Abstract : This report summarizes the research activity supported by the Joint Services Electronics Program at the Electronics Research Laboratory for the period June 1993 to June 1994. The Berkeley JSEP effort was organized into three themes: Quantum and Opto-electronic Devices, Semiconductor Electronic Devices, and Artificial Neural Networks. Under Quantum and Opto-electronic Devices, a new femtosecond laser laboratory for ultrafast measurements of carrier dynamics in semiconductors was completed. In the Semiconductor Electronic Device area, a novel device design was invented that has made possible quantitative measurement of the saturation velocity in inversion layers. This key parameter directly relates to the ultimate speed of transistors making it practical to realize CMOS-like circuits that can operate at voltages as low as 0.6V, and still maintain excellent speed and turn-off characteristics. Under Artificial Neural Networks, the focus continued to be the development of connectionist algorithms that are directly applicablc to real-world problems, with particular attention given to applications of specific DoD interest. This work on speech recognition and machine vision emphasizes robustness in the face of noise.
