  • 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.
  • Professor Dimitri Antoniadis has been selected to receive the 2015 IEEE Jun-ichi Nishizawa Medal “for contributions to metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor physics, technology, and modeling”. The medal, sponsored by the Federation of Electric Power Companies, is given for outstanding contributions to material and device science and technology, including practical application.
  • "Nearly everyone seems to carry a cell phone or tablet. But if Tomás Palacios’s vision of the future of electronics comes to bear, it will be increasingly difficult to separate electronics from all the other structures and materials surrounding us." Read more.
  • Dongeek Shin, Ahmed Kirmani, Vivek K Goyal, and Professor Jeffrey H. Shapiro, received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) 2014 held in Paris, France, for their paper “Computational 3D and Reflectivity Imaging with High Photon Efficiency.” Read more.
  • Five EECS faculty and associated researchers are among the 14 MIT research teams selected to receive Deshpande research grants for fall 2014. Initiated in 2002 through the MIT School of Engineering and made possible by a gift from Desh and Jaishree Deshpande, the Center’s mission is to move technologies from the laboratories at MIT to the marketplace. Read more.
  • Karl K. Berggren, professor of electrical engineering and computer science in MIT's EECS department and member of the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) and the Research Lab of Electronics (RLE) and EECS graduate student Adam McCaughan have devised the Nanocryotron — the Ntron for shor — a new approach to a 1950s design, that now shows promise for use in superconducting computer chips at 50 - 100 times energy efficiency and greater processing power. Read more.
  • Yesterday, Oc.t 8, 2014, Advanced Micro Devices, one of the world's biggest chip-design companies appointed Lisa Su, '91 SB, SM and '94 PhD, as its president and chief executive officer. She is the first female to head the 45 year old company and the latest female top executive at a major Silicon Valley tech company. Read more.
  • Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) research scientist Luis Fernando Velásquez-García and his group have devised a new way for manufacturing nanoscale devices cheaply using arrays of carbon nanotubes. Their work, published in the IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, promises a wide range of applications. read more
