Professor Sumit Roy receives Best Paper at 2017 WNS3 Workshop

The paper, entitled “Link-to-System Mapping for ns-3 Wi-Fi OFDM Error Models,” was awarded the top paper prize at the annual WNS3 Workshop. The paper investigates Wi-Fi OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) performance over AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise) and fading channels, developing an ns-3 ErrorRateModel based on tables compiled from link simulation results. This research…

Researchers construct computational circuit boards with DNA

Spatial organization as a tool for the spread of materials and information is a well-practiced concept. In Mesopotamia, it was used to coax water through a matrix of small channels to water crops. More recently, it has been used to operate semiconductor circuitry. In nature, spatial organization is used by living cells to control the…
