Wireless Power for Wireless Devices
The personal wireless communication and computing industry continues to grow but the “tether” of power replenishment still remains. This concept enables devices to recharge without being plugged into a power supply—continually, safely and efficiently.

Method for Quantum Information Processing Using Single Photons and the Zeno Effect
Quantum computing is a new method to perform extremely large numbers of calculations almost instantaneously using photons as logic devices instead of 1’s and 0’s. An example of a large calculation would be the use of factorials to encrypt messages for credit card purchases over the Internet. (A factorial is all the numbers multiplied together up to the factorial number. Example: 5! = 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120.) Most encryption methods use 128! code to “hide” messages, and it has been estimated that a conventional computer would take longer than the life span of our Sun to break this code. However, as a result of quantum physics, future computers could break this code almost immediately. Until now, progress of quantum computing has been hampered by large numbers of calculation errors. However, this method allows APL researchers to greatly reduce errors and bring quantum computing closer to reality.
