Samantha Lubaba Noor has received a 2020 Cadence Women in Technology Scholarship. A Ph.D. student in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Noor has worked in the Nanoelectronics Research Lab since fall 2018. She is advised by ECE Professor Azad Naeemi.
Noor works on the design, analysis, and optimization of plasmonic logic devices and circuit components that can potentially complement the conventional CMOS technology. Surface plasmon is an electromagnetic wave that propagates at a metal/dielectric interface. It confines and guides light at subwavelength scales, which is way beyond the diffraction limit of light. Using surface plasmon to design logic devices and circuits can ultimately offer high-speed and high throughput computation with a low footprint requirement.
Noor’s research project aims to design an integrated and optimized plasmonic network considering the associated design trade-offs among various performance parameters of the components connected. The designed plasmonic logic devices and circuit components, as well as the integrated plasmonic network, will find uses in signal and data-processing applications in high-end server systems. For her project, Noor is collaborating with researchers and scientists from KU Leuven, IMEC, and EPFL.
Prior to coming to Georgia Tech, Noor completed her Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology in 2012. She also earned her Master of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology in 2016.
