In this work, WNCG Prof. Andrea Alù, WNCG student Jing Bai and Prof. Khai Q. Le from Hoa Sen University in Vietnam theoretically explore signatures of plasmonic Fano interferences in a sub-wavelength-plasmonic metamolecule. Consisting of closely packed asymmetric gold nanodimers, these signatures lead to the possibility of generating multiple Fano resonances in the scattering spectrum. This spectral feature is attributed to the interference between bright and dark plasmonic modes sustained by the constituent nanodimers.
Sensing an incoming signal is typically associated with absorbing a portion of its energy, inherently perturbing the measurement and creating reflections and shadows. Here, in contrast, Prof. Andrea Alù and students Romain Fleury and Dimitrios Sounas demonstrate a non-invasive, shadow-free, invisible sensor for airborne sound waves at audible frequencies, which fully absorbs the impinging signal, without at the same time perturbing its own measurement or creating a shadow.
Manassas Virginia, January 28, 2015 - The Institute of Navigation (ION) presented its Thomas L. Thurlow Award to Dr. Todd Humphreys at the ION International Technical Meeting (ITM)in Dana Point, California, January 26-28, 2015.
Dr. Humphreys was recognized for contributions that enhance radionavigation security and robustness in the face of intentional spoofing and natural interference.
WNCG Industrial Affiliates, faculty and students come together for an annual event focused on WNCG's greatest resource; a collection of some of the world's brightest students. Open House provides recruitment opportunities to Industrial Affiliate Members through close access to WNCG student research and resumes, as well as creates opportunities for one-on-one meetings with WNCG students.
Prof. Gustavo de Veciana, Cullen Trust Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and member of WNCG, has been appointed member of the Board of Trustees of IMDEA Networks Institute. The Board is the highest organ of governance, representation and administration of the Spanish research Institute.
IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3000 submitted scientific papers. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference. The conference meets once a year in North America and attracts roughly 2000 leading scientists and researchers and industry leaders from all around the world.
