Three Graduate Students received Yan Huo *94 Fellowship

Three graduate students have been awarded the Yan Huo *94 Graduate Fellowship in Electrical Engineering: Yushan Liu, advised by Prateek Mittal, Prashanth Venkataram, advised by Alejandro Rodriguez, and Ross Kerner, advised by Barry Rand.  The fellowship is for the 2017 - 2018 academic year and is used to support post-general exam PhD students.

Phones vulnerable to location tracking even when GPS services off

Princeton researchers (Prof. Prateek Mittal, Prof. Niraj Jha, EE Grad Students Arsalan Mosenia and Xiaoliang Dai) have found that smartphone data can be used to track users even when the phone’s GPS is off. 

Breakthrough could launch organic electronics beyond cellphone screens

An international team of researchers including Princeton (Prof. Antoine Kahn, graduate students Xin Lin, Kyung Min Lee, Michael A. Fusella, and Fengyu Zhang) have used ultraviolet light to split molecules that had been added to a semiconductor. The reaction involves transferring an electron from the added molecule to the semiconductor. This process, called doping, results in a surprisingly stable structure and improves the conductivity of the semiconductor dramatically. The discovery points the way to more widespread use of an advanced technology generally known as organic electronics.

Old phones get new life in high-powered computer servers
