  • In a broad new assessment of the status and prospects of solar photovoltaic technology, MIT researchers including Vladimir Bulović, Associate Dean for Innovation and the Fariborz Maseeh (1990) Professor of Emerging Technology and Joel Jean, EECS graduate student and lead author in the journal Energy & Environmental Science say that it is “one of the few renewable, low-carbon resources with both the scalability and the technological maturity to meet ever-growing global demand for electricity.” Read more.
  • MIT Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan and Associate Department Heads Bill Freeman, Silvio Micali, and David Perreault announced in February 2015, the promotions of eight faculty members in the department. Professors Adalsteinsson, Daniel, Golland, and Torralba are promoted to full professor. Professors Chilpala, Polyanskiy and Vaikuntanathan are promoted to associate professor. The promotions are effective July 1, 2015. Read more.
  • Professor Vladimir Bulovic holds the Fariborz Maseeh Chair in Emerging Technology at MIT, heads the MIT.nano project, and co-leads the MIT Innovation Initiative. His ONE Lab has been a hotbed of scientific discovery... Read more.
  • This week, at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE's) International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the group of Anantha Chandrakasan, EECS Department Head and the Joseph F. and Nancy P. Keithley Professor in Electrical Engineering at MIT, will present a new transmitter design that reduces power leakage when transmitters are idle — greatly extending battery life and ultimately enabling the potential for the transmission of data needed for the "Internet of things".
