Joe X Qiu


Adjunct Full Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Joe Qiu received his B.S. (with honor) and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1991 and 1997, respectively.  From 1992 to 1997, he was a Research Assistant with Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY.  From 1997 to 2008, he was with the Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC, initially as a National Research Council Post-Doctoral Associate and then as a Research Physicist, conducting research in nonlinear optics and high-power microwave/millimeter-wave amplifiers.  He was with the Electronics Technology Branch, Army Research Laboratory, Adelphi, MD, from 2008 to 2015.  From October 2013 to August 2015, he was on assignment to the Army Research Office, Research Triangle Park, NC, as a Program Manager at ARO’s Electronics Division. Since August 2015, he has been a program manager at ARO’s Electronics Division, currently managing its Solid-State Electronics Program.  His research interests are high-power microwave/millimeter-wave amplifiers, power amplifier characterization and linearization, high-speed digital RF waveform synthesis, millimeter-wave/terahertz communications, low phase-noise oscillators, machine learning and future computing architectures.  Dr. Qiu is a member of two Technical Committees of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society: MTT-5 (High-Power Microwave Techniques) and MTT-26 (Wireless Power Transmission).  He served as Chair of MTT-5 from 2012-2015.  He received the NRL Alan Berman Research Publication Award in 2000 and was the recipient of the First IEEE Microwave Magazine Best Paper Award in 2010.
