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

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)
