Adrian Tang Wins First Place at Broadcom Foundation’s Inaugural University Research Competition
Grad Student Adrian Tang was selected as the first place winner at Broadcom Foundation’s Inaugural University Research Competition among other international university representatives. According to Broadcom, Adrian Tang’s research entitled, “A 144 Ghz High Resolution Sub-Carrier Successive Approximation Radar for Thz Security Screening” was selected for its “study of radars for low‐cost, low‐power and portable THz imaging systems which have many new applications in security screening, trace gas detection and biomedical imaging.”
The awarding was held during Broadcom’s annual Technical Conference June 6-7 in Irvine, CA where all 12 student finalists were invited together with their academic advisor to present their projects to over 400 attendees. The finalists came from Oregon State University, Stanford University, Texas A&M University, Tsinghua University in China, University of Pavia in Italy, University of California in Davis, University of California in Irvine, University of California in Los Angeles, University of California in San Diego and University of Michigan.
Adrian Tang was supported by his academic advisor, EE Chair and Professor M.-C. Frank Chang. Adrian recently finished his doctorate degree and is the recipient of Distinguished PhD Dissertation Award in Circuits & Embedded Systems for year 2012. His dissertation is on CMOS MM-Wave Imaging Techniques. Adrian has joined NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA to work on 680 GHz FMCW based imaging radar systems in the 389A Sub-millimeter Wave Advanced Technology Group. At the 2012 IEEE International Microwave Symposium in Montreal, Canada, Adrian will present four different papers two of which are candidates for Best Paper Award.
