Chou cited for nanotechnology research

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers has selected Stephen Chou to receive its 2004 Cledo Brunetti Award for his invention of groundbreaking techniques in nanotechnology.

The institute will present the award Dec. 14 at its International Electron Devices meeting in San Francisco. Chou was cited in particular for his invention and development of nanoimprint lithography, a high-speed, low-cost technique for creating structures measured in the billionths of meters. The approach could be used in a wide range of applications involving computer chips, memory and telecommunications devices.

Chou, the Joseph Elgin Professor of Engineering and professor of electrical engineering, came to Princeton in 1997 from the University of Minnesota. His NanoStructure Lab includes more than 15 researchers focused on new fabrication techniques for nanotechnology and new devices that make use of the techniques.
