Thermal analysis has long been essential for designing reliable, high-performance, cost-effective integrated circuits (ICs). Increasing power densities are making this problem more important. Characterizing the thermal profile of an IC quickly enough to allow feedback on the thermal effects of tentative design changes is a daunting problem, and its(More)
—This article presents NanoHeat, a multi-resolution full-chip dynamic IC thermal analysis solution, that is accurate down to the scale of individual gates and transistors. NanoHeat unifies nanoscale and macroscale dynamic thermal physics models, for accurate characterization of heat transport from the gate and transistor level up to the chip–package level.(More)

Characterizing biomolecular interactions is crucial to the understanding of biological processes. Existing characterization methods have low spatial resolution, poor specificity, and some lack the capability for deep tissue imaging. We describe a novel technique that relies on small-angle X-ray scattering signatures from high-contrast molecular probes that(More)
