Congratulations to IMG undergraduate student Alexander Reilly on winning 1st place in the undergraduate category at the AIAA Region II Student Conference hosted on April 4-5, 2022 at the Georgia Institute of Technology! Alexander gave a presentation titled, "Development and Fabrication of an Ultrasonic MEMS Anemometer for Use in Low-Pressure Environments". Great job Alexander!
Aftab Bhanvadia will defend his dissertation titled: "Development of additive microfabrication processes using stereolithography for functional devices".
Dicheng Mo, IMG PhD student and a member of Tabrizian group, is selected as a finalist for the 'Student Best Paper' competition at the 2022 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium (IFCS), to be held in Paris this month. Dicheng, along with his co-authors Shaurya Dabas and Sushant Rassay, is demonstrating the first intrinsically configurable bulk acoustic wave resonator and filter with dual-frequency operation at 7 and 14 GHz. Congratulations to Dicheng and the co-authors, and best wishes for the competition.
IMG will be represented this month at the IEEE IFCS 2022.

IMG member Shayla Breedlove, a PhD student in the Multidisciplinary Nano and Microsystems (MNM) Lab, becomes one of 15 members of the inaugural class of OpticaWorldwide Amplify Scholars, which supports Black students and their passion for light science.
Shayla is supervised by Dr. Zmuda and Dr. Yoon. Congrats!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sushant Rassay will defend his PhD proposal titled "SCANDIUM-ALUMINUM-NITRIDE NANO-ELECTRO-MECHANICAL TRANSDUCERS FOR INTEGRATED FERROELECTRIC DEVICES" on Tuesday, December 13th at 11:00 AM over Zoom.
