Research Highlights

Professor Joseph Bardin (principal investigator) of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UMass Amherst and College of Engineering and Dean Sanjay Raman (co-principal investigator) have received a $500,000 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), administered by the Office of Naval Research. The title of this DARPA project is “Cryogenic T-MUSIC Circuits for Quantum Computing.” T-MUSIC is a technology that combines advanced silicon-germanium with advanced CMOS to enable ultra-wide bandwidth...

Assistant Professor Amir Arbabi and his Post Doctoral Research Associate Andrew McClung of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department have received a Manning/Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) Award from the UMass Applied Proof-of-Concept Seed Fund Program. The main objective of the funded project is to demonstrate prototypes of a solid-state, low-cost, miniature lidar system with high resolution, low power consumption, and large field-of-view. Such lidar systems are highly desirable for multiple applications,...

Despite the pandemic, the year 2020 has proven to be an amazingly productive year for Jun Yao, an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department and an adjunct faculty member in the Biomedical Engineering Department. During 2020, his groundbreaking work on new biomaterials harvested from the humble microbe Geobacter has inspired articles in such renowned scientific journals as Nature, Nature Communications, and NanoResearch and subsequently stoked international media...

Raytheon Technologies has just released three interrelated videos of the storm-chasing research carried out by faculty and students of the Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory, or MIRSL, in collaboration with faculty and students from Purdue University while chasing tornadoes and severe thunderstorms throughout the Midwest and deploying a sophisticated Raytheon radar prototype unit known as Skyler. 

Watch the videos under the umbrella title of Radar Reimagined: ...

Researchers at the Engineering Research Center for Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere (CASA) contributed to a recent successful joint demonstration in Fort Worth, Texas, of an unmanned aircraft system by Bell Textron Inc. and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The CASA team provided an intuitive, integrated display to give remote pilots of the Bell Autonomous Pod Transport 70 (APT 70) enhanced weather risk awareness, including weather data from CASA’s X-band radar network, which is deployed in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. CASA was...

Professor Emeritus David Pozar of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department has received the 2020 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Field Award for Distinguished Achievement. Pozar was selected by the AP-S “for significant contributions to the electromagnetic analysis, development, and design of microstrip phased arrays and reflectarrays, and for educational leadership and service to the electromagnetics community.”

The Field Award for Distinguished Achievement is the highest honor given by the AP-S...

Jun Yao, an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and an adjunct professor in the Biomedical Engineering Department at UMass Amherst, is the principal investigator on a very significant, $1,474,272 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Yao’s project is developing ultra-low-power electronic components and systems for signal retrieval, processing, and storage with power consumption similar to biological systems in living organisms, which require much less power than currently available in...

Professor Wayne Burleson of the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department coauthored an pioneering new report, titled Grand Challenges for Embedded Security Research in a Connected World, resulting from a forward-looking workshop on Leadership in Embedded Security, as sponsored by the ...
