Department of Electrical Engineering, SUNY University at Buffalo, NY | Department of Materials Science, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.
Scientists of these Universities have developed a new sensing technology that uses Raman spectroscopy. The technology they are developing – a universal substrate for SERS – is a unique and, potentially, revolutionary feature. It allows one to rapidly identify and measure chemical and biological molecules using a broadband nanostructure that traps wide range of light. The advancement aims to improve the ability to detect trace amounts of molecules in diseases, chemical warfare agents, fraudulent paintings, environmental contaminants and more.

Deep Creek I Geothermal Power Plant via Native Resource Development, LLC.
A Native American owned small business, holds a geothermal lease on an 1800-acre property located six miles northwest of Preston, Idaho. NER retained a credentialed, disinterested team of geothermal geologists, which in May 2014 confirmed that aquifer temperatures at the site exceed 300 F at 6500 to 7500 feet. This prognosis is highly favorable for development of a flash/binary, electrical power plant. NER seeks to develop a 24.9MW binary power plant.
