Office of Naval Research young investigators honored with Presidential Award

At UCLA, Dr. Aydogan Ozcan is leading research on telemedicine technologies, creating new kinds of microscopes so compact and lightweight that they can be attached to cell phones to screen water or blood for bacteria.

"We work without the use of conventional microscope lenseswe're building lens-free computational microscopes," Ozcan said. "We reconstruct images from the shadows of the specimens." Light passes through bacterial cells, creating shadows that are textured. The shadows are processed to construct images of thousands of cells that can then be identified. Ozcan is from Los Angeles.

Dr. Tomas Palacios: Gallium Nitride for Next-Generation Radars, Electronics

At MIT, Dr. Tomas Palacios is working on a new semiconductor called gallium nitride, recognized as the next-generation technology for electronics. The devices are being inserted into radar systems and power amplifiers.

"ONR has had a preeminent role in pushing gallium nitride from scientific curiosity to a commercial reality," Palacios said. "Through the PECASE award, we are developing new transistor structures to push the frequency performance of gallium nitride even further."

As a doctoral student at the University of California at Santa Barbara, Palacios helped to increase the maximum operating frequency of transistors to 40 gigahertz, from the single-digit gigahertz operation common at the time. One gigahertz falls in the frequency range of cellular phones. The 40 gigahertz limit increased to more than 100 gigahertz after Palacios continued the research at MIT. His goal is to push the performance to 1 terahertz, or 1,000 gigahertz. Originally from Jaen, Spain, Palacios considers Cambridge, Mass. as his hometown.
