Anqing Liu, ERC PhD student (RPI) was chosen to be the recipient of the 2015 Hillard B. Huntington Award.  This award was established in 1976 by friends and former students of the late Hillard B. Huntington, professor emeritus of Physics.  It is awarded at Commencement to an outstanding graduate student in Physics.

The Senate of Vilnius University, Lithuania, unanimously voted ERC Professor Michael Shur, (RPI) as an honorable professor of Vilnius University. Collaborating professor Gintas Tamulaitis from Vilnius said “There was no doubt about it.  Nobody else made such a strong direct impact to research at our university as you.  Thank you once again.”

Bob Karlicek, (Center Director) talks about how lighting can be improved by using the ‘Internet of Things’ in an article and video published by the Albany Times Union.  Robotic and sensor-enabled lighting systems will one day sense who is in a room and exactly how much light they need, depending on their specific activity. These lights could also be used to “see” or sense people who might be having medical emergencies using infrared technology without using cameras or invading privacy in places like hospitals, nursing homes and schools.

“We draw an analogy to the Google car,” Karlicek said. “Done properly, it will be safer, it will save fuel, and it will be better for people. And that’s what we want to do with lighting.”

Michael Deagen wins NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

Deagen_Michael-SQ500First year ERC graduate student Michael Deagen (Material Science Engineering (MSE), RPI) is among the winners of the prestigious 2015 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (NSFGRFP) competition. The GRFP offers awards directly to graduate students selected through a national competition, and provides three years of financial support within a five-year fellowship period.

Deagen, co-advised by Professors Chaitanya Ullal and Linda Schadler, works on advanced secondary optics for multi-color LED systems. The Department of energy estimates that by 2027 such LEDs could save the equivalent annual output of 44 large electric power plants. Michael hopes to understand at a fundamental level the propagation of visible light through 3-D mesoscopic periodic structures and how to efficiently fabricate these structures. Working at Rensselaer enables Michael to synergistically leverage the strengths of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center as well as the expertise of the Ullal and Schadler groups in the Materials Science Engineering Department.
