TÜBA 2017 Academy Prizes Awarded: TÜBA-GEBİP Young Scientist Award to Our Faculty Member

ECE Deparment Faculty Member Assoc.Prof. Ertuğrul Başar,

TÜBA-GEBİP The Young Scientists Award Programme (GEBIP) - Atrium into Academy Membership:
" An Investment into the Future of the Academy
Launched in 2001, this award programme is one of the first of its kind in the world. The objective of TÜBA-GEBIP is to foster young, outstanding scientists who are at the stage of establishing their own research programmes in Turkey after finishing their post-doctoral research activities. TÜBA supports these scientists for a period of three years and helps them set up their own research groups at a stage when they are in need for incentives. In this way TÜBA tries to contribute to develope a new generation of competent researchers from all disciplines, including social sciences and humanities, basic sciences and health sciences. The Turkish Academy of Sciences considers itself as a school to train young promising academicians.
The GEBIP programme aims to set up a kind of Young Academy of scientists under the age of 40. Aside from a grant provided for a period of three years, a member of the Academy is assigned as the mentor, and an environment of solidarity and interaction is created through joint meetings held with Academy members."

Assoc.Prof. Ertuğrul Başar is affiliated to ECE Deparment Wireless Communication Research Laboratory Group .
His research interests include: "Wireless Communications, 4G/5G Wireless Networks, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Systems, Space-Time Coding, Cooperative Communications, Coded Modulation Techniques, Signal Processing for Wireless Communications, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), Visible Light Communications (VLC)".

About the ELD Lab

Electro-optical Devices Laboratory (ELD) is dedicated to photonics research for biomedical applications. TÜBİTAK and BAP grants have been awarded to lab members, to conduct research on Confocal Microendoscopy and Optical Coherence Tomography. Besides optical imaging modalities, the laboratory also focuses on MEMS reliability research, where performance degradation of the microdevices that are used within laser scanning microscopy are mathematically modeled for lifetime prediction.
Assistant Professors Onur Ferhanoğlu, M. Berke Yelten and Fehmi Çivitci are the main responsible researchers of the EDL.
