Celebrating Centennial’s Seminal Moment

It was a ground-breaking vision, to be honest: a gift of land for a land-grant institution to build a unique research campus within sight of downtown Raleigh and NC State’s original campus. And it changed the size, scope and direction of the university forever.

From Theory to Practice: ECE Senior Design

As the end of the semester approaches, students in NC State’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering capstone engineering course are feeling the heat. Students spend two semesters working on projects that aim for them to create, design and develop a real world solution to a proven problem. The students work in teams, sponsored by industry partners, starting with a problem statement, analyzing product requirements, evaluating solutions and defining a solution.

When some students at North Carolina State University decided to enter the American Solar Challenge — a biennial race for solar powered cars — they knew they would be up against some fierce competition from students at other colleges and universities. Typically, the cars that enter are little more than go-karts with a few solar panels held in place with cable ties. But Byron Sells, who began the solar car challenge at NCSU, wanted more than a car that would limp across the finish line as the wheels fell off. “I told the team, ‘Let’s make something compelling that the consumer actually wants to buy,’” he says.

“Until now, state-of-the-art diffraction gratings configured to steer visible light to large angles have had an angular acceptance range, or bandwidth, of about 20 degrees, meaning that the light source has to be directed into the grating within an arc of 20 degrees,” says Michael Escuti, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at NC State and corresponding author of a paper on the work. “We’ve developed a new grating that expands that window to 40 degrees, allowing light to enter the grating from a wider range of input angles.
