Prof. Edward Yu Elevated to IEEE Fellow
UT ECE professor Edward Yu has been elevated to IEEE Fellow. Prof. Yu was elected to Fellow for his contributions “to characterization and device applications of semiconductor nanostructures.” IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation.
Professor Yu directs a research laboratory concerned generally with the characterization, understanding, and application of physical phenomena and of solid-state material and device properties at nanometer to atomic length scales. Current research interests in his group include photovoltaics and other technologies for energy generation; scanning probe characterization of advanced electronic materials and devices; III-V nitride heterostructure materials and device physics; and solid-state nanoscience and nanotechnology generally. The results of his research have been reported in over 130 archival journal publications and over 200 conference and seminar presentations.
