Ryu and Yoon Awarded Graduate Student Summer Research Fellowships

Two ECE Ph.D. students, Geunmin Ryu and Sung Jun Yoon, have been selected to receive Graduate Student Summer Research Fellowships for Summer 2010.

The Summer Research Fellowships are intended to provide support to "mid-career" doctoral students in the period approximately before, during, or after achievement of candidacy. The Summer Research Fellowships program, a companion program to the Flagship Fellowships and the Wylie Dissertation Fellowships that is now in its third year, enable doctoral students to devote a summer of focused work to prepare for or complete a benchmark in their program’s requirements. The Fellowship helps doctoral students take a significant step forward in their studies, reduce time-to-degree, and increase the quality of the graduate student experience. The Fellowships carry a stipend of $5,000.

Geunmin Ryu works in the Laboratory of Green Nanophotonics, Optoelectronics, and Nanosensing under the direction of Professor Mario Dagenais. He is currently conducting research in Mid-IR Interband Cascade Laser, GaN Solar cell and LED, Highly sensitive Fiber Bragg Grating Biosensors, and Incoherent Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry.

Sung Jun Yoon conducts research in the University of Maryland's Intense Laser Matter Interactions Group under the direction of Prof. Howard Milchberg. The research group's experiments involve elements of atomic physics, nonlinear optics, plasma physics, condensed matter physics and quantum electronics.
