IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, has honored Prof. Gene Fitzgerald as a co-recipient of the Andrew S. Grove Award. This is the highest award presented by the electronic devices community. Prof. Fitzgerald is cited for his "seminal contributions to the demonstration of Si/Ge lattice mismatch strain engineering for enhanced carrier transport properties in MOSFET devices."
Please join in congratulating him for this well-deserved honor.
The MIT Energy Initiative's second round of seed grants for energy research, announced this week, will go toward a wide array of research topics ranging from micro-hydropower and solar-thermal power projects for developing countries, to the development of novel materials for insulation or for power generation, to computer software that can help to optimize energy use in cities or in a whole nation.
