ECE Students Win Best Paper Award in MEMS and NEMS Competition

ECE graduate students Alireza Modafe and Nima Ghalichechian, and Associate Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR), are the recipients of the 2004 MEMS and NEMS (MN) Technical Group Best Graduate Student Paper Award. The MN Technical Group has awarded $500 to the students for their presentation titled "BCB-Based Linear Micromotor Supported on Microball Bearings: Design Concepts, Characterization, and Fabrication Development.”

Candidates were judged based on the originality of their research and the quality of their presentation. The MN Technical Committee found the ECE students’ presentation to be the best among all MN student papers submitted at the American Vacuum Society (AVS) 51st International Symposium last November in Anaheim, CA.
