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.

IMG Member Receiving the Outstanding Paper Award at Transducers 2021 Conference

IMG PhD student, Troy Tharpe, received the Outstanding Paper Award at the 21st International Conference on Solid-State Sensors, Actuator and Microsystems (Transducers 2021).

The paper that received the award is titled "IN-PLANE BULK ACOUSTIC RESONATORS USING 50NM-THICK NANO-LAMINATED FERROELECTRIC HF0.5ZR0.5O2."

Congratulations to Troy Tharpe, and the co-author Faysal Hakim, on receiving this prestigeous award, and representing IMG well.
