Dr. Vijay K. Arora
Professor Vijay K. Arora, Division of Engineering and Physics, was an invited speaker and distinguished lecturer at a number of conferences and instiutions in the Asia Pacific region. His voyage started with arrival in Yogyakarta in Indonesia where he addressed the audience at Gadjah Mada University with an IEEE-EDS distinguished lecturer (DL) on "Science and Engineering: Bridging the Gap through Nano-Engineering " on May 22, 2009. This was followed by a trip to the Instiute of Technology Bandung, a premium educational institution of Indonesia, where he mentored graduate students on Breakdown of Ohm's Law and its implication on electronics through another DL entitled "Design of Nanoelectronic Circuits in Beyond Ohm's Law" on May 25, 2009. On May 26, 2009, he addressed the members of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) with a half-day short course on Quantum Nano-Engineering. This was followed by a trip to New Delhi, India, where he had another DL at The 18th WIMNACT(Workshop and IEEE EDS Mini-colloquium on NAnometer CMOS Technology)-MQ3-New Delhi, India - Mini-Colloquia on "Compact Modeling and Fabrication techniques of advance MOSFET/ HEMT structures" held during June 04-05, 2009 organized by IEEE EDS Delhi Chapter, Department of Electronic Science, University of Delhi South Campus. The title of his DL was "The Role of Scattering-Limited and Ballistic Transport in Performance Evaluation of Nano-CMOS Circuits"
In conjunction with the above DLs, Professor Arora was an invited speaker at the Asian Modelling Symposium (AMS2009) held in Bandung and Bali, May 25-29, 2009. The title of his invited talk was " Physics-based Modelling of Ballistic Transport in Nanoscale Transistor " and "Modeling of Nanoscale MOSFET Using MATLAB." He was also asked to chair a session on track entitled Transport, Logistics, Harbour, Shipping and Marine Simulation. Immediately following the Bandung and Bali Symposium, Professor Arora arrived in Mumbai where he addressed the audience with his invited paper at the International Workshop on Electron Devices and Semiconductor Technology (IEDST), a biennial event held in conjunction with the IEEE Electron Devices Society Adcom (Administrative Committee) meeting, June 1-2, 2009. The title of his paper was “Scattering-Limited and Ballistic Transport in Nanoelectronic Devices.” In addition, he was asked to chair an invited session in which papers on “Micromachined Piezoelectric Acoustic Devices” and “Integrated CMOS Gas Sensors” were presented.
As Partner of the Delhi chapter of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, Professor Arora advised the local committee members on how to activate the chapter for annual activities.
