As electronics advance, so do radiation effects and reliability research

Dec. 2, 2011—, professor of electrical engineering and computer engineering, knows radiation from as far away as deep space and as close as our sun poses significant dangers to both space-based and earthbound computers that control missile-guidance systems, supercomputers and telecommunications systems, and even cell phones and iPods. The cost of service interruptions to such systems can...
