 Research Projects:

(1) Project Title

Understanding the charge dynamics in heterogeneous photo-electro-catalytic water splitting with femtosecond in-situ time-resolved X-ray absorption spectroscopy

Abstract

The technical innovations of proposed research will be an extension of time-resolved methods to the PEC system under realistic working conditions. By using the time-resolved in-situ X-ray spectroscopy, we are planning to investigate important scientific problems in various PEC water splitting that have not been understood very well. They include (1) transient electronic structures of charge carriers in semiconductor cell, (2) transient charge carriers completing dynamics in the semiconductor heterojunctions. Our proposed research would not only deepen our molecular level understanding of PEC cells but also would assist the development of design principles for PEC water splitting systems.

(2) Project Title

Engineering of High Performance Signal Processing Elements for Real-time Infrastructure

Abstract

This proposal states an FPGA prototype based digital signal co-processor architecture, which can perform variable precision fixed and floating point elementary signal processing operations such as addition, subtraction, shift, logical operation, multiplication, multiply-accumulation, and CORDIC. Here, the proposed multiplier-cum-accumulator (MAC) is to perform multiplication or MAC without any change in the hardware, where the previous MAC result is fed as one of the partial products to carry save stages of the multiplier. In this proposed co-processor architecture, CORDIC is added as one of the functional units, where the number of iterations can be variable and the special functions can be computed by defining the values in the instruction field. This co-processor will be used to perform the Video Compression with Ethernet/10GBaseR interconnect between the FPGA and PC.
