MBE Award For CCNY's Maria Tamargo


International award recognises individuals whose innovative work has significantly advanced the field of molecular beam epitaxy

New York chemistry professor Maria Tamargo has won the 2017 MBE Innovator Award for her work in "advancing the growth of wide bandgap II-VI semiconductors by molecular beam epitaxy and demonstrating their unique physical properties and potential novel device applications.'

The North American MBE Advisory Board will present the award at the North American MBE Conference (NAMBE) in Galveston, Texas, in October. Tamargo will receive a $3,000 prize, a plaque and the opportunity to give an invited talk at the NAMBE Conference.

Established in 2004, this international award recognises individuals whose innovative work has significantly advanced the field of molecular beam epitaxy. Recipients are highly distinguished scientists whose inventive work must have had/or continue to have a significant impact on the advancement of MBE technology.

In addition to her faculty position in City College's Division of Science, Tamargo is director of the National Science Foundation's CREST Center for Interface Design and Engineered Assembly of Low-dimensional Systems, known by the acronym IDEALS.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
