Sensor research underscores Clemson University’s leadership in technology for extreme environments

October 23, 2019

CLEMSON — Clemson University researchers are developing three new sensors designed to withstand two of humanity’s harshest environments, the intense heat inside power plants and the tremendous pressure at the bottom of hydraulic fracturing wells.

The research, led by Hai Xiao, is aimed at advancing the technology behind fossil fuels, which produce much of the nation’s power. The ultimate goal is to generate power more efficiently while lowering emissions and using fewer resources.

Xiao said the research underscores that Clemson is staking a claim as a national leader in developing new technology for extreme environments, including application, data, manufacturing, materials, modeling and sensors.
