Xiuling Li Awarded 2022 IEEE Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology

Xiuling Li

Xiuling Li of Texas ECE has been named the recipient of the 2022 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology. Li is being recognized “for innovative contributions to nanoscale device growth, fabrication, and demonstration especially nanowire epitaxy, metal-assisted chemical etching, and self-rolled-up nanomembrane technology."

The Pioneer Award recognizes individuals who have had a significant impact on the field of nanotechnology by virtue of initiating new areas of research, development or engineering. The award will be presented at IEEE-NANO, the flagship conference of IEEE Nanotechnology Council,  to be held in Palma de Mallorca, Spain from July 4-8, 2022.

Xiuling Li is a professor and holds the Temple Foundation Endowed Professorship No. 3 and the Fellow of the Dow Professorship in Chemistry in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.

Her research focuses on nanostructured semiconductor materials and devices. She has published >160 journal papers and holds >20+ patents, delivered > 140 invited lectures worldwide. Her research opens new avenues by using innovative epitaxial growth and nanofabrication approaches including metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) of III-N and Ga2O3, metal-assisted chemical vapor deposition (MacEtch), and strain-induced self-rolled-up membranes (S-RuM), to address the ever-present needs to reduce the size, weight, power, and cost (SWAP-C) of microelectronic devices, among other applications. She has been honored with the NSF CAREER award, DARPA Young Faculty Award, and ONR Young Investigator Award. She is a Fellow of the IEEE, the American Physics Society (APS), the Optical Society (OSA), and the National Academy of Inventors (NAI), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
