Carbon Nanotube-Based Micro Ion Thrusters  

Utilizing extremely small tips of nanotubes and nano fibers to enable very high localized electric fields. These electric fields are used to ionize the propellant gas at much lower power requirements. All of these enable miniaturization of systems.

Microfabrication of MEMS THz imaging Focal Plane Arrays  

Using micro fabrication processing to produce MEMS-based bimaterial focal plane arrays (FPA) for Thz imaging. Each detector pixel features resonant metamaterial absorber and sections of bimaterial legs that deform when detectors absorb Thz radiation. Absorbers are optimized for the frequency of quantum cascade lasers used for external illumination.
