ACTIVE MEMORY DATA REORGANIZATION ENGINE

The advent of many-core processors with a greatly reduced amount of per-core memory has shifted the bottleneck in computing from FLOPs to memory. A new, complex memory/storage hierarchy is emerging, with persistent memories offering greatly expanded capacity, and augmented by DRAM/SRAM cache and...

Actuators Made From Nanoporous Materials

Actuators convert an external electrical signal into a mechanical force by changing their dimensions. Well-known examples for such devices are piezoelectric actuators where the dimensional changes are caused by the polarization of the whole material. The effect is used in various industrial and...

ADAPTIVE OPTICS FOR RETINAL IMAGING

Background Understanding and visualizing the interior landscape of a patient’s eye can be critical in both the diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases. Visual information on the health of key disease and injury indicators such as the optic nerve, blood vessels, and retina can be derived from...
