Vertical Silicon Nanowires for Image Sensor Applications
Conventional image sensors achieve color imaging using absorptive organic dye filters. These face considerable challenges however in the trend toward ever higher pixel densities and advanced imaging methods such as ...
Multi-Agent Systems with Reciprocal Interaction Laws
In this thesis, we investigate a special class of multi-agent systems, which we call reciprocal multi-agent (RMA) systems. The evolution of agents in a RMA system is governed by interactions between pairs of agents. Each ...
Peak Sidelobe Level Distribution Computation for Ad Hoc Arrays using Extreme Value Theory
Extreme Value Theory (EVT) is used to analyze the peak sidelobe level distribution for array element positions with arbitrary probability distributions. Computations are discussed in the context of linear antenna arrays ...
Flight Control of a Millimeter-Scale Flapping-Wing Robot
Flying insects display remarkable maneuverability. Unlike typical airplanes, these insects are able to execute an evasive action, rapidly change their flight speed and direction, or leisurely land on flowers buffeted by ...
Two-Dimensional Plasmonics in Massive and Massless Electron Gases
Plasmonic waves in solid-state are caused by collective oscillation of mobile charges inside or at the surface of conductors. In particular, surface plasmonic waves propagating at the skin of metals have recently attracted ...
Scalable NMR Spectroscopy with Semiconductor Chips
Conventional nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers—the electronic brain that orchestrates and monitors nuclear spin motions—are bulky, expensive, thus, not scalable. In this thesis, we report on scalable ...
