Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Seminar: Terahertz Chip-Scale Technology
Abstract: Terahertz and high mm-Wave technology, through its ability to foster ultra-high speed dense networks and high resolution sensing applications, can address a new class of emerging and exciting applications in autonomous systems, robotics, cyber-physical systems and industrial quality control. While the last decade has seen tremendous advances in the field, enabling scalable and chip-scale THz technology is still a major challenge. In this talk, we will discuss how new design approaches crosscutting circuits/EM/systems partitions, to open new possibilities in enabling programmability and adaptability in these THz chip technologies, and how these can enable new applications in sensing, imaging, security and localization.
About the Speaker: Kaushik Sengupta received the B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees in electronics and electrical communication engineering from IIT Kharagpur, Kharagpur, India, in 2007, and the Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Caltech in 2012. In 2013, he joined Princeton's Department of Electrical Engineering as a faculty member, where he is an associate professor and director of graduate studies.
