Achievements
  • 62 issued US patents in last 10 years (almost 1 patent every two months)
  • Invention of Nano-crystalline Diamond Field Emitters used for flat panel displays, nano-electronics, vacuum microelectronics, electronic coolers, high power RF devices, nano/micro-satellite thrusters and UV sensors. My 30 patents in this area are licensed to Canon and a consortium of Japanese companies for display manufacturing.
  • Invention of 'NanoBench', an individually addressable Carbon Nanotube Array useful for real time single molecule studies, nano-fluidics & single molecule fluidics, DNA sequencing, nanostructure synthesis, cell migration studies and study of electric field on cells/tissues.
  • Invention of a field emission thermoelectric cooler that has the potential of increasing the efficiency of state-of-the-art coolers by a factor of 5-10.
  • Independent development of aligned carbon nanotube (CNT) field emission cathodes and demonstration of electron emission at field in the 1-3 volts per micrometer range. These are useful for applications such as flat panel displays, x-ray sources and electronic coolers.
