Closing the terahertz gap: Tiny laser is an important step toward new sensors

In a major step toward developing portable scanners that can rapidly measure molecules in pharmaceuticals or classify tissue in patients’ skin, researchers have created an imaging system that uses lasers small and efficient enough to fit on a microchip.

Strange warping geometry helps to push scientific boundaries

Atomic interactions in everyday solids and liquids are so complex that some of these materials’ properties continue to elude physicists’ understanding. Solving the problems mathematically is beyond the capabilities of modern computers, so scientists at Princeton University have turned to an unusual branch of geometry instead.

 

Electrical engineering faculty receive presidential early-career awards

Four faculty members of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, including two from electrical engineering, have been named recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their research careers.

Lamme Award honors Vince Poor for leadership in engineering education and research

H. Vincent Poor, who served as Princeton's dean of engineering from 2006 to 2016, has been awarded the Benjamin Garver Lamme Award, honoring more than four decades of contributions to engineering education.

Research collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies selected to receive Dean for Research Innovation funding

A collaboration between Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and researchers from Princeton's Department of Electrical Engineering aims to open up new capacity for mobile phones and other wireless devices to connect to the internet by expanding use of the electromagnetic spectrum, the "highway" that carries wireless signals.

EE group wins top prize at Innovation Forum

Researchers unveiled technical advances such as a portable device that could reduce injuries, costs and pain associated with intravenous injections and a power architecture that slashes data centers’ electric bills at Princeton University’s 14th annual Innovation Forum on Wednesday, February 27.

Sharad Malik named Outstanding Researcher by Intel

Chair of electrical engineering Sharad Malik has received the Outstanding Researcher Award from Intel Labs, one of four such awards that honor major innovations in emerging technologies.

New technology marks a key step toward shrinking a medical lab to fit on fingertip

Identifying a patient’s viral infection or diagnosing a blood disorder usually requires a lab and skilled technicians. Now researchers co-led by EE professor Kaushik Sengupta have developed a new technology that goes a long way toward replacing the lab with a single microchip.

 

Claire Gmachl named head of Whitman College at Princeton

Claire Gmachl, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Electrical Engineering, has been named head of Whitman College, one of Princeton’s six residential colleges. She will begin her four-year term on July 1.

Graduate alumna seeks new ways for quantum computing to mature

Graduate alumna and Intel research scientist Sonika Johri has called for a more application-driven approach to designing quantum computers, which use quantum mechanics to solve problems beyond conventional computers’ capabilities.
