Knezevic awarded $500K for nanoscale power research

Aided by a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, Electrical and Computer Engineering Associate Professor Irena Knezevic will simulate how charge carriers in electronic devices interact with lattice vibrations and electromagnetic waves. "These three-pronged simulations will advance our understanding of how energy is lost at the nanoscale," says Knezevic. Her findings could lead to more efficient designs for electronics, photonics and energy-harvesting devices.
