      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).

      Mario Lanza got his PhD in Electronic Engineering (with honors) in 2010 at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona. During the PhD he was visiting scholar at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (Germany, 2008) and University of Manchester (UK, 2009). During his PhD he analyzed high-k dielectric samples from Infineon Technologies and Numonyx. In 2010-2011 he did a postdoc at Peking University, and in 2012-2013 he was a Marie Curie fellow at Stanford University. On October 2013 he joined Soochow University as Associate Professor, and in 2017 he was promoted to Full Professor. Currently, Prof. Lanza leads a group formed by 17-20 graduate students and postdocs, and it focuses on the improvement of electronic devices using 2D materials. Prof. Lanza has published over 90 research papers (including Science, Nature Electronics, IEDM Tech Digest, and Advanced Materials) edited an entire book on Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy for Wiley-VCH, and registered four patents (one of them granted with 1 million USD investment). He is a member of the technical committee of several top conferences in the field of electronic devices (IEDM, IRPS, IPFA), and member of the advisory board of Advanced Electronic Materials, Nature Scientific Reports, Nanotechnology, Nano Futures and Crystal Research and Technology. Prof. Lanza has received some of the most important research awards at his stage, including the 2017 Young Investigator Award in the field of Microelectronic Engineering (Elsevier), the Young 1000 Talent (Ministry of Education of China), and the Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship (European Union). In 2019 he was selected as Distinguished Lecturer by the Electron Devices Society.
