are optical devices that measure and manipulate electromagnetic radiation [light]. Being able to control the light in these devices provides more information through a better “picture” of what is occurring. Specifically, controlling light on small scales could lead to improved optical sources for applications that span health, homeland security and industry.
