The system was originally designed to help find a way to separate water and oil to treat the mixture of briny water and crude oil in oil wells. When droplets are small and thoroughly mixed with water, it can be hard for usual electrostatic methods to be effective. Instead, the researchers used surfaces that were photoresponsive, which meant the water could be modified when exposed to light.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
