5 W HAT I S E NGINEERING ? ENGINEERING: A profession of ACQUIRING and APPLYING scientific knowledge in order to design new processes and products! It combines: Natural sciences Physics, Chemistry, Material science, etc. Mathematics

6 R ESEARCH IN S CIENCE Problem type: What is the underlying mechanism/theory? Scientific method Define the problem Research whats been done before Use creativity! Form a hypothesis (testable prediction) Test hypothesis (actual experiment) Analyze data (could be more involved than you would expect) Form conclusions Take appropriate actions based on conclusions

7 R ESEARCH IN E NGINEERING Research in applied science and product development Process Define the problem Research whats been done before Lots of thinking Create criteria May be known Use scientific method to determine Design product Computer simulations Optimization Improve it! Build a prototype and TEST!

8 R ESEARCH S IMULATION SOFTWARE E XPERIMENTS

9 W HAT IS Y OUR R ESEARCH T OPIC ? A PhD students answer usually sounds as strange as this: I am fighting windmills! Don Quixote Research is a very deep and focused activity driven by passion and curiosity! Thousands of researchers contribute to the knowledge of humanity

10 H OW IS R ESEARCH F UNDED ? Government Funding Department of Defense Department of Energy etc… Private Funding Industry and university cooperation Private research institutions

11 M ISSIONS OF NSF Initiate and support, scientific and engineering research and programs through grants and contracts Award graduate fellowships in the sciences and in engineering Support activities related to international cooperation, national security and the effects of scientific and technological applications upon society Support activities designed to increase the participation of women and minorities and others underrepresented in science and technology … The authors assume full responsibility of the content, and declare that they dont represent any mentioned institution

12 O UR P ROJECT OPTICAL ANTENNAS SEMICONDUCTORS OPTO-ELECTRONICS

13 R ADIATING AND RECEIVING ANTENNAS Device that transforms guided signal into radiated electromagnetic waves and vice versa f = MHz =75-38 cm f = MHz = m f =1-2 GHz =30-15cm f = 5 THz =60 m Physical dimensions are related to wavelength. wavelength =( speed of light )/( frequency ) =c/f A cellular phone antenna works at around 10 9 Hz=1GHz Our design frequency:193 Terahertz (10 12 Hz=1THz), almost 200,000 times the frequency of your phone! f = 193 THz =1.5 m

14 S EMICONDUCTORS AND S ILICON Semiconductor: Neither insulator, nor conductor Controllable behavior, switching from insulator to conductor or vice versa Basics of electronic devices Silicon: One of the most abundant elements

15 O PTICAL A NTENNA I NTEGRATED WITH S ILICON Micron-level design Fiberoptics integrated with semiconductors! Control of radiation level λ = 1550 nm (1 nm = m) f = c / λ = Hz ( f f of cell phone)
