NSF Award Creates Partnership

Photonics Spectra
Aug 2012
The National Science Foundation awarded $3.3 million to the University of Texas at El Paso and the University of California, Santa Barbara, to establish a long-term partnership for materials science and engineering research, including solar energy. The award is part of the national Partnerships for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) grant program. The UTEP-UCSB PREM program broadens the participation and advanced degree attainment of underrepresented minorities, primarily Hispanic students, in materials science and engineering. It will enable students to participate in research internships at the partner university.

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...
