Industry/University Cooperative Research Center on Optical Wireless Technologies

Under the auspices of the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Pennsylvania State University (PSU), Tufts University and the University of California-Riverside are collaborating to establish an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center on optical wireless technologies, with PSU as the lead institution. A planning workshop will take place on June 8-10 2010 at Pennsylvania State University in University Park, PA.

This is a planning meeting to discuss the potentials to establish an interdisciplinary research Center, providing leadership to develop a new generation of environment-friendly, extremely wideband optical wireless technology applications, employing solid-state devices for communications, networking, imaging and remote sensing applications. The primary goals of this workshop are to initiate formal partnership with various industry partners and national laboratories that have an interest in optical wireless applications designs, and to discuss fundamental issues and topics for research. The envisioned Center has the potential to improve the profitability of industry and technical leadership of government agencies and laboratories by developing new optical wireless devices that will improve the named applications and reduce energy consumption and pollution.

The workshop will be of interest to engineers, leaders and executives in visionary companies that have a goal to extend and enhance their products and services with newly designed optical sources, transmitters, detectors and receivers. Registration details can be found at this link.
