FACULTY AWARD: Chou receives IEEE 2014 Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology
Stephen Chou, Princeton University's Joseph C. Elgin Professor of Engineering, has received the 2014 Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology from the IEEE, the top professional society in electrical engineering. Chou has made wide-ranging contributions to the field of nanotechnology, which is the study, manipulation and use of structures that are billionths of a meter (nanometers) in size. The IEEE cited Chou "for seminal inventions, developments and academic-industrial-impacts of new nanopatterning methods, especially nanoimprint; and paradigm-shifting electronic, optical, magnetic, biological nanodevices." Chou will receive the award in August at the IEEE NANO 2014 conference in Toronto.
