This technology relates to control of multi-terminal power systems. Renewable energy sources are increasingly connected to the power grid in series. In these situations, central control of these sources can be difficult, but it very important for protection of the equipment attached to the string. This technology controls a multi-terminal power system by implementing local…
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…
Circadian rhythm is the biological process critical to the well-being of living organisms, from plants to insects and mammals. The circadian rhythms oscillate with a period of approximately 24 hours due to the 24-hour light-darkness pattern of the solar day. Some physiological processes, such as alertness regulation and hormone production, are related with circadian rhythm.…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a new class of phosphors that have narrow spectral linewidths suitable for high-efficiency, white light LED fabrication for lighting and display applications. These phosphors can be efficiently excited by near UV and blue LEDs such as in 400 nm LEDs and can provide emission in green, yellow, amber and red wavelengths. Commercial phosphor-…
Rensselaer researchers have developed programmable directed mesoscopic self-assembly and energy-assisted placement processes suitable for high speed, high accuracy, and low-defect rate LED system packaging operations. Current LED packaging technology is handled one semiconductor device element at a time, and is limited to a speed of about 10K units per hour. New technology is…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a smart, efficient, aesthetically pleasing, solid-state lighting system for homes and commercial spaces. Over 35% of the energy consumed by illumination can be saved by using advanced lighting control systems; however, these systems require frequent calibration and programming to adjust to interior redesign of the space and personal…
This technology overcomes several serious difficulties related to aligning and attaching transducers on opposite sides of a barrier like a submarine hull or the like, when the vessel is in a body of water, or other barriers where one or both sides of the barrier may be in a hostile environment, such as under high pressure, high temperature or nuclear conditions, or a liquid…
Rensselaer researchers have designed a convenient and inexpensive linear permanent magnet machine solution for transportation, conveyance, and other applications. When designed for short-strokes, the machine is very robust and rugged, and exhibits excellent performance characteristics such as very high thrust density, low ripples, and normal forces. Traditionally, linear PM…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a thermodynamically stable dispersion technology resulting in thick, transparent, high refractive index silicone nanocomposites that increase the light efficiency of LEDs and improve the emitted light color quality. The nanocomposites could also be processed as transparent bulk material with high filler loading, which is essential for…
