Call for Nominations:  Faculty Distinguished Service Award

Nominations for the 2018 Faculty Distinguished Service Award will be accepted through Monday, March 26. The award recognizes faculty whose service to the university community has significantly improved the quality of some aspect of campus or community life.  The work could have resulted, in part, from compensated efforts, but it must distinguish itself from the normal execution of those tasks.  The award is open to all full-time faculty, including lecturers and research faculty.  Those who hold restricted appointments (e.g. adjunct, visiting, temporary or part-time faculty) are not eligible.  Faculty who hold positions with a significant administrative component (e.g. deans, associate deans, department chairs, etc.) are not eligible.  A cash prize of $2,500 accompanies the award.

Anyone—faculty, staff or students—can nominate a faculty member for this honor.  Please consider recognizing the efforts of a faculty member who you know is making Michigan Tech a better place for all of us.

Nomination forms are available online at http://www.admin.mtu.edu/usenate/Faculty%20Award.htm

Submissions may be made electronically (as PDF) or by mail to Charles Wallace, Department of Computer Science, wallace@mtu.edu.


NSF 18-046 Dear Colleague Letter: Enabling Quantum Leap: Achieving Room-Temperature Quantum Logic through Improved Low-Dimensional Materials

February 15, 2018

Dear Colleagues:

Future quantum information technologies will utilize devices that control, detect, and process information through mechanisms that rely on increasingly novel materials and operational paradigms. This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) addresses the need for fundamental research into eliminating obstacles to achieving low-dimensional materials suitable for room-temperature quantum information processing. For such materials to be practicable, current impediments in the form of decoherence, losses, and limited scalability must be overcome.

This DCL is intended to challenge the fundamental research community to achieve the materials solutions needed for demonstrating room-temperature quantum logic in low-dimensional materials, thus enabling a new platform for quantum information control and processing.

Recently, low-dimensional systems have emerged as a nascent class of materials that may offer the control and robustness required for room-temperature quantum logic. Moreover, low-dimensional materials exist at the nexus of several schemes that have been proposed for quantum information processing, using photons, polaritons, topological states, and pseudospins. The aim of this DCL is to challenge researchers to propose exploratory research enabling the successful experimental demonstration of room-temperature quantum logic in low-dimensional materials. Of primary interest to this DCL is quantum logic enabled by materials-mediated photon interactions. Materials and systems may include, but are not limited to: monolayers, interfaces and metasurfaces with large single-photon optical nonlinearities; room-temperature polaritonic condensates; 2D and quasi-2D materials with very large excitonic binding energies; topological polaritons and many-body localized systems.

Research projects are expected to be exploratory and therefore high-risk and high-payoff, addressing primarily the basic properties of novel materials, and, at a fundamental level, pathways towards applicability. Prospective PIs should address the fundamental materials challenges in the context of a proposed mechanism to achieve quantum logic operations, clearly articulating the main materials barriers to realizing quantum logic in the specified paradigm, as well as the plan for surmounting the identified obstacles. Metrics for evaluating success should be clearly delineated. Examples of desired outcomes of investigations into fundamental materials properties may include: greatly enhancing single-photon optical nonlinearities, decreasing decoherence, and increasing operational frequency, while demonstrating room-temperature control and manipulation of coherent states in quantum logic operations. While experiment/theory interactions are strongly encouraged, collaborative proposals should be limited to no more than 3 participants.

The Division of Materials Research (DMR) invites submission of high-risk and high-payoff proposals aiming at fundamental research to demonstrate room-temperature quantum logic using low-dimensional materials, and encourages PIs to submit EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals. Prior to submission of an EAGER proposal, a one-page whitepaper must be prepared and discussed with a cognizant Program Director. The proposal title must begin with “EAGER: Enabling Quantum Leap:” Proposals must be focused on fundamental materials research aspects within the scope of DMR and offer previously untested, exploratory concepts of room-temperature quantum logic in low-dimensional materials, with a high-risk / high-payoff characteristic. Award size and duration are limited to no more than $300,000 over a maximum of two years. EAGER proposals can be submitted throughout the year, with no specific submission window. Guidelines for preparing EAGER proposals can be found in Chapter II.E. 2 of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG).

This opportunity is managed by the Electronic and Photonic Materials (EPM) Program and EAGER proposals should be submitted to EPM. PIs may identify other programs within DMR for potential co-review. Specifically, the Condensed Matter and Materials Theory (CMMT) program would be appropriate if a strong theory component is envisioned, and the Condensed Matter Physics (CMP) program would be helpful for assessing the fundamental materials physics aspects of a proposal.

An investigator may be included in only one white paper and subsequent proposal submission pursuant to this DCL. DMR has no other specific priorities and restrictions.

Government Internships Available for Summer and Fall 2018

by Brent Burns, Director of Federal Relations

Have you ever wondered how our government works? Do you want to make a difference in public policy? Then you may be interested in a government internship.

Internships provide an individual with a monitored or supervised work or service experience where the individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what he or she is learning throughout the experience. These learning goals can include: academic learning, career development, skill development and personal development. Federal or State internship programs are available to students across a wide variety of disciplines while gaining experience in government, politics and international relations.

Applications are being accepted now for Senate and House Washington DC Offices. Federal agencies such as NASA, NSF, DOJ, DOE and others are also accepting applications.

In addition, there are multiple academic/internship programs available in DC and internships through the State of Michigan.

If interested, learn more online. Summer internship deadlines are quickly approaching.

ORAU Information: Member Only Opportunity

The ORAU University Partnerships Office is pleased to provide the information below regarding opportunities only available to ORAU sponsoring and associate members. Please forward only within your institution.

ORAU-Directed Research and Development Program:  Phase 2 Deadline March 26, 2018

The deadline for the ORAU-Directed Research and Development (ODRD) Program Phase 2 joint ORAU/university proposal submissions is March 26, 2018.  As a reminder, ODRD projects are joint collaborations consisting of innovative research-based approaches/solutions that fall within the intersection of ORAU’s core capabilities and our member universities research interests.

Universities may propose ODRD Concepts for potential collaboration with an ORAU subject matter expert (SME).  University ODRD concepts are vetted by each school’s ORAU Councilor and submitted on the Value Through Partnerships External SharePoint Site:    https://upo.orau.org/Partners/default.aspx.  Research concepts need to be submitted as early as possible to provide sufficient time to develop the joint proposals.

After matching interests, Phase 1 and Phase 2 applications are submitted by the ORAU SME, on behalf of the collaboration team.  Phase 1 participation is not a requirement for Phase 2.  Phase 1 travel grants are considered on an on-going basis.

For additional program information, please visit the ODRD Program page on the ORAU website:   http://www.orau.org/university-partnerships/members-only/odrd/default.aspx
