125 Years Of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at UCL

125 Years Logo The logo celebrates the heritage of the department, in addition to its ongoing vision for the future. The left hand side of the logo illustrates Fleming’s valve which can be seen as the birth of modern electronics. The upper left corner illustrates the new Molecular Beam Epitaxy facility within the department which aims to create new and improved devices using special materials built by controlling their structure atom by atom. The right hand side illustrates the UCL portico, with the final recognition of UCL’s heritage being the final pillar, which illustrates a corrugated waveguide, pioneered by Professors Barlow and Cullen, and used by UCL Alumni Prof. Charles Kao, in his seminal work on optical fibre communication for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2009.
