• High Resolution Digital Printing of Particulate Matter:
There is a growing need for innovative printing technologies that can adapt to emerging electronic and biological materials, with compatibility to large-area and flexible substrates. This project will develop a new technology for high-speed digital printing with a higher resolution and expanded materials capability compared to industrial inkjet printing.
• Stable Carbenes As General Surface Anchors:
This project is developing a new methodology for attaching materials to surfaces using carbene molecules. The technology has applicability in the manufacture of semiconductors, development of medical devices, any many other industries (Renewal from Fall 2012 grant round).
• A Platform for Multi-Material Fabrication:
Current multi-material additive manufacturing systems have many limitations with regards to both software and hardware. This project proposes to develop a complete end-to-end platform for multi-material additive manufacturing with many components that can be used for a variety of applications in both academic and industrial markets.
• Fast flow peptides:
Peptides are an important and growing area of therapeutics. The development of peptide-based pharmaceuticals requires the synthesis of custom peptide sequences made on demand. With current batch systems these can take weeks to synthesize. This project is developing a flow system that greatly accelerates the rate of production and reduces overall synthesis time to minutes.
• eyeMITRA: Feature Revealing Computational Retinal Imaging and Predictive Analysis:
Early detection of diabetic retinopathy allows treatment that can prevent blindness. The high cost of retinal imaging devices and the expertise required to use them makes early screening unavailable to millions around the world. The eyeMITRA technology being developed by this project will bring retinal exams into the realm of routine care at a fraction of the current cost. (Renewal from Fall 2012 grant round).
• Shape Memory Actuators:
Shape memory materials are solid-state actuators that can produce both large forces and displacements, making them ideal materials for actuation applications in, e.g., robotics, electronics and haptics. The project will develop shape memory actuators to meet the growing need for advanced actuators.
• Sensors for Food and Agriculture: Selectivity for Key Markers and the Development of Scalable Manufacture:
Gases emitted by plants indicate the ripeness of produce. An inexpensive low power gas sensor would improve the economics by optimizing the harvest, storage, transportation and distribution of food. This project will develop a low cost sensor allowing for less food spoilage and more efficient distribution. (Renewal from Fall 2012 grant round).
• Scalable Photonic Links for Ethernet Systems:
Network limitations can have an adverse affect on the performance of large-scale computing systems such as data centers. This project will integrate laser sources with silicon photonics to create versatile and scalable photonic links for Ethernet systems which will enable unprecedented performance and scalability.
