    Edl Schamiloglu, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering gets two R&D Awards totalling $1.41 Million

    Edl Schamiloglu, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering was awarded two Defense University Research Initiative Program (DURIP) grants. 

    The first award is from AFOSR for $960,156.45 and entitled "Instrumentation Support for AFOSR Center of Excellence on the Science of Electronics in Extreme Electromagnetic Environments."  Co-PI's on this award are ECE Associate Professor Payman Zarkesh-Ha and ECE Research Associate Professor Sameer Hemmady.  More than half of the funds on this award are to purchase high frequency signal and waveform analysis instrumentation.  This award complements the recently awarded 6-year, $6M AFRL/AFOSR Center of Excellence on the Science of Electronics in Extreme Electromagnetic Environments that Professor Schamiloglu directs (with the University of Maryland as a subawardee).

    The second award is from ONR for $451,875.00 and entitled "Enabling the Next Generation Magnetron with Diffraction Output and Other High Power Microwave Sources."  The Co-PI on this award is ECE Research Assistant Professor Sarita Prasad.  This award is to upgrade one of the two accelerators in Professor Schamiloglu's laboratory and to demonstrate the ability for a permanent magnet solenoid to replace an electromagnet on a high power magnetron with diffraction output.
