2012 Technical Excellence Award Presented to Jesus del Alamo from MIT
[Note: The presentation of the 2012 Technical Excellence Award was made by Dr. Venu Menon, Texas Instruments, at TECHCON 2012.]
The Technical Excellence Award recognizes researchers who have made key contributions to technology that has significantly enhanced the productivity of the semiconductor industry.
This year, the $5000 award is presented to Dr. Jesus del Alamo, professor of Electrical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his SRC-funded work advancing silicon and compound semiconductor transistor technologies for RF, microwave and millimeter wave applications.
This nomination was submitted by William Tsai at Intel Corporation with support from Texas Instruments, Applied Materials, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, and SEMATECH.
Professor del Alamo’s research efforts in this field are truly monumental to help advance the prospect of III-V materials in the CMOS industry. It is a great pleasure, on behalf of the SRC Board of Directors, to present the 2012 Technical Excellence Award to Dr. Jesus del Alamo. Please join me in expressing your appreciation for his many years of excellence in research for the SRC community.
This year’s nomination came from Jason Baumgartner, an IBM Industrial Liaison to the research. To quote from the nomination “SRC projects under the direction of these individuals have been and continue to be exemplary in terms of broad industrial relevance, have yielded outstanding technology transfer and value to virtually every SRC member company, and have been nothing short of awe-inspiring in terms of innovation and following the highest caliber of scientific merit.”
