This invention uses a photoactive element between graphene electrodes to create a photovoltaic device that not only produces electricity from sunlight, but also transmits its infrared energy for use in an attached thermal energy device.
KU researchers have developed a novel apparatus and associated method for the in situ formation of multi-layer thin film structures using atomic layer deposition (ALD) and ultra-high vacuum (UHV) physical/chemical vapor deposition.
This invention provides a computationally efficient means of performing adaptive pulse compression (APC) and is denoted as the Fast APC (FAPC) algorithm. The FAPC algorithm dramatically reduces range sidelobes while maintaining near optimal signal-to-noise (SNR) gain and is much more computationally efficient than the original APC.
This invention comprises of an apparatus and method for adaptive materials that are arranged in a variety of orientations and with a wide range of attachment configurations that induce structural vibrations at extremely high frequencies.
