Photos of the research space
NYU WIRELESS has opened 13,500 square feet of research space, which combines research in wireless technologies, computing and medical applications. The space was designed to create a collaborative environment where state-of-the-art wireless research can be conducted amongst faculty and student researchers. Located on the 9th floor of the NYU-Poly 2 MetroTech building, Brooklyn campus visitors are greeted by an amazing view of the Chrysler building and the Manhattan bridge. The facility is equipped with special visitor seating for collaborators and corporate sponsors.
The NYU WIRELESS research space is a modern facility containing three classrooms, two conference rooms, common areas-- lounges, pantry, and 24/7 building access. The facility also contains four fully equipped laboratories for researching the next generation of wireless technology.
Equipped with over 75 student workstations, the space provides a dedicated workplace for NYU WIRELESS student researchers and faculty to work. Students can easily collaborate on research projects using lounge areas and the student conference room, equipped with whiteboard walls and a modern projector.
The NYU WIRELESS laboratories contain a wide range of instruments including FPGA development platforms, channel sounders, signal generators, vector network analyzers, spectrum analyzers, and semiconductor probe stations. The lab is fully equipped to perform communications, networking, and signal processing research for fifth generation (5G) wireless. NYU WIRELESS faculty and students conduct extensive research on systems, architectures, and applications covering the physical layer, media access control layer, and networking layers for broadband wireless and wired communications. Other center reasearch areas include circuit design and medical instrumentation development for MRI imaging, anesthesiology, and cardiology research.
The research space was designed by Professor Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, a faculty member of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at NYU-Poly, the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and the Department of Radiology at NYU Langone Medical Center, and is the founder of NYU WIRELESS. He previously founded academic wireless centers at Virginia Tech and The University of Texas at Austin as well as two cellular technology companies.
