2014 Awards Presentation

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Toronto, Canada (21 August 2014) – The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) presented its 2014 awards at the 2014 International Nanotechnology Conference (NANO 2014) gala dinner held August 20 at the Eaton Chelsea Hotel.

The 2014 NTC Pioneer Award winner is Professor Stephen Y. Chou, the Joseph C. Elgin Professor of Engineering at Princeton University. The 2014 NTC Early Career Award winner is Mona Jarrahi, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA.

NTC Past-President Stephen Goodnick presented the Awards.

Professor Chou won the Pioneer Award “For seminal inventions, developments, and academic-industrial-impacts of new nanopatterning methods, especially nanoimprint; and new paradigm-shift electronic, optical, magnetic, biological nanodevices.”

Professor Chou is a prominent educator and researcher in nanotechnology and is widely recognized for developing a broad range of new nanofabrication methods. Key among this is his invention of nanoimprint lithography (NIL) in 1995, which has become a large industry and a key corner-stone in today’s nanomanufacturing in many industries. His other inventions include patterned medium (a new paradigm for data storage), new nanotransistors/memories, new subwavelength optical elements, ultra-sensitive nanobiosensors and nanoplasmonic LEDs and solar cells.. Professor Chou has received many awards for his work, and in 2007 he was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering.

Jarrahi won the Early Career Award “For contributions to the development of nano-plasmonic and nano-photonic devices and quantum well structures for advancement of terahertz technology.”

Professor Jarrahi has pioneered the use of plasmonic nanostructures inside of photoconductive terahertz devices, which has led to orders of magnitude enhancement in responsivity for applications including chemical sensing, security screening and medical imaging and diagnostics. Professor Jarrahi has received many Young Investigator awards, including the 2013 Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Award from the National Academy of Engineering.
