Qiang Lin receives CAREER grant

Congratulations to Qiang Lin, Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and of Optics, for receiving a $400,000, five-year Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program grant from the National Science Foundation. This is one of the NSF's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of their organization's mission. The grant will help Qiang's research on exploring transformative approaches for generating high-purity entangled photonic quantum states, on a silicon chip, that are capable of diverse applications for both long-haul quantum communication and on-chip integrated quantum computing. Well done, Qiang!
