What is engineering

What Is Engineering?

  • ENGINEERING:A profession of ACQUIRING and APPLYING scientific knowledge in order to design new processes and products! It combines:

    • Natural sciences

      • Physics, Chemistry, Material science, etc.

    • Mathematics


Research in science

Research in Science

  • Problem type: What is the underlying mechanism/theory?

  • Scientific method

    • Define the problem

      • Research what’s been done before

      • Use creativity!

    • Form a hypothesis (testable prediction)

    • Test hypothesis (actual experiment)

    • Analyze data (could be more involved than you would expect)

    • Form conclusions

    • Take appropriate actions based on conclusions


Research in engineering

Research in Engineering

  • Research in applied science and product development

  • Process

    • Define the problem

      • Research what’s been done before

      • Lots of thinking

    • Create criteria

      • May be known

      • Use scientific method to determine

    • Design product

      • Computer simulations

    • Optimization

      • Improve it!

    • Build a prototype and TEST!

What is your research topic

What is Your Research Topic?

  • A PhD student’s answer usually sounds as strange as this:

    “I am fighting windmills!”

    Don Quixote

  • Research is a very deep and focused activity driven by passion and curiosity!

  • Thousands of researchers contribute to the knowledge of humanity


How is research funded

How is Research Funded?

  • Government Funding

    • Department of Defense

    • Department of Energy

    • etc…

  • Private Funding

    • Industry and university cooperation

    • Private research institutions


Missions of nsf

Missions of NSF

  • Initiate and support, scientific and engineering research and programs through grants and contracts

  • Award graduate fellowships in the sciences and in engineering

  • Support activities related to international cooperation, national security and the effects of scientific and technological applications upon society

  • Support activities designed to increase the participation of women and minorities and others underrepresented in science and technology

  • The authors assume full responsibility of the content, and declare that they don’t represent any mentioned institution


Our project

Our Project

  • OPTICAL ANTENNAS

  • SEMICONDUCTORS

  • OPTO-ELECTRONICS


Radiating and receiving antennas

Radiating and receiving antennas

  • Physical dimensions are related to wavelength.

    • wavelength=(speed of light)/(frequency)

      =c/f

  • Device that transforms guided signal into radiated electromagnetic waves and vice versa

  • A cellular phone antenna works at around 109 Hz=1GHz

  • Our design frequency:193 Terahertz (1012Hz=1THz), almost 200,000 times the frequency of your phone!

f= 193 THz

=1.5m

f=20-400 MHz

=15-0.75m

f=400-800 MHz

=75-38 cm

f=1-2 GHz

=30-15cm

f= 5 THz

=60m


Semiconductors and silicon

Semiconductors and Silicon

  • Semiconductor: Neither insulator, nor conductor

    • Controllable behavior, switching from insulator to conductor or vice versa

    • Basics of electronic devices

  • Silicon: One of the most abundant elements


Optical antenna integrated with silicon

Optical Antenna Integrated with Silicon

  • Micron-level design

  • Fiberoptics integrated with semiconductors!

  • Control of radiation level

  • λ = 1550 nm (1 nm = 10-9 m)

  • f = c /λ = 1931012 Hz (f ≈ 2106f of cell phone)
