Recent News

Suresh Subramaniam

Prof. Suresh Subramaniam has received a three-year, $282, 284 National Science Foundation grant for the project "Cost-Effective and Scalable Architectures for Multi-Granular Optical Networks." In this project, he will collaborate with researchers from Nagoya University in Japan who will be supported by NICT, the Japanese equivalent of NSF.

Volker Sorger

Prof. Volker Sorger has received a three-year, $360,000 Young Investigator Program (YIP) award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). The objective of his research project, titled "Breaking Photonic Limits: light-matter-interaction enhanced devices for atto-joule & THz Datalinks," is to test the hypothesis that strong light-matter-interactions in electro-optic modulators and switches result in a significant performance boost for opto-electronic devices beyond classically known limits.

Howie Huang

Prof. Howie Huang has received a five-year, $375,000 NSF CAREER Award for his research project "Hardware Error Resilient Virtualization Infrastructure." This research will advance our understanding of hardware error behaviors in virtualized environments and develop virtualization-aware techniques for robust error detection, recovery, and protection.

Welcome to ECE
