Research by Rana Biswas, ECpE professor, and Akshit Peer, ECpE PhD student, published in Nanoscale, was featured in Optics and Photonics News last week. Biswas and Peer’s work demonstrates a technique for achieving an optical transmission, with modeled electric-field enhancements as high as a hundredfold, using a continuous film of gold on a corrugated, “nanocupped” …Continue reading “Research featured in Optics and Photonics News”
His research may involve working with small particles, but Jaime Juarez, an assistant professor in mechanical engineering, has big plans.
Song Zhang, William and Virginia Binger Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, was elected a 2014 fellow of the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, promotes members as new fellows of the society to honor them for their technical achievements, for their service to the general optics community, and to …Continue reading “Zhang named SPIE fellow”
Based on their excellent contributions to electrical and computer engineering research, two Iowa State Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECpE) professors have been named 2012 Fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Chris Chu, associate professor, and Ahmed Kamal, professor, officially join the ranks of the distinguished IEEE Fellows in January 2012. The …Continue reading “Two ECpE professors named IEEE Fellows”
