Unique Chip Identification Using the Material Properties of Semiconductor Substrates
We propose a method to use the variations in material properties of semiconductors as a unique identifier for integrated circuits. The variation in properties results from ion implantation, and the variations can be visualized using optical measurement techniques. The process can be implemented on silicon, GaN and GaAs.

HEP/DG Power Continuity Unit (Advanced Power Control for Hybrid Microgrid)
Power control, utility interface and microgrid management device that is installed at a distribution substation, permitting the integration of distributed generation (locally produced power)
Far field Wireless Power Transfer
The technology is on a concept for a far field wireless power transfer prototype, using resistor emulation and Dickson charge pumps to increase the efficiency of the wireless power transfer.
Fluid-Cooled Heat Sink with Improved Fin Areas and Efficiencies for Use in Cooling Various Devices
Fluid-cooled heat sink has heat transfer base in thermal communication with heat transfer fins. Base and fins form central fluid channel through which cooling fluid flows. Heat transfer pins around channel with flow space provided between adjacent pins, allow portion of central fluid channel flow to divert through flow space.
User Interface for a Tele-Operated Robotic Hand System
The user interface determines userÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s applicable physiological dimensions and applies the dimensions and specific fingertip location to treat userÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s finger as two link three degree-of-freedom serial linkage. Interface communicates the angles of interest to a gripping-type end effector which closely mimics motion range and proportions of human hand.
