Perreault announced today the promotions of three EECS professors including MTL core faculty member Michael Watts to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure effective July 1, 2015.

Michael Watts is a leader in the area of integrated photonics, and is especially known for his work on silicon photonics, a growing technology with major implications for communications, high-performance computing, optical sensing and displays, among other areas. Mike's research encompasses microphotonic elements, silicon photonics process development, and large-scale integrated photonic systems and applications. He is widely known and highly regarded for his contributions to each of these areas, and especially for developing approaches that not only achieve benchmark results but also do so in manners that address practical requirements for future large-scale commercialization. His teaching has focused on photonics and electromagnetics as well as on the Lincoln Laboratory-led "coffee-can" summer radar courses.
