Milos Popovic Receives Packard Fellowship

You are here

cue-headshot-milos_0.jpgMilos Popovic, assistant professor of electrical, computer, and energy engineering, has been awarded the prestigious Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering.

He is one of 16 scientific researchers from universities across the country to receive the 2012 fellowship, announced by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Each of the fellows will receive an unrestricted research grant of $875,000 over five years.

Popovic plans to investigate light-based devices for future microchip technology where light particles—photons—squeezed into nanometer-scale dimensions in silicon nanowires on chips give rise to unique physics. His research may enable ultra-low energy, “smart” self-adaptive circuits, and technology for communication and computation using quantum mechanics.

He joined the CU-Boulder faculty in 2010 after holding a postdoctoral position in the optics and quantum electronics group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and holds the GE/Donnelly Faculty Fellowship in the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering.
