Prof. Bernard Ghanem Publishes Work on Low-Rank Sparse Coding for Image Classification

Prof. Ghanem recently published a paper entitled “Low-Rank Sparse Coding for Image Classification” in the IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV 2013). In this paper, a low-rank sparse coding (LRSC) method is proposed to exploit local structure information among features in an image for the purpose of robust image-level classification.

An Efficient Biosensor Made of an Electromagnetic Trap and a Magneto-resistive Sensor

Fuquan Li, a PhD student at the Sensing Magnetism and Microsystems laboratory led by Prof. Jürgen Kosel has published a paper titled: "An Efficient Biosensor Made of an Electromagnetic Trap and a Magneto-resistive Sensor​" in Biosensors and Bioelectronics. Magneto-resistive biosensors have been found to be useful because of their high sensitivity, low cost, small size, and direct electrical output. They use super-paramagnetic beads to label a biological target and detect it via sensing the stray field.

An international team of physicists, led by Prof. Andrea Fratalocchi, has demonstrated that chaos can beat order

An international team of physicists, led by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, has demonstrated that chaos can beat order - at least as far as light storage is concerned. The researchers deformed mirrors in order to disrupt the regular light path in an optical cavity and, surprisingly, the resulting chaotic light paths allowed more light to be stored than with ordered paths.

The first practical implementation of electrostatic fractional capacitors using graphene percolated composites developed at KAUST

​​Here at KAUST, a true success story is to be told regarding the development of fractional capacitors, in which the latter was conceived fruitfully based on collaborative efforts between Dr. Amro Elshurafa from the sensors lab​ headed by prof. K.N. Salama (electrical) and Mahmoud Almadhoun from SABIC Corporate Research and Innovation Center, Thuwal, Saudi Arabia working at the the nanomaterials lab headed by prof.  H. Alshareef (materials).
