Chen Tsai May 10, 2013
A Life of Accomplishment

UC Irvine Chancellor’s Professor Chen Tsai has devoted nearly half a century to seeking innovation in the field of electrical engineering and applied science. His efforts recently were recognized by the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society, which awarded him its 2013 lifetime achievement award.

Tsai, who came to The Henry Samueli School of Engineering in 1980 from Carnegie Mellon University, was recognized with the society’s highest honor for his pioneering contributions to the “science and technology of integrated acousto-optics and magneto-optics, scanning acoustic microscopy, and ultrasonic monodisperse micro-droplet generation.”

Broadcom Foundation Funds Graduate Engineering Fellowships at UC Irvine’s The Henry Samueli School of Engineering

Universities that help graduate students offset the rising costs of earning an advanced degree are better positioned to recruit top talent. And with several years of tuition increases and state funding decreases, graduate schools are looking to corporate partners for support. The Henry Samueli School of Engineering at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is pleased to announce that Broadcom Foundation has pledged such assistance in the form of graduate fellowships. 

Broadcom Foundation will contribute $400,000 over two years to establish graduate fellowships at the Samueli School. The gift will fund four electrical engineering graduate students each year for the next two years.

TechPortal startup offers technology breakthrough with vast market potential

It was November 2008, and doctoral student Fred Tzeng was brainstorming research projects with his adviser, Payam Heydari, UC Irvine professor of electrical engineering and computer science. After much discussion, they conceived of a concept – a way to more intelligently convert analog signals (sound, light, heat, motion) to the digital format required by modern electronics, using 10 times less power than the current conversion process.

If it worked, their low-power analog-to-digital converter technology would extend battery life, enhance functionality and lower the cost of portable electronics.
