Rohatgi Receives $1.1 Million Contract from the U.S. Energy Department

On Sept. 14, Ajeet Rohatgi, Regents’ Professor in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was named one of the 19 funding recipients in the Photovoltaics Research and Development Program as part of the U.S. DoE SunShot Initiative.

Technology development for next-generation RF systems is driven by spectrum access and size, weight, and power (SWaP). Fiber optic cabling allows hundreds of GHz of electrical bandwidth to be distributed through multiple kilometers while experiencing less attenuation (0.2dB/km) than a meter of coaxial cable. Coaxial and waveguide cabling also weighs almost 10 times as much as fiber, which is critical on airborne or seaborne vehicles where RF front-ends may be physically dislocated from transmitter components.
