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.
Haoran Wang will defend his dissertation entitled "Development of piezoelectric micromachined ultrasonic transducers (pMUTs) for endoscopic photoacoustic imaging applications" at 12:00 pm on March 23rd.

Congratulations to the students and researchers from IMG who were accepted to present at the 33rd IEEE MEMS 2020 Conference in Vancouver, Canada! IEEE MEMS is one of the largest conferences for MEMS experts to converge at. Overall, 11 papers from IMG were accepted out of 800+ abstracts submitted worldwide, as seen below:
Dr. David Arnold’s Group:
New IMG Professor Philip Feng presented in the ECE Seminar Series this week with a talk about his research titled, “Emerging Semiconductor Nanoscale Devices and Systems: From Fundamentals to Applications”. It was great to see him share his field of work with all the students in the UF ECE Department!
The speaker for this week's seminar is the new IMG faulty memmber, Dr. Philip Feng, whose talk is on
Multimode Resonant MEMS in Liquid: from Microscale Chladni Patterns to Cancer Cell Cluster Analysis
IMG warmly welcomes its newest faculty member—Dr. Philip Feng! Dr. Feng and his research group focus primarily on emerging semiconductor devices and integrated systems, and he has received numerous awards including the prestigious NSF CAREER Award. We believe he will be a great addition to our community!
