Jerome received the news from the General Chair of IEDM, Dr. Howard Wang of TSMC. IEDM is the premiere conference in the field of electron devices where the latest developments from industry and universities are presented.

Jerome's paper at IEDM 2014 is titled "Novel Intrinsic and Extrinsic Engineering for High-Performance High-Density Self-Aligned InGaAs MOSFETs: Precise Channel Thickness Control and Sub-40 nm Metal Contacts." His co-authors are his PhD thesis co-advisors Profs. Dimitri Antoniadis and Jesús del Alamo. Jerome will receive the award at the 2015 IEDM next December.
