      Kaushik, Anirudh Mohan (University of Waterloo, 2021-06-18)
      Multi-core platforms are becoming primary compute platforms for real-time systems such as avionics and autonomous vehicles. This adoption is primarily driven by the increasing application demands deployed in real-time ...
    • TiO2 and Biomaterials based Memristor Devices and its In-Memory Computing Applications 

      Ranjan, Shubham (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-01)
      As information technology is moving toward a big data era, the conventional Von Neumann architecture has shown limitation in performance. This is constrained by the large volume of data being continuously fetched and stored ...
    • To Use the Codebook Information or Not: A Study of the Compress-and-Forward Relay Strategy 

      Wu, Xiugang (University of Waterloo, 2009-01-21)
      The motivation of this thesis is to understand how nodes can cooperate in a particular relay channel, say a relay channel with orthogonal link between relay and destination. We are especially interested in the scenario ...
    • Top-Contact Lateral Organic Photodetectors for Deep Ultraviolet Applications 

      Borel, Thomas (University of Waterloo, 2013-09-03)
      Organic semiconductors are very attractive for thin film Organic Photodetectors (OPDs) since they possess a number of desirable attributes for optical sensing including high absorption coefficients over visible and ultraviolet ...
    • Top-Gate Nanocrystalline Silicon Thin Film Transistors 

      Lee, Hyun Jung (University of Waterloo, 2008-06-20)
      Thin film transistors (TFTs), the heart of highly functional and ultra-compact active-matrix (AM) backplanes, have driven explosive growth in both the variety and utility of large-area electronics over the past few decades. ...
    • Topological Insulator-Superconductor Heterostructures and Devices 

      Li, Lin (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-19)
      A 3D topological insulator has fully gapped insulating bulk state but a conducting surface. Such conducting “surface” states are formed with helical Dirac fermions, with spin-momentum strictly locked by spin-orbital coupling. ...
    • Toward High Performance Broad-band Frequency Comb Operation of Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers 

      Xu, Chao (University of Waterloo, 2017-05-16)
      Recent advances in Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser (THz QCL) development are pushing this technology ever closer to practical application, particularly within the spectroscopic field. For this reason, optimizing the operation ...
