NSF Names Georgia Tech lead Institute for New Integrated Photonics & Electronics Center: Electronic-Photonic Integrated Circuits for Aerospace (EPICA)

Stephen E. Ralph and his research team

The Georgia Institute of Technology has been awarded funding to lead a new Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers Program (IUCRC) in Integrated Photonics. Integrated photonics have become a key enabling technology in many commercial, defense and scientific applications such as fiber communications, data centers, RF analog links, quantum computing, and communications and sensing. Defense and aerospace applications of integrated photonics present many challenges for researchers, however they provide enormous opportunities for advancements in the fields.

Abstract: Many of the nation’s key priorities, building resilient infrastructure, mitigating climate change effects, developing an economy built on renewable and sustainable energy sources, enabling advanced manufacturing, exploiting space for the good of humanity and other national security related objectives, will depend in large part on a new generation of advanced materials.

Please note this Nano@Tech lecture is on MONDAY April 26, 2021

Abstract: Recent advances in quantum technology and hardware have advanced MEMS systems to where these can now be designed and operated in the quantum regime, albeit using sophisticated quantum methods to control and measure the mechanics, and requiring cryogenic systems to enable operation in the quantum ground state. Quantum MEMS promise exciting new opportunities for applications in quantum information processing and storage, and for quantum sensing.

Abstract: Computers, smartphones and smart watches are generally considered tools that enhance productivity. But while they have put the world’s knowledge at our fingertips, people need additional skills in order to be successful and realize their goals. Maes’ work explores how future personal devices may help us with cognitive skills such as attention, motivation, behavior change, memory, creativity, and emotion regulation.
