Alumnus Dr. Sanjay Banerjee, has been named as the recipient of the 2017 University Research Award, conferred by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), in consultation with the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC).
Dr. Sanjay Banerjee is the Cockrell Family Regents Chair Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Director of the Microelectronics Research Center in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He is currently active in the areas of ultra high vacuum and remote plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition for silicon-germanium-carbon heterostructure MOSFETs and nanostructures. He is also interested in the areas of ultra-shallow junction technology and semiconductor device modelling.
Dr. Banerjee will receive the award for excellence in technology research. Specifically, he will be honoured for contributions in MOS and nanostructure device modelling, Si-Ge-C heterostructure devic
