Texas ECE graduate student, Amritesh Rai, was awarded the IEEE Region 5 Outstanding Individual Achievement Award at the 2019 IEEE Region 5 Annual Conference & Business Meeting held earlier this month in Lafayette, LA. Amritesh was awarded in recognition for his role as the IEEE Region 5 Young Professionals Chair, for helping with the regional logistics during the 2018 IEEE-USA Future Leaders Forum that was held in Austin, and for establishing the first-ever graduate student-led Chapter of IEEE in the whole of IEEE Region 5.
News and Events
The United States Department of Energy (US DOE) recently announced an investment of $36 Million in a number of projects to improve situational awareness of solar energy systems, especially at critical infrastructure sites.
The enhanced power of the new measuring technique to characterize materials at scales much smaller than any current technologies will accelerate the discovery and investigation of 2D, micro- and nanoscale materials.
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.
