Dan Sievenpiper earned his PhD in 1999 from UCLA, where he invented the high-impedance electromagnetic surface. Dan joined HRL Laboratories later that year, and during the next 11 years, Dan and his team developed new electromagnetic structures with an emphasis on small, conformal, tunable, and steerable antennas.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, has announced the launch of its first podcast, HRL’s History of the Future, which will focus on the famed Hughes Research facility’s past and HRL’s present advancements in science and technology.
An HRL Laboratories, LLC, research team has published a paper in the March issue of MRS Bulletin, a journal of the Materials Research Society, that sits squarely at the intersection of materials science and quantum computing. The paper, “Metamorphic Materials for Quantum Computing,” explores the demands that silicon-germanium (SiGe) quantum dot heterostructures impose on the underlying substrate, the ways in which the metamorphic substrate’s properties impact device performance, and how performance limitations may be overcome.
Researchers from HRL Laboratories are among the honorees of Popular Mechanics’ 2012 Breakthrough Awards for their development of ultralight microlattice materials.
