Professor Zhaowei Liu receives 2013 DARPA Young Faculty Award
Prof. Zhaowei Liu received the 2013 DARPA Young Faculty Award for "High-speed Nanophotonic LEDs at 100GHz and Beyond".
A group of early-career scientists at research universities have received grants totaling more than $12 million for basic research to address some of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) most challenging technological hurdles. From 226 applicants, 25 tenure-track faculty members were selected to receive up to $1 million each over the course of three years. The technology areas they will investigate align with DARPA's future program directions and were chosen with the ultimate goal of going beyond current research and providing new paths forward to realize tomorrow’s national security capabilities.
