Home > Press > Case School of Engineering Graduate Student Named 2012 Keithley Graduate Fellow for Advancing Research in Nanoscale Devices and Electronic Measurements

Abstract:
Keithley Instruments, Inc., a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, has named Tina He as the recipient of the first annual Keithley Graduate Fellowship Award. Ms. He, a Case Western Reserve University (Case) Ph.D. student, was chosen for this award for her graduate research work with Professor Philip Feng in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Case, on developing novel nanoscale devices and circuits with potential applications to advanced test and measurement.

Case School of Engineering Graduate Student Named 2012 Keithley Graduate Fellow for Advancing Research in Nanoscale Devices and Electronic Measurements

Cleveland, OH | Posted on March 20th, 2012

The research and experiments Ms. He and Dr. Feng are pursuing involve developing very high speed nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) devices and arrays, NEMS logic building blocks, and circuits. Their experimental research includes nanodevice fabrication and low-noise electronic measurement, and will be reinforced by novel designs and modeling.

"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to award the first Keithley Graduate Fellowship to Tina," remarked Linda Rae, president of Keithley. "Her strong motivation and solid background coupled with her research group's leading expertise in NEMS are well-matched with Keithley's R&D efforts and commitment to emerging nanotechnology applications."

"We are very grateful to Keithley for this wonderful support and for their visionary initiative. Congratulations to Tina," commented Professor Philip Feng. "This is a great privilege for both Tina and my research group here at Case. Keithley's generous support will allow our outstanding Ph.D. students to explore cutting-edge experimental research at the boundaries between nanotechnology and electronics metrology. This award gives great freedom to Tina, who has demonstrated excellent efforts and commitment to electronic experiments, to explore new devices and to make a solid contribution to advancing measurement science and instruments."

The Keithley Graduate Fellowship Award was established to foster a stronger, more visible presence in support of Ph.D. students at Cleveland-area universities who are working on cutting-edge electrical measurements technology.
