Gisele Bennett, a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the first leader for the George Tech Research Institute’s Electro-Optical Systems lab (EOSL).

Bennett is also director of GTRI’s Logistics and Maintenance Applied Research Center (LandMARC).

“EOSL has core research technologies that have high potential for growth,” said Bennett. “We are going to continue to be the research resource for our existing customers in areas such as optical sensing and systems design, and for our future customers in such areas as medical imaging and optical communication. We’ll continue to grow our work with the Department of Defense, and we’ll have new customers at the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and industry.”

Electro-optics includes electrical engineering, chemistry, nanotechnology and solid-state lighting.
