Rensselaer researchers have developed a scanning electron microscopy based temperature mapping technique which employs a temperature sensitive electron signal for nano-scale resolution, non-contact measurement. It provides enhanced capabilities for investigating heat generation and transfer at the nanoscale to address long-standing issues related to power consumption, heat…
This technology relates to semiconductor devices and growth techniques in the field of III-N semiconductors. For example, the technology provides a semiconductor device with a substrate comprising a groove. A buffer layer is formed on a surface of the groove. The buffer layer has at least one material chosen from AIN, GaN or AlxGa1-xN, where x is between zero and one. An…
This technology provides an LED design that can greatly improve polarization selectivity, 10:1, resulting in greater efficiency of the LED. The technology lies within a photonic crystal bi-refringent polarization rotator and an oxide spacer. The design blue-shifts transmission, which greatly improves overall efficiency of the LED by recycling wasted light and increasing…
This technology relates to an ultra high efficient LED system with the capability to modify an LEDs radiation pattern by changing its physical dimension-emission beam shape. The ultra high efficiency and redistribution of light has been achieved without the use of a back reflector. The ultra high efficiency can be controlled by changing the size of the nanorods within the…
This technology relates to solid-state devices as replacements for incandescent light bulbs. The LED based bulb uses the normal Edison socket, but the LED and heat sink are placed on the far end of the bulb. The heat sink attaches to the bottom and outside of the bulb providing a structural base for the LED. Several alternative shapes for the light guide are provided to…
Using air as an emitting medium to generate terahertz wave has attracted attention because of its potential applications for remote distance THz wave sensing and imaging. Yet, the cutting edge energy conversion efficiency of THz wave generation with optical method is extremely low. Researchers at Rensselaer have developed a method for generating amplified terahertz radiation…

This technology is directed to nanostructures in general and to metal nanoblades in particular. Oblique angle deposition has been demonstrated as an effective technique to produce three-dimensional nanostructures, such as nanosprings and nanorods. Because of the physical shadowing effect, the oblique incident vapor is preferentially deposited onto the highest surface features…
Since terahertz (THz) wave spectroscopy has been utilized to detect a number of chemical and explosive materials and related compounds by providing their spectral signatures in the THz frequency range, there is an interest in THz wve spectroscopy as a technique to sense improvised explosive devices. However, due to the severe water vapor attenuation of THz waves in the…
This invention is directed to a self-commissioning photosensor and controller device that turns electric lights on and off using a microprocessor connected to a luminaire. The processor receives signals from a self-commissioned mountable photosensor. The photosensor uses a unique algorithm to control illumination at the task pane making the photosensor more accurate than…
