Engineering Research Gives Optical Switches the ’Contrast’ of Electronic Transistors
Current computer systems represent bits of information - the 1's and 0's of binary code - with electricity. Circuit elements, such as transistors, operate on these electric signals, producing outputs that are dependent on their inputs. Agarwal's research on photonic computing has been focused on finding the right combination and physical configuration of materials that can amplify and mix light waves in ways that are analogous to electronic computer components.

’Magnetoelectric’ material shows promise as memory for electronics
For News Media FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 11/29/17 Devices tend to store that information in two ways: through electric fields (think of a flash drive) or through magnetic fields (like a computer's spinning hard disk). Each method has advantages and disadvantages. However, in the future, our electronics could benefit from the best of each.

New theory could open potent new applications for light
One bar, two bars - it's an all-too-common problem. You're in a large building, driving in a remote area, or even right in the middle of a big city, but you can't stream video, check email or even make a phone call - because your cellular signal is weak. But the future may be different. University of Wisconsin-Madison electrical engineers have devised a new fundamental understanding that someday could lead to vast improvements in devices that gather or deliver information at any wavelength.

No more blackouts?
Today, more than 1.3 billion people are living without regular access to power, including more than 300 million in India and 600 million in sub-Saharan Africa. In these and other developing countries, access to a main power grid, particularly in rural regions, is remote and often unreliable. Increasingly, many rural and some urban communities are turning to microgrids as an alternative source of electricity.
