      Dr. Deji Akinwande received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2009, where he conducted research on the synthesis, device physics, and circuit applications of carbon nanotubes and graphene. His Master’s research in Applied Physics at Case Western Reserve University pioneered the design and development of near-field microwave probe tips for nondestructive imaging and studies of materials.

      He is an Endowed Faculty Fellow and Associate Professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Prof. Akinwande has been honored with the 2016 Presidential PECASE award, the inaugural Gordon Moore Inventor Fellow award, the inaugural IEEE Nano Geim and Novoselov Graphene Prize, the IEEE "Early Career Award" in Nanotechnology, the NSF CAREER award, several DoD Young Investigator awards, the 3M Nontenured Faculty Award, and was a past recipient of fellowships from the Kilby/TI, Ford Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and Stanford DARE Initiative. His recent results on silicene have been featured by nature news, Time magazine and was selected among the top 2015 science stories by Discover magazine. His work on flexible 2D electronics was highlighted among the "best of 2012" by the nanotechweb news portal and has been featured on MIT's technology review and other technical media outlets. He is a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Electron Device Society and an Editor for the IEEE Electron Device Letters and Nature NPJ 2D Materials and Applications. He co-authored a textbook on carbon nanotubes and graphene device physics by Cambridge University Press, 2011, and was recently a finalist for the Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award, the highest teaching award from the University of Texas System.

      Lecture Topics: New Material Based Micro/Nano Devices Flexible Electronics Novel Acoustic and RF Devices Non-volatile Memory

      Biography: Tian-Ling Ren received his Ph.D. degree in solid-state physics from Department of Modern Applied Physics, Tsinghua University, China in 1997.

      He is full professor of Institute of Microelectronics, Tsinghua University since 2003. He has been a visiting professor at Electrical Engineering Department, Stanford University from 2011 to 2012.

      For these years, Prof. Ren’s research mainly focused on novel micro/nano electronic devices and key technologies, including nonvolatile memories (RRAM, FeRAM), RF devices (resonator, inductor), sensors, and MEMS. Prof. Ren’s main contributions are that he has developed the new integration methods for novel material based micro/nano device and circuit applications. For examples, he proposed the RRAM structure with integration of single layer graphene, which can drastically decrease the power consumption of the device; he developed the ferroelectric thin film based integrated acoustic devices; he also proposed the graphene sound source devices for the first time; and he realized the high quality ultra-flexible structured RF resonators with very promising applications. He has published more than 300 journal and conference papers. He has more than 40 patents.

      He has been an Elected Member at Large, and Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Electron Devices Society. He is also Council Member of Chinese Society of Micro/Nano Technology. For these years, Prof. Ren has been the technical committee member for several leading international conferences, including International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM), and Device Research Meeting (DRC). He is also editorial board member of Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group).
