Professor(s) Patrick Fay & Debdeep Jena
Patrick Fay is a Professor in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, where he has been on the faculty since 1997. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1996. His research interests include the design, fabrication, and characterization of compound semiconductor-based microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz electronic devices and circuits. His research includes experimental study of high-speed devices and circuits based on high electron mobility transistors, heterojunction bipolar transistors, resonant tunnel diodes, and heterostructure backward tunnel diodes in the arsenide, phosphide, antimonide, and nitride III-V material systems. His interests also include high-speed compound semiconductor p-i-n and metal-semiconductor-metal photodetectors and monolithically integrated optoelectronic circuits for fiber optic telecommunications applications. The development and use of micromachining techniques for the fabrication of microwave through sub-millimeter-wave components, packaging, and interconnects is another of Prof. Fay’s research interests. He holds 7 issued patents in the areas of his research, and has authored or co-authored over 250 journal papers and conference proceedings. Prof. Fay is a fellow of the IEEE and serves as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer in the Electron Devices Society.
Debdeep Jena is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at Cornell University. His research and teaching interests are in the MBE growth and electronic and photonic device applications of quantum semiconductor heterostructures (III-V nitrides, oxides, and 2D crystal semiconductors). By combining experiment and theory, his group explores fundamental speed, power, and efficiency limits of electronic and photonic devices based on a deep investigation of charge, heat, and spin transport. He has authored more than 190 scientific publications including articles in Science, Nature Journals, Physical Review Letters, Electron Device Letters, and Applied Physics Letters. During his research career, he has received the International MBE Young Scientist award in 2014, the IBM faculty award in 2012, the ISCS Young Scientist award in 2012, the most valuable contribution awards at the Workshop for Compound Semiconductor Materials and Devices (WOCSEMMAD) in 2014, 2010 and 2008, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Career Award in 2006, a best student paper award at the Electronic Materials Conference in 2002, and a young author best paper award from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) in 2000. He is most proud of the Joyce award for excellence in undergraduate teaching which he received in 2010.
