Connecting Innovation Partners with LBNL Technology

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) delivers science solutions to the world – solutions derived from hundreds of patented and patent pending inventions and scores of peer-reviewed manuscripts published each year.

Berkeley Lab is the birthplace of

  • quantum dots designed for biomedical assays and energy-efficient, true color displays
  • a photodiode yielding smaller gamma cameras for patient care
  • a semiconductor industry consortium 
  • startups such as Nanosys, Heliotrope, and Whisker Labs
  • and 100+ new technologies and software reported each year.

The Lab's Intellectual Property Office (IPO) connects small and large businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs with lab innovations suited to applications in semiconductor manufacturing, energy storage, high performance computing, and environmnetal remediation among many others.

Berkeley Lab is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science national lab managed by the University of California employing over 3,000 scientists, engineers and support staff.


 Products

  • Semiconductor Material Fabrication
    LBNL has developed technologies to fabricate Mithrene, Single Crystalline III-V Semiconductors, and Narrow Band Gap Conjugated Polymers for optoelectrical and electronic devices....


  • Mithrene
    LBNL has developed a technology to fabricate large crystals and large volumes of mithrene (silver benzeneselenolate), the first bulk material designed to express monolayer properties in its as-synthesized state. Mithrene is a direct-band-gap semiconductor with discrete inorganic and organic layers. Its tunable optical qualities holds promise in optoelectronics. 

    Single Crystalline III-V Semiconuctor Growth Below 300C on Any Substrate
    LBNL's technology reduces the cost and processing complexity for materials key to photovoltaic, optoelectronic, and electronic applications, including flexible electronics. The ability to grow the materials with user-defined geometries and dimentions is achieved via pre-patterning the group III element followed by subsequent growth with the group V element intriduced via the vapor phase.

    Narrow Band Gap Conjugated Polymers
    LBNL and University of Southern Mississippi researchers have invented new polymer compounds and preparation methods for organic semiconductors applied to light harvesting applications, LEDs, electrochromics, energy storage, and more.

  • Energy Efficient HPC
    LBNL has developed platforms to increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption in high performance supercomputers....

  • Collective Memory Transfers for Multi-Core Processors
    A new hardware component demonstrated to reduce execution time for reading and writing distributed data arrays by 40% to increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption in high performance supercomputers and chip multiprocessors.

    Optimized, Energy Efficient Prefetcher Hardware Architecture
    A purely hardware last-level collective prefetcher that improves execution time by 5.5% on average, increases DRAM bandwidth by 9% - 18%, decreases DRAM rank energy by 6%, produces 27% more timely prefetches, and increases coverage by 25% at minimum.

    Green Wave: Energy Efficient HPC Design
    An energy efficient computing platorm that can perform Reverse Time Migration functions at a fraction of the power required for current systems. Green Wave demonstrated an 11-fold improvement in RTM code performance for seismic imaging applications over conventional x86 clusters and a 3.5x improvement over GPU clusters.

     

  • Miniature Ion Accelerator
    Scales to very high beam power and enables ultra-compact, low cost applications of charge particle beams for semiconductor and other manufacturing, homeland security screening, mass spectrometers, plasma heating, and more....

  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Cornell University researchers have designed a miniature ion accelerator that can scale to very high beam power and enables ultra-compact and low cost applications of charge particle beams for semiconductor manufacturing, homeland security screening, plasma heating, mass spectrometers, and more.

    MEMS processes enable scalable, low cost component fabrication, permitting greater ion beam power generation for a target or for materials processing and enable production of ions or electrons in ultra-compact accelerator structures. The technology can operate with multiple beams and combines an ion source with ESQ focusing elements and high voltage gaps for acceleration. 

    By adding lattice accelerator unit cells in wafer stacks, high beam energies can be generated in a structure with a small length. The accelerator lattice is simulated and designed using charged particle focusing and acceleration codes. The wafers forming the accelerator structure are fabricated using PC board, MEMS processing (thin film deposition, etching, laser cutting, etc.), or additive manufacturing.
