Electrical Engineering Professors Naveen Verma, Sigurd Wagner, James Sturm and Gerard Wysocki were honored at the Celebrate Princeton Invention for their role in bringing research innovations to the marketplace.
Profs. Gerard Wysocki, Hakan Tureci and Andrew Houck are among the recipients of the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund award. Prof. Wysocki, together with Prof. Daniel Sigman, the Dusenbury Professor of Geological and Geophysical Sciences, have received this award for creating a nitrogen sensor that can monitor environmental change. Profs. Tureci and Houck have received this award for developing a quantum computer which could potentially answer questions currently impossibl
Prof. Gerard Wysocki and Postdoctoral Research Associate Michal Nikodem have been awarded second place in the 7th Innovation Forum organized by the Princeton’s Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education. The technology is based on Chirped Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy, or CLaDS, a method for increased speed and sensitivity in detection of potentially harmful industrial gas emissions and atmospheric greenhouse gases.
Prof. Gerard Wysocki has been named one of the finalist in the 2011 Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists competition. The New York Academy of Sciences Blavatnik Awards were created to acknowledge the excellence of young scientists and engineers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Prof. Gmachl received one of the first two awards from the Schmidt Fund. Prof. Claire Gmachl will collaborate with Prof. Gerard Wysocki to develop fingertip sensors for diabetics building on Gmachl’s work on the development of quantum cascade lasers and Wysocki's expertise in the development of highly sensitive, compact optical sensor systems. The Schmidt Fund was established in 2009 by Google CEO and Princeton
Prof. Gerard Wysocki is the recipient of the 2010 Masao Horiba Award for his innovative work on "ultra-sensitive in-situ detection of reactive chemicals based on laser dispersion effects". HORIBA Group, one of the corporate leaders in development and manufacturing of analytical instrumentation, established an award to recognize young scientists worldwide working in the field of analytical science. This award is intended to support scientists, outside the HORIBA Group companies, who early in
