    Patent Number:
    US 8885975 B2
    Description:

    A method is provided for reconstructing an image of an object that includes image elements. The method includes accessing measurement data associated with the image elements, introducing an auxiliary variable to transform an original problem of reconstructing the image to a constrained optimization problem, and solving the constrained optimization problem using a method of multipliers to create a sequence of sub-problems and solve the sequence of sub-problems. Solving the sequence of sub-prob…

    Patent Number:
    US 8836446 B2
    Description:

    A wave amplitude modulator for modulating a transmitted electromagnetic wave includes one or multiple self-gated capacitively coupled pair(s) of electron layers such as semiconductor or semimetal layers. Two electrical contacts are placed to each layer of electrons of the self-gated pair(s), and a power source is electrically connected to them. The power source, by varying the voltage applied between layers of electrons, tunes the electron density thereof, thereby adjusting the optical conduc…

    Patent Number:
    US 9362919 B1
    Description:

    A Boolean gate includes at least one symmetric tunneling field-effect transistor (SymFET) for low-power information processing. SymFETs are ideal for applications that demand low power and have moderate speed requirements, and demonstrate better dynamic energy efficiency than CMOS circuits. Negative differential resistance (NDR) behavior of SymFETs leads to hysteresis in inverters and buffers, and can be used to build simple Schmitt-triggers. Further, pseudo-SymFET loads may be utilized in ci…
