Lightwave Lab Awarded “Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund”

As part of the Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund, we are developing a technology that could make high-speed Internet access as widely available as cellphone service by enabling data transmission in a vastly underused region of the spectrum, the millimeter-wave regime.

Bhavin Shastri named a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow

Our postdoc, Dr. Bhavin Shastri has been awarded Canada's most prestigious postdoctoral award, the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. Named after Sir Frederick Banting (Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of insulin), this fellowship is valued at $70,000 per year over two years. Dr.
