2018 NTC Award Winners Announced

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council announces its 2018 Award Winners. Awards will be presented at its 13th Nanotechnology Materials & Devices Conference (NMDC 2018) which will be held in Portland, Oregon, the USA on 14-17 October 2018.

 

Early Career Award

Professor Can Bayram at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has been selected as the recipient for the 2018 IEEE Nanotechnology Council Early Career Award, with the citation:

“For seminal contributions to III-V quantum devices and their hetero-integration on silicon and graphene platforms through nanotechnology.”

Professor Bayram is a leader in the design, growth, and fabrication of III-V quantum devices. He has engineered novel quantum structures that have enabled the development of LEDs, lasers, photodetectors and solar cells covering the spectral range from deep ultraviolet to terahertz. This work includes the growth of cubic phase GaN on nanopatterned silicon, and the invention of GaN-on-Graphene technology that enables the production of low defect wafer-scale GaN-based devices on inexpensive and reusable substrates.

Pioneer Award

Professor Nader Engheta at the University of Pennsylvania has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 IEEE Nanotechnology Council Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology, with the citation:

“For his transformative contributions to the nanoscience and nanotechnology of photonic metamaterials and for the development of optical nanocircuits”

Professor Engheta is known for founding the field of optical nanocircuits (“optical metatronics”) and his pioneering development and contributions to this field, which has merged the fields of nanoelectronics and nanophotonics. He is also known for developing epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) materials with near zero electric permittivity. Through this work he has opened many new frontiers, including optical computation at the nanoscale and scattering control for cloaking and transparency. Professor Engheta’s work has far reaching implications in various branches of materials science, optics, microwaves, and quantum electrodynamics.

His current research activities span a broad range of areas including photonics, metamaterials, nano-optics, graphene optics, electrodynamics, imaging and sensing inspired by eyes of animal species, microwave and optical antennas, and physics and engineering of fields and waves. He has received several awards for his research including the 2017 William Streifer Scientific Achievement Award from the IEEE Photonics Society, the 2015 Gold Medal from SPIE, the 2015 Fellow of US National Academy of Inventors (NAI), the 2014 Balthasar van der Pol Gold Medal from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), the 2017 Beacon of Photonics Industry Award from the Photonics Media, the 2015 Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship Award from US Department of Defense, the 2012 IEEE Electromagnetics Award, the 2015 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Distinguished Achievement Award, the 2015 Wheatstone Lecture in King’s College London, the 2013 Inaugural SINA Award in Engineering, 2006 Scientific American Magazine 50 Leaders in Science and Technology, the Guggenheim Fellowship, and the IEEE Third Millennium Medal.

Happy Holi – 2018

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

Dear IEEE Nanotechnology Group,
Holi, the festival of colours, is here! Time to smear your dears and friends with gulaal, savour the festive sweet Gujiya and have thandai with friends and family, bidding goodbye to the winters.
While you celebrate the festival of Holi with your dear ones, do remember the ones who you are unable to meet on that day and send them Holi greetings and wishes.

IEEE NTC Council Wishing you a Happy New Year 2018

Evidence for the Majorana fermion in a quantum anomalous Hall insulator–superconductor

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

 

Majorana fermion: A particle that its own anti-particle has been recently evidenced by researchers led by Prof. Kang L. Wang, at University of California, Los Angeles. This discovery is believed to conclude the longstanding quest about the existence of Majorna fermions which could be a major breakthrough in the field of quantum computing. Prof. Kang L. Wang is the former Editor of IEEE-Transactions on Nanotechnology. Please join me in congratulating Prof. Kang L. Wang and his team on this occasion for an excellent discovery.
