Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 7:00pm

Jong Yeon Park, ECE Doctoral Student, received a 2009 Coventor & The Micro and Nanotechnology Commercialization Education Foundation (MANCEF) Scholarship Awards. He is one of only three international recipients.

Jong Yeon supervised by Professor Dean P. Neikirk. His award winning proposal: “MEMS Actuator Stacked Microbolometer Array for Multispectral Infrared Detection” focuses on design of novel micro-actuators that would allow dynamic tuning of a stacked multispectral infrared focal plane array. This is highly desirable in advanced IR imaging systems and especially beneficial for defense and commercial applications such as, vehicle night vision, medical thermal imaging and diagnostics, missile guidance and defense, surveillance, nondestructive detection and remote sensing.

Coventor, Inc. headquartered in Cary, North Carolina, provides software tools for developing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), microfluidics and semiconductor process applications. MANCEF is an organization promoting the commercialization of emerging technologies.
