The file at the EEEL provides an evaluate of the Lab’s 4 divisions. The evaluate relies on 4 standards: alignment with nationwide priorities, motivation of its courses, technical benefit, and technical application caliber. The record additionally offers a glance at 3 extra issues: staffing and investment, overseas concerns, and the making plans strategy.

The current device, however, is not based on an indium phosphide (InP) platform, which would be suitable for use at 1550 nm. A symposium on optical fiber measurements is no longer organized by EEEL. Perhaps EEEL personnel, working with the Optical Fiber Communications Conference, could help to present a symposium on this topic at the conference. The research staff routinely develops unique, patentable works. Given its responsibility for disseminating the research work, EEEL should reexamine its intellectual property and licensing practices.

Both considerations will require more staff to achieve continuity of expertise in essential areas and critical mass in emerging areas. Much of the cutting-edge research is being performed by temporary staff, while permanent staff are increasingly involved in managing the projects and applying for outside agency (OA) funding. While this mode of staffing can be cost effective, the work being done by these researchers, both permanent and temporary, will make them attractive candidates for jobs outside EEEL, aggravating the problem of long-term planning, vision, and sustainability.

The Optoelectronics Division should consider adding projects on promising new photonic technologies such as organic photonics, including organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Perhaps this effort could be coupled with the ongoing effort in the display group. There are some specific opportunities for further leveraging existing projects. One example is the coupling between the Semiconductor Electronics Division and the work in the Electromagnetic Division on spintronics (specifically, microwave oscillators).
