Verilog-A Device Models for Cryogenic Temperature Operation of Bulk Silicon CMOS Devices
These models can be used in cryogenic electronics applications such as cooled imagers and
sensors, medical electronics, and remote sensing satellites.
Verilog-A based cryogenic bulk CMOS
(complementary metal oxide semiconductor)
compact models are built for state-ofthe-
art silicon CMOS processes. These
models accurately predict device operation
at cryogenic ...

Thermally Resilient, Broadband Optical Absorber From UV to IR Derived From Carbon Nanostructures
This technology can be used in aerospace, semiconductors,
antireflection coatings, optoelectronics, and communications.
Optical absorber coatings have been
developed from carbon-based paints,
metal blacks, or glassy carbon.
However, such materials are not truly
black and have poor absorption characteristics
at longer wavelengths. The
blackness of such coatings is ...
