Balandin Group Takes the Best Research Award at DARPA - SRC Review

NDL GroupThe research presentation by Suchismita Ghosh and her colleagues from Professor Alexander Balandin’s Nano-Device Laboratory (NDL) received one of five Best Research Presentation awards at the Defense Advance Research Project Agency (DARPA) – Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) project review workshop. The graduate student research competition, which took place on January 27 in LUXE hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, was judged by representatives from the government funding agencies and engineers from Intel, IBM, AMD and other electronic industry leaders. The NDL presentation entitled Heat Propagation in Graphene: Theory and Experiment was selected among 63 submissions from top US universities including Stanford, MIT, UCLA, USC, Caltech, UCSB, UCD, SUNY, NCSU and Columbia University. The graduate research competition was organized by the DARPA-SRC funded Functional Engineered Nano Architectonics (FENA) center. The mission of the national FENA center is development of the long-term strategy for US electronic industry. Professor Balandin is FENA co-PI who deals with the thermal management problems of the ultra-fast high-integration-density computer chips. Suchismita received the FENA certificate of accomplishment and a cash prize. Other members of the group who coauthored the research are Irene Calizo, Desalegne Teweldebrhan and Samia Subrina.
