2021 Nanotechnology Awards Ceremony

Monday, August 9th, 2021

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council announces its 2021 Award Winners. Individual Awards were presented at its 21st IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (NANO 2021) held virtually on 28-30 July 2021.

PIONEER AWARD IN NANOTECHNOLOGY

The NTC Pioneer Award in nanotechnology is to recognize individuals who by virtue of initiating new areas of research, development or engineering have had a significant impact on the field of nanotechnology. The award is intended for people who are in the mid or late portions of their careers, i.e., at least 10 years beyond his or her highest earned academic degree on the nomination deadline date.

2021 Pioneer Award Recipient

Prof. Jean-Pierre Leburton, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

“For pioneering contribution to the theory and simulation of semiconductor nanostructures and low dimensional nanoscale devices.”

Jean-Pierre Leburton received his Ph.D. from the University of Liege (Belgium) in 1978. He is a professor in the UIUC Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a research professor in the Holonyak Micro- and Nano-Technology Laboratory and in the Coordinated Science Laboratory. He is also Professor of Physics at UIUC.

Professor Leburton’s expertise is the theory and simulation of nanoscale semiconductor devices and low-dimensional systems. His research focuses more specifically on transport and optical processes in semiconductor nanostructures such as quantum wells, quantum wires and quantum dots. Current research projects involve electronic properties of self-assembled dots for high performance lasers, single-electron charging and spin effects in quantum dots, modeling of nanocrystal floating gate flash memory devices, nanoscale Si MOSFET’s and carbon nanotubes and graphene nanostructures. His research deals also with dissipative mechanisms involving electron-phonon interaction in nanostructures for mid- and far-infrared intra-band lasers. Approaches to these problems involve use of sophisticated numerical techniques such as Monte-Carlo simulation and advanced 3D self-consistent Schroedinger-Poisson model including non-equilibrium transport for full scale nanodevice modeling.In the last 18 years, he turned his interest toward the interaction between living systems and semiconductors to investigate programming and sensing biomolecules with nanoelectronics.
