O'Shea, Ephremides, and Neumann Receive NRL Research Awards

Two ECE faculty members and one ECE alumnus co-authored papers that received Alan Berman Research Publication Awards from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).

NRL's Alan Berman Research Publication Awards honor superior scientific accomplishments in the field of naval research, and seek to promote continued research excellence. Of the 333 papers considered for the awards, 34 were selected for recognition.

ECE Department Chair Patrick O'Shea, along with lead author Kevin Jensen (NRL/IREAP), ECE alumnus Nathan Moody, and Donald Feldman (IREAP), co-authored an award-winning paper titled "A Photoemission Model for Low Work Function Coated Metal Surfaces and Its Experimental Validation." The research team developed a time-dependent model that accounts for the effects of laser heating and thermal propagation on photo emission.

ECE Professor Anthony Ephremides (ECE/ISR), along with Gam Nguyen and Jeffrey Wieselthier, co-wrote an award-winning paper titled "Accurate Capture Models and their Impact on Random Access in Multiple-Destination Networks." In the paper, the researchers extend existing models to better characterize the impact of the physical layer on random-access performance for both single-destination and multiple-destination networks.

ECE alumnus Jonathan Neumann, a 2005 Ph.D. graduate and 2000 B.S. graduate, and a former advisee of Dr. O'Shea, co-wrote a paper titled "VNIR/SWIR Target Detection Comparison from the MAT Data Collect." Neumann, along with his co-authors Trijntje Downes, Robert Leathers, Eric Allman, and Michael Wilson, examine the results of two sensor systems.
