Congratulations to Professor Eric Pop, recognized as an Intel 2021 Outstanding Researcher.
The annual award program recognizes the exceptional contributions made through Intel university-sponsored research. Intel sponsors and works alongside academic researchers around the globe in areas such as field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), artificial intelligence (AI), and other innovative technologies.
Eric's team focused on improving Moore's Law scaling with two-dimensional (2D) materials by solving some of the important challenges in this field. The team made two discoveries that can influence future research in the field of 2D transistors. One is a predictive optical metrology which correlates with device performance. Another is a prototype of NMOS contact which is on par with silicon technology.
"We are pleased to recognize the important contributions of these carefully -selected researchers in our 2021 Outstanding Researcher Awards. We wish them each sincere congratulations," said Henning Braunisch, co-director of Intel's Corporate Research Council.
