Inventing the technological building blocks of future systems
R&D in advanced technology focuses on inventing new materials, devices, and components to enable revolutionary system capabilities. We pursue innovation in a wide set of areas, including imagers, lasers, quantum computing, microsystems, RF technology, and chemical sensors.
Advanced Technology Groups
New materials that are chemically inspired by nature could be tailored at the molecular level to dissipate vibrations in microsystems. Materials that can survive repeated external stresses could enable a next generation of enhanced microsystems.
A novel method for manufacturing interconnects could open the door for 3D-printed microelectronic systems.
A new planet hunter will spend the next two years searching for exoplanets, including those that could support life.
