Hierarchical Temporal Memory: How a New Theory of Neocortex May Lead to Truly Intelligent Machines
12 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Jeff Hawkins
Coaxing computers to perorm basic acts of perception and robotics, let alone high-level thought, has been difficult. No existing computer can recognize pictures, understand language, or navigate through a cluttered room with anywhere near a child's facility. Following nature's example, Jeff...
KIST/PU Infrared and Raman Chemical Imaging of Pharmaceutical Biological Matter
06 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Tom Tague
There have been several advances in instrumentation that now facilitate infrared and Raman imaging. Current Focal-Plane-Array (FPA) detectors are very robust and read out quickly for infrared imaging and fast CCD array detectors are now available for Raman imaging. For example, infrared data...
KIST/PU Ligand-functionalized gold nanorods as theragnostic agents
06 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei
Plasmon-resonant gold nanorods have been examined as multifunctional agents for imaging and photoactivated therapies. Nanorods can be imaged with single-particle sensitivity by two-photon luminescence (TPL) when excited by fs-pulsed laser irradiation, and have been monitored in vivo while...
Electrons in Two Dimensions: Quantum Corrals and Semiconductor Microstructures
04 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric J. Heller
The images generated by a scanning tunneling microscope are iconic. Some of the most famous are Don Eigler’s quantum corrals, which reveal not only the guest atoms on a surface but especially the interference patterns of electrons shuttling back and forth along the surface. To understand the...
New Dimension in Performance: Harnessing 3D Integration Technology
29 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Kerry Bernstein
Despite generation on generation of scaling, computer chips have remained essentially 2-dimensional. Improvements in on-chip wire delay, and in the total number of inputs and outputs has not been able to keep up with improvements to the transistor, and its getting harder and harder to hide it!...
On the Rise of an Electronic Species: Thoughts on the Impending Singularity
The human brain is vastly more complex that our best supercomputers; yet it can be argued that both systems evolve towards common underlying solutions to fundamental compute problems. Biologically-inspired electronic technologies already are enabling new products, and inversely, nano-electronics...
KIST/PU A bi-functional block copolymer hydrogels and micelles for protein and drug delivery
28 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Doo Sung Lee
Novel biodegradable & injectable poly(Î²-amino ester)-poly(Îµ-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(Îµ-caprolactone)-poly(Î²-amino ester)(PAE-PCL-PEG-PCL-PAE) bi-functional, pH/temperature-sensitive, block copolymer hydrogels were prepared and applied to protein and drug delivery. In this...
MCW07 Modeling Molecule-Assisted Transport in Nanotransistors
06 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Kamil Walczak
Molecular electronics faces many problems in practical device implementation, due to difficulties with fabrication and gate-ability. In these devices, molecules act as the main conducting channel. One could imagine alternate device structures where molecules act as quantum dots rather than...
MCW07 Impact of Porphyrin Functional Groups on InAs Gas Sensors
05 Nov 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Garcia
Porphyrin molecules are often used for sensor engineering to improve sensitivity and selectivity to specific analytes. It is important to understand how the porphyrin HOMO-LUMO levels deplete surface states during functionalization of solid state sensors. Additionally, the effect of...
Microscale Ionic Wind for Local Cooling Enhancement
26 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: David B Go
As the electronics industry continues to develop small, highly functional, mobile devices, new methods of cooling are required to manage the thermal requirements of the not only the chip but the entire system. Comfortable skin temperatures, small form factors, and limited power consumption are...
Hexagonal Prism Blue Diode Laser Using Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) Resonances
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: sangho kim
Semiconductor lasers have many important applications, including communication technologies, optical storage, printing, and molecular detection. The range of applications could be broadened significantly if the lasers could be made smaller and with lower threshold currents. Today’s in-plane...
KIST/PU Multiplex Detection of Cell Surface Markers Using Plasmonic Sensors
23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Joseph M K Irudayaraj
Gold nanorod molecular probes (GNrMPs) were designed and fabricated for multiplex identification of cell surface markers in HBECs. Cells were probed directly using dark field microscopy integrated with a spectral imager for simultaneous detection of up to three surface markers. The...
