Department Head: John E. McInroy

The program of study outlined in the curriculum has been planned to provide the depth of understanding necessary to meet challenges of changing technology while being flexible enough to allow students to pursue in-depth study in the area of electrical engineering. The fundamental electrical engineering education consists of courses in circuits, networks, electromagnetics, electronics, digital systems, communications, controls and energy conversion.

    Date:2012-02-23
    In this paper we present a novel implementation of high bandwidth constant modulation current circuit to the traditional small signal optical response technique used to determine the differential carrier lifetime of a ...
  • Carrier Recombination Dynamics Investigations of Strain-Compensated InGaAsN Quantum Wells 

    Author(s):Xu, Lifang; Patel, Dinesh; Menoni, Carmen S.; Pikal, Jon M.; Yeh, Jeng-Ya; Huang, J. Y. T.; Mawst, Luke J.; Tansu, Nelson; Xu, Lifang; Patel, Dinesh; Menoni, Carmen S.; Pikal, Jon M.; Yeh, Jeng-Ya; Huang, J. Y. T.; Mawst, Luke J.; Tansu, Nelson
    Date:2012-12-01
    The time evolution of the photoluminescence (PL) of 1300-nm emitting InGaAsN/GaAs/GaAsP strain-compensated single quantum well (QW) in the temperature range of T = 10 K – 300 K is investigated. The PL spectra observed at ...
  • Modified Command Feedforward Tracking Control System Applied to the PRRR-RR Parallel Mechanism, A 

    Author(s):Parkins, Jeffrey A.; O'Brien, John F.; Parkins, Jeffrey A.; O'Brien, John F.
    Date:2012-04-26
    The development of a prototype two degree-of-freedom parallel mechanism for application to unmanned ground vehicle target tracking is presented. The mechanism is extremely simple, decoupling the two end-effector degrees-of- ...
  • Two Degree-of-Freedom Parallel Mechanisms for High Bandwidth Vibration Suppression and Tracking 

    Author(s):Carruthers, Dustin J.; O'Brien, John F.; Carruthers, Dustin J.; O'Brien, John F.
    Date:2011-04-27
    Limited degree-of-freedom (DOF) parallel kinematic mechanisms (PKM) are capable of high bandwidth tracking and disturbance rejection with smaller actuators than are required for serial machines. A high performance ...
  • Multi-Agent Orbit Design For Perception Enhancement Purpose 

    Author(s):Nourzadeh, Hamidreza; McInroy, John E.; Nourzadeh, Hamidreza; McInroy, John E.
    Date:2013-12-27
    This paper develops a robust optimization based method to design orbits on which the sensory perception of the desired physical quantities are maximized. It also demonstrates how to incorporate various constraints imposed ...
  • Homography-Based Change Detection for Space-Based Satellite Inspection 

    Author(s):Buffington, Ryan L.; McInroy, John E.; Buffington, Ryan L.; McInroy, John E.
    Date:2011-05-19
    In order to maintain space situational awareness, it is necessary to maintain surveillance of objects in Earth orbit. A system of space-based imaging sensors could make much more detailed inspections of the existing resident ...
  • Change Detection for Visual Satellite Inspection Using Pose Estimation and Image Synthesis 

    Author(s):Buffington, Ryan L.; McInroy, John E.; Buffington, Ryan L.; McInroy, John E.
    Date:2011-05-20
    Satellites are subject to harsh lighting conditions which make visual inspection difficult. Automated systems which detect changes in the appearance of a satellite can generate false positives in the presence of intense ...
