Running quantum algorithms in a quantum machine may solve some complex problems that are intractable for even the most powerful classical computers. Quantum algorithms can be described by quantum circuits consisting of a set of qubits and a sequence of gates operating on those qubits when the quantum circuit model of computation is adopted. This...

The rodent whisker system is becoming a prominent experimental subject for the study of active sensing. As a result of improved video recording hardware/software and progressively better neurophysiological methods, there is now the prospect of precisely analyzing the intact vibrissal sensorimotor system. The vibrissae and snout analyzer (ViSA),...

Secure communication has been paramount throughout history. Although in the early ages it was mainly found in niche applications such as the military and royal society, today it is an inevitable part of our daily lives. The recent rapid proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT), a diverse set of devices that are connected to the Internet,...

The memory-wall problem is a big challenge that classical Von Neumann-based computer systems face. This problem is caused by the increasing performance gap between the main memory and the central processing unit. The novel Computation-in-Memory (CiM) architecture can solve the memory wall problem by using emerging memristor technology to perform...

The use of quantum computer can dramatically increase the computation power when compared with a classical computer. This is achieved by the manipulation of qubits. Qubits are the basic unit of quantum computation, and assumes a superposition of the two classical states ’0’ and ’1’. Qubits can be realized in many ways, namely; Ion traps,...

Recent advances in solid-state qubit technology are paving the way to fault-tolerant quantum computing systems. However, qubit technology is limited by qubit coherence time and the scaling of quantum processors is limited by the complexity of coupling quantum systems with a classical electronic infrastructure. Hence, the proposed approach is to...

Quantum computation is bringing excitement and motivation into the scientific community to build a practical quantum computer. This would enable the solution of problems today intractable, thanks to the exponential decrease in the required number of operations with respect to a classical computer. Nevertheless, this extraordinary computer needs...

Current X-ray machines use lower radiation doses which introduces noise to the output images. Therefore such systems need to enhance the image and reduce the noise via different algorithms to provide the best possible output. In addition, it is crucial to accelerate these image processing algorithms as the output is intended to be a real time...

Current X-ray machines often rely on off-the-shelf PCs to implement image processing chains. These PCs have a limited lifetime and need to be replaced every few years. If such a PC is not commercially available anymore, the image processing chain has to be redeveloped for a new target platform to ensure the exact same performance and functional...

Single-Photon Avalanche Diodes (SPAD) have gradually become the top choice for time-resolved imaging applications thanks to their high timing resolution and single-photon sensitivity. However, a variety of factors complicate the implementation of SPAD sensors with large pixel arrays that achieve comparable specifications with competing...

We report on the characterization of single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) fabricated in standard 140-nm silicon on insulator (SOI) complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology. As a methodology for SPAD optimization, a test structure array, called SPAD farm, was realized with several junctions, guard-ring structures, dimensions,...
