RU Engineering, Columbia, NYU Pushing Limits of Wireless-Networking
Dipankar Raychaudhuri and Ivan Seskar, Rutgers engineering professors, are leading a $22.5 million NSF-funded wireless test bed research team that includes Columbia, NYU, and the City of New York, along with industry partners. The open-access COSMOS platform is an outdoor laboratory that will allow researchers to test entirely new classes of wireless applications and push the bandwidth and latency limits of 4G, and even fifth-generation wireless technology.

ICEBERG.Petermann_Credit_Lynch.jpg ICEBERG to Unravel Mystery of the Arctic
The remote Arctic region remains largely a mystery to scientists due to its sheer magnitude. The three-year collaborative project, ICEBERG, is determined to change that. Funded by a $1.85 million National Science Foundation grant led by electrical and computer engineering associate professor Shantenu Jha, ICEBERG will employ supercomputers to analyze high resolution images of the Arctic taken via satellite.

HarryPotter_Shutterstock.jpg Creating Harry Potter-style Invisibility Cloaks that Hide Objects from Sound
Andrew Norris, mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, is a pioneer in a field known as cloaking, which can help make underwater objects appear invisible. He has created a model for directing sound waves to go around—instead of colliding with—an object, hiding it from detection. His research could lead to improved acoustic technology, including better imaging under water, and biomedical applications, such as enhanced imaging of tissues. Read more here>>
