LEAST Faculty Honors - 2013
Joerg Appenzeller (Purdue)
Named APS Fellow for pioneering contributions to the physics, technology, and modeling of one and two-dimensional transistors and circuits.
Suman Datta (Penn State)
Named IEEE Fellow effective January 2013, for his contributions to high-performance advanced silicon and compound semiconductor transistor technologies.
Member of Intel team awarded SEMI Award in January 2013 for their contribution to the first development, integration and introduction of a successful high-k dielectric and metal electrode gate stack for CMOS integrated circuit production, first implemented at the 45-nm node in 2007.
Gerhard Klimeck (Purdue)
Named the Reilly Director of the Center for Predictive Materials and Devices (c-PRIMED) at Purdue University. C-PRIMED is focused on modeling for materials engineering. Klimeck is a professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of the Network for Computational Nanotechnology and its signature nanoHUB.org.
Joshua Robinson (Penn State)
Recipient of the 2013 E. Willard and Rudy S. Miller Faculty Fellow Award.
Recipient of the 2013 ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award.
Rodney Ruoff (UT Austin)
Named 2013 MRS Fellow for fundamental and pioneering studies of novel carbon nanostructures, including graphene, chemically modified graphenes, nanotubes, nanofoams, and fullerenes.
Sayeef Salahuddin (UC Berkeley)
Recipient of the 2013 Army Research Office Young Investigator Award.
With graduate student Asif Khan, recipient of the IEEE VLSI-TSA Best Paper Award.
Recipient of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society 2013 VLSI Transactions Best Paper Award.
Chris Van de Walle (UC Santa Barbara)
Awarded the 2013 American Vacuum Society (AVS) Medard W. Welch Award, the premier honor given by AVS. Van de Walle received the award at the AVS 60th International Symposium and Conference on October 30, 2013, in Long Beach, California. The award recognizes Prof. Van de Walle “for seminal contributions to the theory of heterojunctions and its applications to semiconductor technology, and for elucidating the role of hydrogen in electronic materials.”
