Woosol Lee Awarded 2022 IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship Award

Congratulations to IMG member Woosol Lee who has received  the 2022 IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Graduate Fellowship Award for the project titled “Highly efficient mmWave based far-field wireless power transfer system using metaconductors and metamaterials.” This is a very prestigious award given to only 12 students in the world each year in the IEEE MTT society.

Woosol Lee awarded 2022 IEEE AP-S Doctoral Research Fellowship Award

Congratulations to IMG Member Woosol Lee who has received the 2022 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society (AP-S) Doctoral Research Fellowship Award. This is a highly prestigious and competitive honor for Ph.D. students in IEEE AP-S, and the goal of this award is to encourage pursuit of careers in advanced electromagnetics. The award selection is based on creativity and quality of the proposed project as well as discussion of the technical interests and skills of the student. The title of his project, under the supervision of Dr. Y.K.

IMG Members' NEMS Research Featured as Cover of Applied Physics Letters 1st Issue in 2022

The cover of Applied Physics Letters' first issue of 2022 features the work of IMG members Dr. Jaesung Lee and Prof. Philip Feng and their collaborator. In the article, “Design of strongly nonlinear graphene nanoelectromechanical systems in quantum regime,” the authors show that atomically thin nonlinear nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) can offer sufficient anharmonicity for quantum NEMS to behave like artificial atoms, thus feasible to enable qubit devices with much smaller footprints than today’s qubit hardware.

IMG Journal Article Selected as Cover for Advanced Engineering Materials December Issue

The recent article titled, "Resolving Mechanical Properties and Morphology Evolution of Free-Standing Ferroelectric Hf0.5Zr0.5O2" targets the accurate extraction of Young's modulus, built-in stress, and crystal morphology change upon release of hafnia-zirconia thin films. Hafnia-zirconia is uniquely positioned to revolutionize nanoscale transducers, allowing for nanomechanical sensors and actuators to be monolithically integrated within CMOS.
