INSTRUCTION SET ARCHITECTURE AS A LEVER FOR BETTER SECURITY, PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY IN GENERAL PURPOSE PROCESSORS In general purpose processors, the instruction set architecture changes little over time, to maximize software compatibility. In this talk, I make the case that abandoning that approach can provide big gains in…

NANO-PHOTONICS, PLASMONICS, AND MEMRISTOR We have enjoyed the great successes of “Moore’s law” for more than four decades. They have mainly been fueled by the semiconductor industry. Although the end of the roadmap may be getting closer, it is just the start of a new era when we will leverage the billions of dollars that have been…

MINIATURIZED SOURCES OF ULTRASHORT OPTICAL PULSES AND HIGH SPECTRAL PURITY MICROWAVE SIGNALS A train of ultrashort optical pulses is comprised of a large number of laser tones oscillating synchronously. This equally-spaced array of frequencies, called an optical frequency comb, has found applications in the generation of high…
