Texas ECE PhD student Jack Kramer has received the Best Student Paper Award from the IEEE International Conference on Microwave Acoustics & Mechanics (IC-MAM) 2022 for his work on "Acoustic Wave Focusing Lens at Radio Frequencies in Thin-Film Lithium Niobate." Kramer is supervised by Prof. Ruochen Lu in the UT RF Acoustic Microsystems Group. The other authors on the paper are Daehun Lee, Shahin Jahanbani, and Keji Lai fromTexas Physics, and Sinwoo Cho also from Texas ECE.
IC-MAM brings together researchers "to share the most recent advances in new materials and manufacturing processes as well as components and devices, which represent the key for the development of future RF, microwave, mm-wave and THz devices, circuits and systems based on RF-MEMS and Acoustics." The 2022 IC-MAM was held in Munich, Germany from July 18-20, 2022.
Kramer received his BS in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from The University of New Mexico in 2021 and joined Texas ECE in August 2021.
