Researcher · Experimental studies of pristine graphenedevices currently rely on the fact that the graphene crystallites can be visible under optical… · More microscopes when the underlying substrate is engineered to exhibit high contrast. Here, we present that graphene can be visualized not only on a dielectric substrate but also on a crystalline Si surface of a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafer (SIMOX and Bonded) with thicknesses of Si ∼70nm and buried oxide ∼140nm, using monochromatic illumination.
Researcher · Hailed as the new "wonder material," graphene is being tapped by an international research team to help overcome issues… · More associated with increasing the storage density and speed of electronic memory devices.
Electronic memory devices, which store information, are increasingly expected to provide not only greater storage density, but also faster access to information. As storage density increases, however, power consumption and unwanted heat generation also increase, and the fidelity of accessing the memory is frequently diminished. Various platforms exist to overcome these hurdles, according to a team led by University of California at Los Angeles researchers, which they describe in detail in the AIP's Applied Physics Letters. A spin-transfer-torque device, for example, relies on a clever technique for storing and accessing information in a magnetic dipole moment, which is similar to a hard drive. Information can be stored in a ferroelectric material in the form of an electric dipole moment in a class of devices known as "ferroelectric-field-effect-transistors" or more commonly as FFETs. For this research, graphene is used to write and read the electric dipole moments of an underlying ferroelectric material. And the very good news, the researchers report, is that this graphene-FFET has a high fidelity and low operating voltage. Future work will focus on improving the speed of the device's performance.
Analog Circuit Designer · Intel Atom is the brand name for a line of ultra-low-voltage IA-32 and x86-64 CPUs (or microprocessors) from Intel,… · More originally designed in 45 nm complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) with subsequent models, codenamed Cedar, using a 32 nm process. Atom is mainly used in netbooks, nettops, embedded applications ranging from health care to advanced robotics, and mobile Internet devices (MIDs).
In December 2012, Intel launched the 64-bit Centerton family of Atom CPUs, designed specifically for use in servers. Centerton adds features previously unavailable in Atom processors, such as Intel VT virtualization technology and support for ECC memory. On 4 September 2013 Intel launched a 22 nm successor to Centerton, codenamed Avoton.
What I Do
I'm an entrepreneur. I believe in engineering, science, and technology, taking innovations, ideas, and applications, from scratch to reality. This is how the world is changed, one project at a time.
I've co-authored many research and conference papers throughout my undergraduate and graduate years. Been an essential key player at Intel in low-power microprocessor designs, many of which you're probably using now. Launched Konost, a start-up I've taken from scratch paper to reality.
However, the achievements closest to my heart are winning my regional 6th grade science fair by sending electrical signals through a flashlight. Running the LA and San Francisco marathons.
I have known Bob since graduate school. He was a bright, innovative and supremely motivated student. Now working with him to make our dream come true has been a revelation. He brings great vision, planning and leadership skills to our team at Konost
