Smart Fabric
General functionalization of fibers and fabrics using solution-synthesized quantum nanowires may be possible with this invention. Conformal coatings onto individual fibers can be achieved through certain physical and chemical approaches. Resulting nanowire-functionalized textiles consist of dense, conformal coatings and can be characterized for the...

Tunnel Field Effect Transistor (TFET)-based Well Capacity Adjustment in Active Pixel Sensor (APS) for Enhanced High Dynamic Range (HDR)
Asymmetrical conduction of emerging transistors is employed to circumvent the sub-threshold operation of the reset transistor in active pixel sensors where dynamic well capacity adjustment is applied to extend the dynamic range. In current CMOS technology, this sub-threshold operation adds spatial-temporal noise on the pixel signal and gives rise t...

Shape-Engineered Nanoscale Thermocouples
Infrared detectors can be created using antennas attached to a nanowire thermocouple formed out of a single metal. LWIR (Long-wave Infrared ), Thermal imaging (especially sensitive room-temperature thermal detection, i.e. black-body detection), and hyperspectral applications are possible by forming a thermopile out of the devices. Manufacturing i...

Malley-Derivative Sensor and Probe
With a single non-intrusive instrument, wavefront derivatives and wavefront convective velocities can be measured directly; and these can be combined to yield Optical Path Difference (OPD) as a function of time. The Malley-Probe is very useful if you need to :Perform measurement of a fluid in a not friendly environment (Hypersonic, water)Measure th...
