Wong receives IEEE Electron Devices Society J.J. Ebers Award

Mon, 10/07/2019

Professor H.S. Philip Wong has been awarded the IEEE Electron Devices Society J.J. Ebers Award. This is the society's highest honor recognizing outstanding technical contributions to the field of electron devices that have made a lasting impact.

The award will be presented to Philip at the 2019 International Electron Devices Meeting in December. The Jewell James Ebers Award was established in 1971 with the intention to foster progress in electron devices and to commemorate the life activities of Jewell James Ebers, whose distinguished contributions, particularly in the transistor art, shaped the understanding and technology of electron devices.

Philip is the Willard R. and Inez Kerr Bell Professor in the School of Engineering. He is professor of Electrical Engineering and affiliate faculty of Bio-X, Precourt Institute for Energy, and Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute. Philip's present research covers a broad range of topics including carbon electronics, 2D layered materials, wireless implantable biosensors, directed self-assembly, nanoelectromechanical relays, device modeling, brain-inspired computing, and non-volatile memory devices such as phase change memory and metal oxide resistance change memory.

Please join us in congratulating Philip on this well-deserved honor!
