Penn-led Team Receives DARPA Grant to Develop Electronic-photonic Chips for Highly Efficient Data Transfer

A team led by Firooz Aflatouni, Skirkanich Assistant Professor in Electrical and Systems Engineering, has received a grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a low-power integrated platform that can transfer and interpret over 100 terabytes of data per second — an amount of data tens of thousands of times larger than what a typical modem can handle.

Penn Engineers Design Nanostructured Diamond Metalens For Compact Quantum Technologies

A team of Penn Engineers led by Lee Bassett, Assistant Professor in Electrical and Systems Engineering, has found a better way to collect information from a single atom deep inside a crystal by creating a pattern on its surface called a metalens. This surface structure contains nanoscale features that bend and focus the light emitted by these atoms, despite being effectively flat. Read More

Marc Miskin’s Micro-Robots are Small Enough to be Injected by Syringe

Marc Miskin, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, has only been at Penn Engineering since January, but his work in micro-robotics is already making waves. His 70-micron-long robots are mass-produced from silicon wafers using microchip-manufacturing techniques, with each robot featuring legs made out of platinum and titanium, as well as a set of solar panels on its back.
