Miniature Ion Accelerator
A miniature ion accelerator that can scale to very high beam power and enables ultra-compact and low cost applications of charge particle beams for semiconductor manufacturing, homeland security screening, plasma heating, mass spectrometers, and more.
Semiconductor Material Fabrication
A technology to fabricate large crystals and large volumes of mithrene (silver benzeneselenolate), the first bulk material designed to express monolayer properties in its as-synthesized state. Mithrene is a direct-band-gap semiconductor with discrete inorganic and organic layers. Its tunable optical qualities holds promise in optoelectronics.
Single Crystalline III-V Semiconuctor Growth Below 300C on Any Substrate
A technology that reduces the cost and processing complexity for materials key to photovoltaic, optoelectronic, and electronic applications, including flexible electronics. The ability to grow the materials with user-defined geometries and dimentions is achieved via pre-patterning the group III element followed by subsequent growth with the group V element intriduced via the vapor phase.
Narrow Band Gap Conjugated Polymers
New polymer compounds and preparation methods for organic semiconductors applied to light harvesting applications, LEDs, electrochromics, energy storage, and more.
Energy Efficient, High Performance Computing
Collective Memory Transfers for Multi-Core Processors
A new hardware component demonstrated to reduce execution time for reading and writing distributed data arrays by 40% to increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption in high performance supercomputers and chip multiprocessors.
Optimized, Energy Efficient Prefetcher Hardware Architecture
A purely hardware last-level collective prefetcher that improves execution time by 5.5% on average, increases DRAM bandwidth by 9% – 18%, decreases DRAM rank energy by 6%, produces 27% more timely prefetches, and increases coverage by 25% at minimum.
Green Wave: Energy Efficient HPC Design
An energy efficient computing platorm that can perform Reverse Time Migration functions at a fraction of the power required for current systems. Green Wave demonstrated an 11-fold improvement in RTM code performance for seismic imaging applications over conventional x86 clusters and a 3.5x improvement over GPU clusters.
