Department / University Information


Dr. Stephen B. Bayne received his PhD, MS and BS degrees in Electrical Engineering from Texas Tech University. After completing his Doctorial studies, he joined the Naval Research Lab (NRL) where he was an electronics engineer designing advanced power electronics systems for space power applications. After two and a half years at NRL, Dr. Bayne transferred to the Army Research Lab (ARL) where he was instrumental in developing a high temperature power electronic program. Dr. Bayne was promoted to Team Lead at ARL where he led the power components team which consisted of five engineers. As the Team Leader, Dr. Bayne was responsible for advanced research in high temperature and advance power devices for Army applications. In addition, he developed internal research and also generated Small Business Initiative Research (SBIR) topics and worked as the Contracting Officer Representative (COR) on several contracts. After one and a half years as Team Lead, Dr. Bayne was promoted to Branch Chief of the Directed Energy Branch where he manages 16 Engineers, technicians and support staff. Dr. Bayne managed a muli-million dollar budget, and was responsible for recruiting, development, and performance evaluation of members in the branch. After 8 years at the ARL, Dr. Bayne transitioned over to academia where he is an Associate Professor at Texas Tech University. His research interests at Texas Tech are Power Electronics, Pulse Power and Renewable Energy. Dr. Bayne is involved in several wind energy projects to increase the performance of wind turbines integrated into the grid. Dr. Bayne won the Army Research Lab Achievement Award for Human Resources Development, the Army Research Lab Achievement Award for Engineering, and the Army Research and Development Award. He is also a senior member of IEEE, and was inducted into Marquis Who’s Who in America 2005. Dr. Bayne also has several publications in journals and conference proceedings, and co-authored a chapter in the book Advances in Silicon Carbide Processing and Applications. Dr. Bayne is also served as an Adjunct Professor at and Morgan State University, and taught a graduate Electrical Engineering course at Howard University. Dr. Bayne is also a veteran of the Military, where he served four years in the Air Force.
