EECS' Philip Feng receives NSF Career Award

Philip Feng, assistant professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has won a $500,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Award for his five-year project, “Dynamically Tuning 2D Semiconducting Crystals and Heterostructures for Atomically-Thin Signal Processing Devices and Systems.”
Called a CAREER award, it’s the NSF’s most prestigious grant to junior faculty members. Winners are chosen because they exemplify the role of researcher-teacher-scholar through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of the two.

Researchers discern the shapes of high-order Brownian motions

EECS researchers discern the shapes of high-order Brownian motions

For the first time, scientists have vividly mapped the shapes and textures of high-order modes of Brownian motions—in this case, the collective macroscopic movement of molecules in microdisk resonators—researchers at Case Western Reserve University report. In his lab Philip Feng worked closely with research associate Max Zenghui Wang and Ph.D. student Jaesung Lee on the study. They used a record-setting scanning optical interferometry technique, described in a study published today in the journal Nature Communications.

Prof. Philip Feng, assistant professor in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, together with Dr. Tse Nga (Tina) Ng from Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), have received one of the two Grainger Foundation Frontiers of Engineering Grants for advancing interdisciplinary research, awarded by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). 

Prof. Feng was one of the 81 of the nation’s brightest young engineers selected to participate in the National Academy of Engineering’s 2013 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (FOE) Symposium, held last September, where he met Dr. Ng.  In the project entitled “Integrating Atomically Thin Semiconducting Crystals with Flexible Electronics”, Prof. Feng will combine his expertise in two-dimensional (2D) semiconducting crystals with Dr. Ng’s research experience in flexible electronics, to explore fundamentals and innovative technologies for engineering 2D devices and emerging applications.
