Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE)

  • This fall, the faculty and students in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department at MIT are coming together for a new program that has created a buzz since its announcement last spring. The Advanced Undergraduate Research Program — now officially called the SuperUROP — for EECS department juniors and seniors has already enticed over 200 students with more than 100 exciting research projects proposed by the department's faculty.

  • EECS/RLE Seminar Series of Optics and Quantum Electronics
  • Qing Hu, professor of electrical engineering and principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE), has been awarded the IEEE Photonics Society's 2012 William Streifer Scientific Achievement Award. Qing is cited "for pioneering contribution in the development of high-temperature, high-power, and broadly tunable THz QCLs, and applications in imaging and sensing.”
  • Tim Lu, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, principal investigator in the Research Lab of Electronics at MIT, and Associate Member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, has been working with colleagues at Boston University (BU), Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to build genetic circuit components in living cells to ultimately perform novel functions such as manufacturing new drugs, producing fuel, or even programming suicide of cancer cells.
  • Timothy K. Lu, EECS assistant professor and principal investigator with the MIT Research Lab of Electronics, RLE, is one of five MIT members selected for the presidential early career award for Scientists and Engineers - and one of 96 selected for this honor nationwide. Lu is cited for his contributions in establishing innovative synthetic biology platforms and for his pioneering applications of synthetic biology to materials science, nanotechnology and infectious diseases.
  • Research update: Chips with self-assembling rectangles - New technique allows production of complex microchip structures in one self-assembling step
  • Mildred Spiewak Dresselhaus, a professor of physics and engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, walks with a very large carbon footprint, and in her case it’s a good thing. For more than half a century, Dr. Dresselhaus has studied the fundamental properties of carbon.
  • James Fujimoto has been appointed as the Elihu Thomson Professor of Electrical Engineering for a five-year term from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2017.
