    Probe Station

    This state of the art equipment allows for voltage and current measurements on a nanoscale level.   The probe station is used in the fields of VLSI, MEMS and Bio-electrics.


The ECE Department at GW offers ABET-accredited degrees in Bachelor of Science Electrical and Computer engineering. Within each academic program, students have the opportunity to tailor the curriculum to suit their interests and needs through a variety of electives.


Dr. Volker Sorger has been awarded an SBIR Phase II grant award titled “Toward Ultra-Dense Integrated Plasmonic Circuits”

The project explores nanophotonic building blocks co-integrated onto a silicon photonic chip to perform RF-to-optical signal processing in the context of cognitive radio.

Dr. Ahmed Louri and his research team has published a seminal conference paper titled: “LEAD: Learning-enabled Energy-Aware Dynamic Voltage/Frequency Scaling in NoC”

The work introduces machine learning techniques to manage power management in network on chips for future computing systems, and is published in the 55th International Design Automation Conference (DAC), June 24 – 28, San Francisco.

Dr. Ahmed Louri and his research team published a seminal paper for scaling future computing chips to thousands of processors (or cores) on a single chip at a flagship conference on parallel computing

The paper is titled “Power-Efficient Kilo-Core Photonic-Wireless Hybrid Network on Chips,” was presented at the 32nd IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing (IPDPS), Vancouver, BC.


Keeping the Lights On

Dr. Dehghanian studies power system resilience in the face of extreme weather conditions or cyberattacks that can compromise national security, helping to improve the planning and operations of power systems to create a more resilient and sustainable electric grid and mitigate the consequences of these events.

Smart Contact Lens

Towards a Smart Contact Lens

The goal of this work is to develop a wearable head-up display. Our research will set a path the way towards functional microsystems that will superimpose information, via light, over a person’s field of view. In doing so, it overcomes the enigma of augmented reality, a known grand challenge for engineering today. With the ability to actualize augmented reality (AR), advancements in numerous applications will unfold. Incorporation of AR could be seen in various area, such as education, training, navigation, and cross-cultural communication. It could not only revolutionize human-machine-interface, but they could also bridge the gap between patients and healthcare professionals.
Magnetic Refrigeration Technology

Next Generation Refrigeration Technology: Magnetic Refrigeration with Nanoparticles

In the advancement of alternative energy sources, and the critical importance of the global warming, magnetic refrigeration is a promising energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology to replace conventional vapor-compression techniques. Our research aims to design, develop, and implement the first scalable commercially viable compressor-free magnetic refrigerator system.
