The 2nd IEEE Student Research Symposium at UCR (ISRS-UCR) was held successfully on April 2nd, 2010, on campus. ISRS-UCR is an annual student-run student research forum aiming to promote research spirits among graduate and undergraduate students at UCR. ISRS-UCR provides an interactive forum for UCR students to share their experiences experience and results. As a tradition, the 2nd ISRS-UCR was held concurrently with the IEEE Electron Devices Society Mini-Colloquium on Microelectronics. The events were organized by the IEEE EDS UCR Student Chapter and co-sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Bourns College of Engineering. The Mini-Colloquium features three seminar talks given by invited IEEE Distinguished Lecturers, including Dr. Nate Peachey from RFMD for a talk entitled “ESD’s Middle Earth – Neither Device nor System Testing”, Dr. Steven Voldman from Intersil for a talk entitled “The Importance of ESD in the Electronic Industry” and Dr. Bin Zhao from Freescale Semiconductor for a presentation entitled “LED Backlighting Solutions for Energy Efficient Display”. The interactive forum consists of about 44 student papers, including 24 graduate student papers and 20 undergraduate student papers. The review panel, formed by the guest speakers, reviewed all papers very carefully and selected the Best Student Paper Awards, which were presented to the student winners at the end of the symposium. The Symposium attracted over 100 students coming to listen, discuss and share their research experiences.
