for project titled “Green light emitting diodes for the ultimate solid-state lighting“. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is pleased to announce its inaugural Summer Internship Program for rising Juniors and Seniors at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in the Summer of 2024. Known as Inspiring New Transformations in Energy Research by Emerging Scientists and Technologists (INTEREST), this […]
for project titled “Diamond Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches“. The photoconductive semiconductor switches offer very fast bypass capability at as low a level of integration as possible to prevent power outages that affects half a million Americans on average daily and costs American households $150 billion annually. Yet, the traditional PCSS, invented in 1970, cannot reach the […]
