Biography: Mansun Chan (S’92-M’95-SM’01-F’13) received Ph.D. degrees from the UC, Berkeley in 1995. He is one of the major contributors to the unified BSIM model for SPICE, which has been accepted by most US companies and the Compact Model Council (CMC) as the first industrial standard MOSFET model. In January 1996, he has joined the EEE faculty at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. After that, he developed a SOI MOSFET model, which has been adopted by UC Berkeley as the core of the BSIMSOI model. Between July 2001 and December 2002, he was a Visiting Professor at University of California at Berkeley and the Co-director of the BSIM program. In this capacity, he has successfully completed the technology transfer of BSIM3SOI to be the first industrial standard SOI MOSFET model. In addition to device modeling, Prof. Chan’s current research interests also include nano-transistor fabrication technology, carbon-based device physics, printable transistors, 3D integrated circuits, bio-sensors and cloud computing based simulation platform. He is current working on an interactive modeling and online simulation (i-MOS) platform to facilitate the interactions between model developers and circuit designers using the Internet technology.
Prof. Chan is a recipient of the UC Regents Fellowship, Golden Keys Scholarship for Academic Excellence, SRC Inventor Recognition Award, Rockwell Research Fellowship, R&D 100 award (for the BSIM3v3 project), Teaching Excellence Appreciation award, Distinguished Teaching Award and the Shenzhen City Technology Innovation Award by the Chinese Government. He is a Fellow and Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE.
Ahmad E Islam - Compound semiconductor Devices, Solid State Power and High Voltage Devices
Dr. Ahmad Ehteshamul Islam is a Senior Electronics Engineer at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) - Sensors Directorate (RY). He serves as a Research Team Lead at the Devices for Sensing Branch (RYDD) developing microwave devices and amplifiers using III-N materials and high frequency power converters using Ga2O3. He is interested in the performance improvement and reliability of microelectronic devices by utilizing materials innovation, defect engineering, microfabrication, and novel device design.
Dr. Islam obtained Bachelors in Electrical Engineering (EE) from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2004, and a Ph.D. in EE from Purdue University in 2010. His Ph.D. research was on the theory and characterization of Bias Temperature Instability; the resultant model is now widely adopted in the CMOS industry and has recently been included into a TCAD model developed by Synopsys. Dr. Islam has published journals and conference proceedings on dielectric integration, defect engineering, nanomaterials, flexible biosensors, and high-frequency, high-power and high temperature electronics. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a member of IEEE EDS Education Activities Committee.
