ECE Associate Professor Josep Jornet’s paper on “Uplink Multi-User Beamforming on Single RFChain mmWave WLANs” was received the best paper award at the 2021 IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications.
Curiosity and engagement are top traits of high-potential talented students. To tap into and nurture this excitement, the College of Engineering introduced an innovative program in Fall 2020: Undergraduate Program for Leaders In Future Transformation (UPLIFT). UPLIFT Scholars are paired with a faculty mentor and work in their mentor’s lab conducting research starting their first semester of their first year of study at Northeastern. By targeting research in the fall, a directed study (general elective) in the spring, a Research Experiences for Undergraduates in the summer, and additional experiences thereafter, scholars become competitively positioned for graduate work, national scholarships, and other accolades. Scholars also receive programming and community building opportunities through Northeastern’s Center for STEM Education.

Northeastern University’s Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things (WIOT), along with mobile and video technology research and development company InterDigital, is hosting a virtual 6G symposium to create excitement and increase public awareness and engagement in articulating a strong vision for 6G.
ECE Associate Professor Josep Jornet published a collaborative paper in the prestigious journal Science, titled: “Tunable Topological Charge Vortex Microlaser.” With COVID-19, the volume of information that the Internet needs to carry has drastically increased. To be able to keep up with the user needs and enable new forms of online interaction, new ways to be able to transmit more information over existing infrastructure are needed. In collaboration with groups at the University of Pennsylvania and Duke University, Jornet and the research team have theoretically designed and experimentally demonstrated the first on-chip tunable laser for orbital angular momentum (OAM) modulation and multiplexing.
ECE Associate Professor Josep Jornet was recently awarded a $900,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to be part of a collaborative project ($2.7 million total) focused on developing new Terahertz (THz) devices and their control algorithms.
ECE Associate Professor Josep Jornet was awarded an AFRL grant for “Protocol Stack Design for Frequency-agile Ultra-broadband Airborne Networks in the THz Band,” and aims to design, analyze, and experimentally demonstrate new THz communication protocols for airborne networks.
