  • Madrid-MIT M+Visión Team wins 2015 Singapore Challenge. Luca Giancardo, PhD and the neuroQWERTY team awarded $100,000 for the best proposal to help elderly to “Age in Place” with their technology. Read more.
  • Photonic integrated circuits are coming closer to implementing the basic components needed for quantum information processing based on the recent work by EECS graduate student Nicholas Harris, a member of the Quantum Photonics Laboratory headed by Dirk Englund, Jamieson Career Development Professor and principal investigator in the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE). Read more.
  • Professor Joel Voldman, working with EECS graduate student Burak Dura and others from Whitehead Institute and Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new device that allows scientists to follow communication between immune cells. The work, reported in the Jan. 13 issue of Nature Communications, may lead to future studies of mechanisms that involve cancer and other diseases. Read more.
  • Professor Emeritus Shaoul “Ziggy” Ezekiel, an MIT alumnus who spent 46 years at the Institute as a professor in the departments of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AeroAstro) and Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, died on Jan. 7. He was 79.
  • A large group of researchers including EECS faculty Dirk Englund, Karl Berggren and their respective labs, the Quantum Photonics Group and the Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group have collaborated with colleagues at IBM and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory to edge closer to building effective quantum-computational circuits.

  • Vivienne Sze, core member of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL), principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) and the Emanuel E. Landsman (1958) Career Development Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department (EECS), has received a 2014 Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award (YFA). Read more.
  • Members of Prof. Karl Berggren's Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group, including principal author and postdoc in the group Yachin Ivry have not only discovered a common relationship between thickness, temperature and electrical resistance in all superconducting materials, but have demonstrated the new knowledge in larger-area devices. Read more.
  • Institute professor Mildred S. Dresselhaus is the recipient of the IEEE 2015 Medal of Honor — IEEE’s highest honor, given since 1917. She is cited “For leadership and contributions across many fields of science and engineering.” Read more.
  • The Madrid-MIT M+Vision Consortium has been recognized by the Fundacion Tecnologia y Salud for accelerating health technology innovation. Dr Martha Gray (Harvard-MIT HST, EECS, RLE, IMES), M+Visión Director, accepted the award on behalf of the MIT members of the group. Read more.
