Integrated Circuits - Hardware Analysis Lab is completely dedicated to hardware based analysis in the following research fields, Hardware Oriented Security and Trust (Hardware Trojan Detection Strategies, Physical Unclonable Functions), Design For Manufacturability, Defect Based Test, and FPGA and Hardware/Software Codesign based acceleration
MIALAB, headed by Dr. Vince Calhoun, focuses on developing and optimizing methods and software for quantitative analysis of structure and function in medical images with particular focus on the study of psychiatric illness. We work with many types of data, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), electroencephalography (EEG), structural imaging and genetic data.
Much of our time is spent working on new methods for flexible analysis of brain imaging data. The use of data driven approaches is very useful for extracting potentially unpredictable patterns within these data. However such methods can be further improved by incorporating additional prior information as constraints, in order to benefit from what we know. To this end, we draw heavily from the areas of image processing, adaptive signal processing, estimation theory, neural networks, statistical signal processing, and pattern recognition.
The Pulsed Power, Beams and Microwaves Laboratory is a 4100 square foot facility located in Lower Level 2 of the ECE Building on the UNM main campus. This facility evolved from the Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Laboratory, founded in 1989 by Professor Edl Schamiloglu, to establish a program for research and education in plasma science, particularly pulsed power and intense beam-driven devices. The Pulsed Power, Beams and Microwaves Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility that supports the research activities of two faculty in applied electromagnetics, Professors Mark Gilmore and Edl Schamiloglu, and associated research faculty and graduate students.
