Nader Engheta Receives Honorary Doctorate From Ukraine’s National Technical University
Nader Engheta, H. Nedwill Ramsey Professor of Electrical and Systems Engineering, has been awarded an honorary doctorate from Ukraine’s National Technical University. In addition to receiving his honorary degree, Dr. Engheta delivered several lectures to the students and faculty of the university focused on metamaterials, nanophotonics and optic visualization.
Engheta’s research interests span the fields of nanooptics and nanophotonics, metamaterials and plasmonics, and optical nanostructure modeling, including nanoantennas, nanocircuits, and nanosystems. Nader is also investigating bio-inspired sensing and imaging, as well as physics and reverse-engineering of polarization vision in nature. He and his group have been developing the concept of optical lumped nanocircuits based on material nanostructures, with the goal of opening the possibility of nanoelectronics with light.
