Jianqiang (Jerome) Lin, postdoctoral researcher working with Professor Supratik Guha, was recently awarded the Jin-Au Kong Award for the Best Doctoral Thesis in Electrical Engineering at MIT. He will also be receiving the IEEE Roger A. Haken Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) meeting in Washington DC next week (December 7th, 2015).
“We are excited about Jerome joining us at Argonne and the IME. Jerome has world class skills in the area of transport physics of nanoscale devices and device fabrication and—during his Ph.D. research at MIT—designed and built the world’s highest performing III-V compound semiconductor field effect transistor. He hopes to use these skills in a new project that we are beginning in the area of new materials, devices and systems for ultra-low power computing and sensing,” said Guha.
Jerome received his B. Eng (Hons) and M. Eng degrees in Electrical Engineering from the National University of Singapore, and his Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He carried out his doctoral thesis research under the supervision of Professors Jesús A. del Alamo and Dimitri A. Antoniadis at the Microsystems Technology Laboratories of MIT. His research interests are in semiconductor devices and device physics, new materials and new processes technologies, nanoelectronics and non-classical computer architectures.
