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.

Patrick Fay - Fellow
Patrick Fay received a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 1991, followed by the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1993 and 1996, respectively. He joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame in 1997, where he currently a professor as well as the director of the Notre Dame Nanofabrication Facility. His research interests include the design, fabrication, and characterization of III-V microwave and millimeter-wave electronic devices and circuits, power devices, and high-speed optoelectronic devices and optoelectronic integrated circuits. His research also includes the development and use of micromachining techniques for the fabrication of microwave and millimeter-wave components and packaging. Prof. Fay was awarded the Department of Electrical Engineering’s Outstanding Teacher award in 1998 and 2018, and Notre Dame's College of Engineering’s Outstanding Teacher award in 2015. He is a fellow of the IEEE, and Electron Device Society Distinguished Lecturer, and serves as an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology, IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, and IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.
