This technology relates to a full spectrum broad wavelength emission white light source fabricated using a graded composition optically clear substrate that enables high efficiency, high flux, narrow or wide spectral width, large area, low cost LEDs with
This technology relates to visually-guided multiprobe microassembly for assembling micro-electromechanical (MEMS) devices from multiple parts that are assembled rather than using bulk-processes to produce devices monolithically. Current production technologies primarily use a single wafer that is process chemically to produce finished devices. While this is useful for many…
Coastal urban development has resulted in buildings and civil structures extending to the waters edge, which has significantly reduced the coastlines natural mechanisms for resisting erosion from wave action. There is a need to restore the ability of many coastlines to absorb wave energy and to restore native shoreline plants. To address this problem, this technology…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a water treatment system that is integrated with the faade of a building. The system includes a lens that forms part of the building faade and that guides sunlight through wastewater carrying conduits so that the wastewater is treated by the sunlight. The system therefore provides an inexpesive water treatment solution, but also…
This technology relates to a photopolymerizable class of vinyl ether oligomers which can find application in the areas of coatings, adhesives, printing inks, photoresists and high impact composites. The versatile photopolymerization capability makes these oligomers an excellent strategic candidate for shrinkage control coatings in place of acrylates. These oligomers include…
This technology relates to a high thermal conductivity thermal interface material that allows for the formation of an interconnected, spanning, high thermal conductivity network within the matrix of a polymeric material using nano particles. This material can yield two orders of magnitude higher thermal conductivities than the non-network counterpart, as well as factorial…
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 fabricating tunable refractive index nanoporous thin films on flexible polymer substrates. The refractive index of the nanoporous thin film can be tuned during fabrication to a designed vale by adjusting the porosity of the thin optical film. Experiments show that thin-film SiO2 with tunable porosity fabricated by oblique angle electron beam…
This technology relates to a full spectrum broad wavelength emission white light source fabricated using a graded composition optically clear substrate that enables high efficiency, high flux, narrow or wide spectral width, large area, low cost LEDs with peak emission wavelength in the range of visible wavelength range from 400-750 nm. The technology also provides a platform…
This technology relates to detecting radiation by directing an optical beam into a volume of gas, ionizing a portion of the volume of gas with the optical beam to produce a plasma, and then detecting an acoustic signal produced from an interaction of a radiation wave with the plasma. This technology relates to the phenomenon of enhanced acoustic emission from laser-induced…
