The ORS team of undergraduate researchers consisting of Jesse Jiang, Siddharth Kotapati, Kibeom Kim, and Volkan Gurses won the “Peer Review Award” at the ORS banquet on Monday, 15 April 2019. This award is decided by the 80+ ORS students who review one another’s end-of-year research project posters, evaluating them on the quality of the project and presentation. Bill Copich of Anaren (this year’s team sponsor) was on hand at the banquet to join the team on stage.
This group, led by Mohammad Alhassoun, presented their culminating research poster entitled “24 GHz RFID Tags”. No surprise that their presentation went well, as this group presented their work at both the IEEE RFID 2019 conference and the National Council on Undergraduate Research NCUR 2019 in the weeks leading up to the ORS banquet. Apparently, practice really does make perfect.

ECE PhD student Cheng Qi, along with co-authors Dr. Francesco Amato and Prof. Gregory D. Durgin, has won the Best Paper Award at the IEEE International Conference on RFID 2019. Held from April 2-4 in Phoenix, AZ, IEEE RFID 2019 is the world’s premier science and engineering conference for RF identification and related technologies.
Qi’s paper, entitled “Breaking the Range Limit of RFID Localization: Phase-based Positioning with Tunneling Tags”, presented a radically new way to do ultra-precise localization of a low-powered RFID tag. By using a Georgia Tech innovation — a quantum tunneling RFID tag — and a new algorithm to adjust for radio multiparty, Qi demonstrated centimeter-scale position location of a tag at tens of meters of range. The technique can work at hundreds-of-meters range and through walls as well.
It is uncomfortable to note that 3 of the last 4 best paper awards in the IEEE RFID conference series have been presented to GTPG papers.
