IMG Social Media Committee

The IMG Social Media Committee is now up and running! This committee will be working to promote IMG on social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Furthermore, the committee is also looking for submissions of research images produced by IMG students, professors, and researchers! An image will be selected weekly as the "IMG Image of the Week" and posted on Twitter. Each month, one of these images will also be selected as the "IMG Image of the Month" and posted on the IMG website. Please see the flier above for more details. And be sure to follow IMG on Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn!

Dr. Xie Elected SPIE Fellow

We congratulate Dr. Xie for being elected as a SPIE Fellow!

The annual recognition of Fellows provides an opportunity for SPIE to acknowledge Members for their outstanding technical contributions and service to SPIE. Dr. Xie was awarded for his achievements in optical MEMS & optical endoscopic imaging.

More detailed information is available here and on SPIE website.

Dr. Tabrizian Receives $500K NSF CAREER Award

We congratulate Dr. Roozbeh Tabrizian for receiving an NSF CAREER Award for his project, “Active Nano-Acoustic Waveguide Matrix to Tackle Signal Processing Limits: Enabling Wideband and Nonreciprocal Integrated Communication Beyond the UHF.”

Dr. Tabrizian’s five-year, $500K grant will support his research on novel germanium-based nano-acoustic signal processors that enhance access to radio spectrum resources. These novel processors will work towards alleviating radio spectrum overcrowding due to scarcity, as well as enable ultra-fast data communication, required for emerging amenities in a modern society.
