SRC TECHCON awards Purdue, UCSB research accolades

(September 14, 2010) — Professor Mark Lundstrom of Purdue University is the 2010 recipient of the Aristotle Award given by SRC and presented at its TECHCON technology conference. Professor Li-C Wang, University of CA at Santa Barbara, received the Technical Excellence Award.

The Aristotle Award recognizes the recipient’s accomplishments in preparing hundreds of students for research leadership in nanotechnology.



In a podcast interview with Debra Vogler, senior technical editor, Lundstrom discusses some of the research projects in which his students have participated over the years that have had an impact on furthering nanotechnology. Looking ahead, researchers are being asked to find out how small a MOSFET can be made — with channel lengths below 8nm. Alternative devices are sought by researchers to complement a CMOS platform.

The Technical Excellence Award was given to Professor Li-C Wang of the University of California at Santa Barbara, along with his former research assistants, Pouri Bastani and Benjamin Lee. This award recognizes key contributions to technologies that significantly enhance the productivity of the semiconductor industry.


Wang and his group conducted research in data mining and learning for test and validation, which led to the development of practical tools and methodologies used to solve several current problems faced by a number of SRC members. In a podcast interview, Dr. Wang describes a number of applications of the group’s findings, which represents a new data mining paradigm. Podcast: Download or Play Now
