an easy-to-use image editing tool for manipulating meaningful image objects in scanned documents or screenshots
PARC is developing M-FAST (Metamaterial Frequency-Adaptive Steerable Technology) -- a low cost, low size, weight, and power (SWaP), electronically scanned array adapted for 360° scanning and tracking of multiple small unmanned aircraft systems (SUAS) threats and objects. At its core, M-FAST consists of an array of tunable metamaterial elements, with a 120° field of view, which steers and shapes RF beams. M-FAST is a low-complexity platform compared to other traditional phased arrays or electronically scanned arrays. Additionally, M-FAST’s all-electronic platform is controlled by computationally lightweight algorithms.
Printed and Flexible Electronics
PARC is modeling people’s behavior in social systems to develop solutions that enhance the usability and value of social analytics and collaboration systems.
PARC is developing a spectrally-selective metamaterial emitter with an engineered emission spectrum that matches the spectral response of a low-bandgap photovoltaic (PV) cell (e.g. made of GaSb), allowing for an efficient way to convert heat directly and efficiently to electricity.
PARC has developed the Filament Extension Atomizer (FEA) to address problems arising from difficult to spray materials. This technology is capable of spraying materials previously either difficult or impossible to spray for a wide range of applications including spray coating, particle creation, spray drying, drug delivery, or powder coatings.
Metamaterials (i.e., engineered electromagnetic structures), are poised to disrupt industries, create entirely new markets, and change society. The ability to design and fabricate materials with new functionalities opens the door to a new world of possibilities ¾it is now possible to realize Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak and optical black holes, which we once thought was impossible. Beyond the realms of science fiction, metamaterials can be tailored to either augment the functionality of existing devices or create new devices with superior performances.
