Misha Rabinovich named Editor in Chief of IEEE Internet Computing magazine

Misha RabinovichMisha Rabinovich has started his tenure as the Editor in Chief of the important IEEE Internet Computing magazine. The magazine has an impact factor that places it 3rd out of all IEEE magazines and 13th out of all of IEEE's 125 publications. The internet affects us - personally and professionally - in ways that were not even imagined even several years ago. The future promises even greater importance of the area of internet computing and acting as Editor in Chief of this prestigious technical publication is indeed an honor (and a major responsibility!).

Misha's research in the area of Internet Security was also highlighted in an article, "Network Defense Gone Wrong" in the February issue of the IEEE Spectrum.

Read Misha's "debut" editorial in the magazine (follow the links to the Jan/Feb issue in 2011).

EECS Students Place Third in the annual Cyber Security Awareness Week (CSAW) challenge

EECS students Aswin Krishna, Seetharam Narasimhan (captain) and Xinmu Wang placed third in the Embedded Systems Challenge at the 7'th Cyber Security Awareness Week (CSAW) challenges held at Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-POLY). Over three hundred students competed for prizes and scholarships by solving difficult simulated security crises.

Microelectronic Circuitry May Restore Healthy Brain Function After Injury

Microelectronic CircuitryPedram Mohseni, Assistant Professor of EECS at CWRU, and Randolph J. Nudo, a professor of molecular and integrative physiology at the University of Kansas Medical Center, believe repeated communications between distant neurons in the weeks after injury may spark long-reaching axons to form and connect. As DailyTech reports, “this type of work was inspired by the brain injuries and trauma the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan face.”

"Electromechanical Computing at 500°C with Silicon Carbide"

nanoelectromechanical switchLogic circuits capable of operating at high temperatures can alleviate expensive heat-sinking and thermal-management requirements of modern electronics and are enabling for advanced propulsion systems. Replacing existing complementary metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors with silicon carbide (SiC) nanoelectromechanical system (NEMS) switches is a promising approach for low-power, high-performance logic operation at temperatures higher than 300°C, beyond the capability of conventional silicon technology. These switches are capable of achieving virtually zero off-state current, microwave operating frequencies, radiation hardness, and nanoscale dimensions. Here, we report a microfabricated electromechanical inverter with SiC complementary NEMS switches capable of operating at 500°C with ultralow leakage current.
