As 2022 comes to an end, EE Times is highlighting memorable stories from each of its editors over the past year. Today’s spotlight is on Maurizio Di Paolo Emilio, editor-in-chief of Power Electronics News and EEWeb, as well as a correspondent for EE Times.
Maurizio holds a Ph. D. in Physics and is a telecommunications engineer. He has worked on various international projects in the field of gravitational waves research, designing a thermal compensation system (TCS) and data acquisition and control systems, as well as X-ray microbeams in collaboration with Columbia University, INFN and ESA. TCS has been applied to the Virgo and LIGO experiments, which detected gravitational waves for the first time and earned the Nobel Prize in 2017.
Since 2007, he has been a reviewer for scientific publications for academics, such as Microelectronics Journal and IEEE journals. From 2015 to 2018, he was the editor-in-chief of Firmware and Elettronica Open Source. Maurizio first joined AspenCore in 2019.
Here are Maurizio’s top six stories from 2022:
TU Darmstadt is supporting the U.S./German company Focused Energy, which is exploring laser-guided inertial fusion energy, a different method to magnetic confinement.
Thermal energy harvesting can provide an autonomous and renewable energy source for a wide range of sensors and electronic devices, enabling them to produce energy from temperature differences.
Quantum computing promises to dramatically impact numerous fields, from cybersecurity to finance, from supply chain to pharmaceuticals, and from defense to weather forecasting.
What is so special about SiC and GaN, and why are they being looked at as alternatives to silicon?
Consider how many man-made disasters we’ve had to cope with in the last 50 years—Chernobyl is one of them. Now we’re dealing with a potentially more serious issue: climate change.
Alex Lidow analyzes the cost of energy and its key points: energy generation, distribution, storage, conversion and usage costs.
