LCN PhD Student, Sungsik Lee has been selected as the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) 2011 PhD student fellowship recipient. Judging was based on the academic excellence and the demonstration of significant ability to perform independent research in the field of Electron Devices.
Three fellowships are awarded each year with the intention of one fellowship being given to the most excellent student in each of the following geographical regions: 1. Americas, 2. Europe/Middle East/Africa, and 3. Asia & Pacific. He has been selected as the recipient for the second geographical region, Europe/Middle East/Africa, representing London Centre for Nanotechnology, University College London, UK. The award plaque will be presented by IEEE EDS president, Renuka Jindal, during plenary session on 4th December 2011 at the Hilton Washington and towers, USA, in conjunction with IEEE IEDM.
Sungsik Lee is also a recipient of both ORS and GRS Scholarships for the entire PhD program in University College London. His research is focused on the physics underlying the unique conduction mechanism in amorphous oxide semiconductor thin film transistors (TFTs) as well as particularly investigates density of trap states using a field effect method based on numerical analysis. He has more than 25 scientific contributions, including 5 journal papers and 3 US patents as the first author and inventor. He is a reviewer of high impact journals, such as IEEE EDL, IEEE TED, IEEE/OSA JDT, and a member of IEEE EDS and MRS.
