November 30, 2023
Associate Professor Shima Shahab and PhD Graduate Research Assistant Moustafa Sayed Ahmed have been named to the 2023 APL Rising Stars Collection by the American Institute of Physics for research in the area of interdisciplinary applied physics.
Shahab and Sayed Ahmed's paper, which appeared in early 2023 in Applied Physics Letters, introduces a novel method for developing ultrasound power transfer systems with much improved efficiency, based on contactless energy transfer using ultrasonic wave propagation. Wireless charging of biomedical implants to sensors in inaccessible environments are among the uses.
The list of rising stars features notable papers featuring principal investigators who completed a PhD within the last ten years. These papers were identified by the editors and selection committee as particularly outstanding among a field of excellent candidates. The collection of 34 papers represents less than 2% of the journal's annual total volume.
