Using NFT technology to create nonfungible history and NF time capsules
George Orwell wrote in 1984, “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. History has stopped.” Can this be stopped with NFT technology?
Special Relativity Aids the Escape
Special relativity calculations show that if good guys from earth accelerate at 1 g and get a year's head start, the bad guy aliens can never catch them though they go at the speed of light. Very counter intuitive! [pdf-embedder...

1994 paper on electronics evolution and diversity.
Multi-port Memory Invention
New kind of multiport memory. It exploits the fact that we store words rather than just bits in memories. By storing the words in clever ways one can tolerate collisions among accesses to the memory and still guarantee perfectly correct results. Prof. Ron Rivest of M.I.T. helped me with the concepts

A linear circuit theory conservation theorem using the numerical range
The theoretical work of which I am most proud was on a linear circuit theory conservation theorem that produced tight bounds on the performance of circuits composed of linear elements using the numerical range. The basic paper using the numerical range was titled “Frequency limitations in circuits composed of linear devices.” I followed it by some work that built on that foundation, including “The stability and passivity of MOSFET device models that use nonreciprocal capacitive elements.” Prof. John Wyatt of M.I.T. was my coach and mentor for this whole set of activities.

The first modelocked semiconductor laser diodes
I was a member of the team that demonstrated the first modelocked semiconductor laser. We did it first with GaAlAs and then with GaInAsP. These experiments generated pulses more than an order of magnitude shorter than anything previously achieved.
