Veeco & NAMBE Award Boston University Professor For MBE Innovation

Professor Moustakas was awarded for his pioneering contributions in the development of MBE growth of nitride materials and the development of nitride optoelectronic devices prepared by MBE.

 The 2010 ‘MBE Innovator Award’, co-sponsored by Veeco Instruments and the North America MBE organization, has been awarded to Professor Theodore Moustakas of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Boston University.

 Moustakas was presented with the award at this year’s NAMBE Conference that took place in Breckenridge, Colorado on September 28.

The North America MBE (NAMBE) organization selected Professor Moustakas for his pioneering contributions in the development of MBE growth of nitride materials and the development of nitride optoelectronic devices prepared by MBE. Particular contributions include the use of MBE for the synthesis and device fabrication of LEDs, laser diodes, photodetectors, and optical modulators operating in the visible and ultraviolet range. He is the co-editor of eight books, has authored 300 papers, and has been granted 25 U.S. Patents, with several more pending. Intellectual property transpiring from his work has been licensed to a number of companies, including major manufacturers of blue LEDs and lasers.

 “Veeco congratulates Prof. Moustakas on his great, long-standing success in the field of MBE and furthermore, we reiterate our sincere appreciation to all innovative contributors in MBE," said Jim Northup, GM/VP, Veeco St. Paul Operations. “We support this award as a key driver in the continuing expansion of MBE technology into eligible markets."

The MBE Innovator Award, initiated eight years ago, recognizes those individuals whose innovations have significantly advanced the field MBE in the following categories: 1) materials research, 2) device development, 3) device commercialization, or 4) equipment development. The award consists of a $3,000 honorarium and plaque.

Members of the NAMBE organization help advance MBE technology by sharing research discoveries on new materials and devices based upon MBE, as well as by supporting MBE as a high-volume manufacturing technology.
