ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 23, 2011 — Dr. Anupama B. Kaul has joined the National Science Foundation’s Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems Div. as its new program director in Electronics, Photonics and Magnetic Devices (EPMD), the foundation announced.

Kaul comes to the organization from the Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology, where she managed interdisciplinary research programs in nanomaterials and devices for sensing, electronics and optical applications. Prior to JPL, she worked at Motorola Labs, where she conducted research on radio- frequency MEMS switches and components derived from organic materials on flexible substrates.

In her new position, Kaul will lead the EPMD program, which seeks to improve the fundamental understanding of devices and components based on the principles of micro- and nanoelectronics, photonics, magnetics, optoelectronics, electromechanics, electromagnetics and related physical phenomena.

A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
