Thermal Ground Plane For Cooling Chips And Semiconductor Devices

Efficient cooling of semiconductor and integrated circuit devices is critical to their operation. Improvements in cooling allow further technological advancement. Titanium is a unique material suited well for harsh environments and is robust and shock resistant.

A Video Fingerprinting Method For Duplicate Detection

Copyright infringements and data piracy have become serious concerns for the ever growing online video repositories in recent years. The uploaded videos on commercial sites are mainly textually tagged. Tags are of little help in monitoring the content and preventing copy-right infringements. The watermarking approach and the fingerprinting approach have been used for detecting such infringements, however, there is still the need for fast algorithms for duplicate detection in large databases.

Quantum Computation With Quantum Dots And Terahertz Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics

A quantum computer processes quantum information, which is stored in "quantum bits" (qubits). The recent explosion of interest in quantum computation can be traced to Shor's demonstration in 1994 that a quantum computer could exponentially speed up factorization of integers. This application is of great interest in commerce and national defense because the difficulty in factoring large integers is the basis for public-key encryption. Algorithms that dramatically speed up other common tasks, such as searching a large database, have also been demonstrated.
