Nanotechnology Committee

The committee on Nanotechnology was founded in December of 2000 to chart future directions for the Electron Devices Society in the growing field of nanoelectronic devices and technology. Publications of the Electron Devices Society, particularly the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices and the Electron Device Letters, have long featured papers on nanoelectronics and nanotechnology. It is the purpose of this committee on Nanotechnology to consider new ways to encourage and highlight this emerging field in the Electron Devices Society and IEEE.

  • Nanotechnology Committee Chair

    • Navakanta Bhat
      Indian Institute of Science
      Brief bio:
      Navakanta Bhat received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, in 1996. Then he worked at Motorola’s Advanced Products R&D Lab in Austin, TX until 1999. He is currently a Professor at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. His current research is on Nanoelectronics and Sensors. He has more than 200 publications and 20 patents. He was instrumental in creating the National Nanofabrication Centre (NNfC) at IISc, benchmarked against the best university facilities in the world. He is the recipient of IBM Faculty award and Outstanding Research Investigator award (Govt. of India). He is a Fellow of INAE. He was the Editor of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, during 2013-2016. He is the member of the National Innovation Council in Nanoelectronics. He is the founder and promoter of a startup called “PathShodh Healthcare”, which builds point-of-care diagnostics for diabetes and its complications.

      Distinguished Lecturer Topics:
      1. Nanotransistors with 2D materials : Opportunities and Challenges

      2. Electrochemical Biosensors for managing Diabetes and its Complications

      3. Single Chip Metal Oxide Gas Sensor Array for Environment Monitoring

      4. Nanostructured High Performance Gas sensors

    • Sayeef Salahuddin
      Biography: Sayeef Salahuddin is an assistant professor in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley. His research interests are in the field of electronic transport in small structures currently focusing on novel electronic and spintronic devices for low power logic and memory applications. Salahuddin introduced the concept of using interacting systems for ultra low energy switches, leading to the idea of negative capacitance transistors. He received the Kintarul Haque Gold Medal from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology in 2003, a Microelectronics Advanced Research Corporation / Focus Center Research Program Inventor Recognition Award in 2007, a UC Regents Junior Faculty Fellowship in 2009, a Hellman Faculty Fellowship in 2010, the NSF CAREER award in 2011, the IEEE Nanotechnology Early Career Award in 2012, an Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Award in 2013, an Army Research Office Young Investigator Award in 2013 and best paper awards from the IEEE Transactions of VLSI Systems in 2013 and at the VLSI-TSA conference, 2013.
