Edl Schamiloglu’s group is actively working on their $1.2M ONR grant, awarded in 2006. This is a collaborative effort with professors Christodoulou and Gilmore and with the University of Michigan and SAIC. Professor Schamiloglu presented invited talks describing this research at the BEAMS Conference in Xi’an, China, and at the EUROEM Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland, both in July 2008. Professor Schamiloglu’s research is also supported by a new three-year grant from AFOSR (together with Professor Gilmore, and supplemented by a 2008 DURIP Instrumentation Grant) that focuses on minimizing surface plasmas within high-power microwave sources. A recent trend in Professor Schamiloglu’s research is increased support from industry. He has support from Ktech Corporation to study frequency-tunable relativistic backward-wave oscillators, and he has an STTR with Sienna Technologies to develop novel high dielectric constant polymers for pulsed power applications.
