  • Artificial Retina - With this device, bio-electronic integrated circuits transform digital images from a camera mounted on a pair of glasses into electric signals in the eye that the brain uses to create a visual image. In clinical trials, 30 patients with vision loss were able to successfully identify objects, navigate in their environment, and detect movement using the "artificial retina." The implant is intended eventually to enable patients to read large print and recognize faces. (This multi-team project was jointly submitted by Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, University of Southern California (Doheny Eye Institute), California Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, the University of California at Santa Cruz and Second Sight Medical Products LLC.)

  • FemtoScope This time microscope dramatically improves the performance of traditional recording devices in the same way a high-performance lens improves a camera's output. When combined with an optical streak camera, the system achieves a 20-fold increase in temporal resolution simultaneous with a 30-fold improvement in dynamic range for an overall improvement of 600 times compared to the performance of the streak camera alone. This breakthrough offers the potential to yield important insights into understanding the process of fusion energy burn.

  • Spectral Sentry - is an advanced technology developed to protect critical laser systems from pulses that contain incorrect bandwidth for amplification. The device inspects each individual laser pulse, which is traveling at the speed of light, and then determines if the pulse meets the bandwidth requirements to avoid self-destruction during amplification. Spectral Sentry can stop the speed-of-light p
