|Penn Engineers Lay Out Theory for Metamaterial That Acts as an Analog Computer|
A collaboration led by Nader Engheta, H. Nedwill Ramsey Professor, shows that metamaterials can be designed to do "photonic calculus" as a light wave goes through them. The team's theoretical material can perform a specific mathematical operation on a light wave's profile, such as finding its first or second derivative, as the light wave passes through the material.

|Physicist, Roboticist, Engineer...Coach?|
|Dan Lee was deep into his doctoral research at Brookhaven National Laboratory late one night when a power outage forced the Long Island reactor into lockdown mode. As alarms shrieked, Lee called upon his inner Hollywood stuntman; his narrow escape to the outside was made with an acrobatic drop and roll underneath a massive closing door. Once safely back at MIT in Cambridge, Lee began to explore research in fields that didn't require large amounts of time in nuclear reactors.|
