A Configurable Terasample-per-second Imaging System for Optical SETI
A new instrument for conducting astronomical searches for nanosecond-scale optical pulses has been designed, built, and is now operating at Oak Ridge Observatory in Harvard, MA. The Advanced All-sky Camera, based on the ...
Reducing Power Loss, Cost and Complexity of SoC Power Delivery Using Integrated 3-Level Voltage Regulators
Traditional methods of system-on-chip (SoC) power management based on dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) is limited by 1) cores/IP blocks sharing a voltage domain provided by off-chip voltage regulators (VR) and ...
Optical Manipulation and Sensing with Silicon Photonics
Optical trapping enables the non-contact manipulation of micro and nanoparticles with extremely high precision. Recent research on integrated optical trapping using the evanescent fields of photonic devices has opened up ...
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 ...
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 ...
