Big energy savings: Building the world's smallest electro-optic modulator
Researchers at Oregon State University have designed and fabricated the world’s smallest electro-optic modulator, which could mean major reductions in energy used by data centers and supercomputers. “This is by far the most exciting research I have ever done because of the impact the device will bring and because of the challenge it was for design and fabrication,” said Alan Wang, associate professor of electrical engineering in the OSU College of Engineering. For their invention, Wang and his doctoral student, Erwen Li, leveraged technology also developed at Oregon State: transparent conductive oxide materials. Science Daily
Students use computer skills to counter sex trafficking
Computer science students at OSU-Cascades used their skills Saturday to help a Bend-based nonprofit counter online sex trafficking. The event was not about hacking into computer software, but developing a more streamlined system for the nonprofit to use on a daily basis. Yong Bakos, a computer science instructor at OSU-Cascades, said he first met with members of the Guardian Group last year during a Hackathon event in Bend that included students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Tyler Nielsen, 20, a junior at OSU-Cascades, was a part of the voluntary event Saturday. He said he was motivated to help, in part from studying sex trafficking in a government class last year.

Shaping the future of robotics
When you imagine the technologically advanced world of the future, you are likely to think of robots. Robots are already sorting mail and manufacturing products, but they are not yet fully integrated into our lives in the way that science fiction depicts. Integrating robots into our lives is central to the research of new faculty members Julie A. Adams and Heather Knight. And yet their areas of research are very different. EECS
