ECE Faculty Members Win ADEC Awards for Research Excellence

Published: 21 February 2016

A research team of ECE department won ADEC Award for Research Excellence for developing a new low-power device based on a spintronic semiconductor chip which can detect tiny amounts of material. This new device could greatly expand the types of samples that can be analyzed by magnetic resonance (the technology used in an MRI) and give scientists and medical professionals the possibility to develop new applications for magnetic resonance across a broad range of fields, from diagnostic medicine to quantum computing.
