The system is a result of research work that resulted in a myriad of sensing devices for LIDAR, low-concentration biomarker detection, heavy metal detection, air-and water-pollution sensing, 40 Gbit/sec EO modulator, and wide band RF sensors. 

Texas ECE PhD student Kyle McNicholas won one of two Best Paper awards at the 2018 Electronic Materials Conference (EMC) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in June 2018.

The grant is part of a $7.5 million initiative by the DOE to support the research and development of innovative designs that will strengthen the resilience of the U.S. power grid. 

Prof. Huang was chosen for demonstrating “a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on the quality of life, economic development and welfare of society.” 

The research proposes "novel SRAM technology aimed at decoupling the conflicting low leakage power and low supply voltage design requirement using emerging nano-devices such as memristor and selector switches."
