WelcomeWelcome to the Drexel IEEE Graduate Forum website!! We are a graduate student branch of IEEE focused on catering to the graduate student body in ECE, Biomedical Sciences and Engineering and related branches of engineering. We focus on the specific interests and needs of graduate students and organize technical and social events to engage graduate students. We also promote the benefits of IEEE membership to graduate students and encourage them to join this worldwide community of engineers.
Our annual research symposium is around the corner and we have some exciting events for the students. The symposium will include three excellent talks from prestigious faculties on a three very interesting topics. Another highlight of the event will be student research poster session where graduate students will showcase their on going research. We are also giving away prizes to the top three posters. Registration begins at 9.30 AM and we will have lunch at 12.30 PM. We will finally conclude the day with a reception at 5.00 PM.
Please see the information below and read the submitted abstracts here.

Drexel IEEE Graduate Forum invites all interested student to attend our distinguished seminar speaker Dr. Daniel Dolfi. Details regarding his talk and his bio can be found below.
Novel Optoelectronics Devices for Future Radar and Communication Systems
By Dr. Daniel Dolfi
Thales Research and Technology, Palaiseau, France
Thursday September 27, 2012
10:30-11:30 AM, Bossone 302
Abstract: Thales Research & Technology (TRT) is a basic research of Thales, one of the leading defense electronics and aerospace companies in the world. Basic research are conducted in four research centers in France, UK, the Netherlands, and Singapore. TRT Physics is involved with a variety of fundamental problems in physics that are finding applications in future Radar, Defense Electronics, and Communication systems. This talk first provides an overview of current activities at TRT- Physics with emphasis on nanomagnetism and spintronics, high temperature superconductors for filters, sensors, and stable oscillators, nanoelectronics, carbon nano-tubes for field emission in both RF and X rays, applications of quantum physics in cold atoms on chip and magnetometry, nano-structured based devices for photonic integrated circuits, fiberbased high power laser sources and optical parametric oscillators for RF applications in Lidar and active imaging. Finally this talk focuses on recent developments in opto-electronic devices for applications of processing of microwave signals up to THz that finds many applications in defense electronics.
Daniel Dolfi Graduated from the “Ecole Supérieure d’Optique”, Orsay, (1986), received the PhD degree from University Paris XI Orsay (1993) and the “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” in 2008. He joined Thomson-CSF Corporate Research Laboratory (now TRT-France), in 1986 where he is currently Director of the Physics Dept. of TRT. His main research interests include optoelectronic generation and processing of microwave and THz signals, non-linear optics in fibers, opto-electronic devices (down to nano-scale) and sub-systems (e.g. sensors), and active optronic systems (lidars and imaging systems). Dr Dolfi has about 70 publications in refereed journals, about 130 communications in international conferences (20 of them invited) and about 60 registered patents. He is Fellow of European Optical Society (EOS) and Optical Society of America (OSA).
