  • Molybdenum-Disulfide (MoS2), like Graphene, is a one-molecule-thick material. But, MIT researchers including EECS Professors Tomas Palacios and Jing Kong have been able to produce complex electronic circuits from MoS2, a material that could have many more applications than graphene. This work is now reported in the journal Nano Letters.
  • Anantha P. Chandrakasan, EECS Department Head and the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor of Electrical Engineering at MIT has been selected as the winner of the 2013 IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in Solid-State Circuits. The citation for the award reads "For pioneering techniques in low-power digital and analog CMOS design."
  • 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.”
  • Research update: Chips with self-assembling rectangles - New technique allows production of complex microchip structures in one self-assembling step
  • Sarpeshkar teams with researchers at the Lincoln Laboratory to develop an implantable fuel cell built that could power neural prosthetics that help patients regain control of limbs.
  • EECS associate professor of electrical engineering Karl Berggren has teamed with MIT Materials Science and Engineering Prof. Caroline Ross to create 3D micro structures that have potential for multiple applications.
  • Area I: Applied Physics and Devices uses the foundation and underlying principles of physics to enable the engineering of complex integrated systems. The highlighted topics are electromagnetics, photonics, power, energy materials, devices, microsystems, nanotechnology, and physics of information.
  • Research in Area I: Circuits emphasizes electronic circuits and systems, microprocessor based control, and digital and analog signal processing. Design and practical implementation are emphasized. 
  • Academic programs for graduate students in the field of computer science lead to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, Engineer's, and either Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Science degree. 
  • Lying at the critical interface between computation and the physical world, Information Systems bridges the more traditionally computer science centric and more traditionally electrical engineering centric areas of the department.
