this Cornell group sure looks like a well maintained empire with lots of infra and structures to spend the money on. still hard to figure out the 'fundamental topics' from the PR... after all optical force or radiation pressure has been known to Maxwell back in 1871 and demonstrated by Lebedev in 1901. but who knows maybe when agk's computers will run 1000 times faster the P=NP? will be already solved :)

:) never mind that optical sources still need high-speed voltages and currents.

The future is optical. In 25 years time from now onwards all the electrcity based that is volts and current based circuits operation will be replaced by the ight based lumens and wavelength based circuits which will operate 1000 times faster than the now circuits. Dr.Michal Lipson is pioneering this technology. Sure the award and reward to her and the team are the boosters and as such the thirst for crossing the boundaries in technology is Great Great and this is a BIG service to the Humanity Congradulations Dr.MichalLipson

Feels good to hear women list in one of the big awards in technology. This is good for her research and students working under her and for the university too. She would have any way pursued her interests and this recognition makes it a little less daunting. No strings attached is good too in a way. Congrats!

It's really admirable that such young looking lady is so talented. Congratulations to her and I hope she has some fun with that non restricted money! Though I bet her fun is in what she does. Find a job you love and you'll never have to work.

From the MacArthur Foundation Website: The MacArthur Fellowships have been in existence since 1981 and so far has named 828 Fellows. There are three criteria for selection of MacArthur Fellows: exceptional creativity, promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishment, and potential for the fellowship to facilitate subsequent creative work. Although nominees are reviewed for their achievements, the fellowship is not a reward for past accomplishment, but rather an investment in a person's originality, insight, and potential. ************** The fellowships cover a wide range of disciplines. The complete list of 2010 fellows can be found at the following URL. http://www.macfound.org/site/c.lkLXJ8MQKrH/b.6239749/k.1427/Meet_the_2010_Fellows.htm In the Science area, you can see the entire list at http://www.macfound.org/site/c.lkLXJ8MQKrH/b.6225705/k.67C3/Browse_Fellows_by_Area.htm#a_sciences I am sure EETimes readers would recognize many of them. It would be an interesting study to see how these past Fellows have done vis a vis the 2nd and 3rd selection criteria. The MacArthur Foundation does not do any follow up, nor do they indicate in any way that they will or should. No strings attached is no strings attached. Congratulations to all 2010 Fellows!
