I just returned from seeing amazing scientists get their due!  Tonight in San Jose, Intel’s Silicon Photonics research team and partner research team from the University of California at Santa Barbara received the Most Promising New Technology Award by EE Times.  This is a huge honor awarded by peers in the engineering community. 

Big kudos to Intel’s Mario Paniccia and the hard working research team, and the good natured, super intelligent team at UCSB.

 See all winners of the 2007 EE Times Ace Awards here.

Here is an audio Interview Mario did with PodTech when his team announced the Silicon Laser breakthrough in 2006.
