Mosallaei Awarded $600K AFOSR Grant
ECE Professor Hossein Mosallaei was awarded a $600K Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) grant for "On-Demand Controllable Photonic Processors and Networks."
We propose a novel paradigm for flat on-chip optoelectronics featuring on-demand controllable front-end photonic processors and networks. Such platforms are consisted of addressable and controllable nanoantennas building blocks allowing for feedback controlled response and multifunctionality. These building blocks can serve as self-generating sensors or front-end preprocessors to sensor networks with different types of sensory transduction enabling wide bandwidth and high-speed readout in data acquisition as well as minimal loss in communications. The findings of this program will enable next generation IoT systems.
