The Center for E3S proudly congratulates Professor Sayeef Salahuddin for being among the 105 researchers named to receive the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).
Recipients of the PECASE award — the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers — were announced by President Obama on February 18, who noted: “These early career scientists are leading the way in our efforts to confront and understand challenges from climate change to our health and wellness. We congratulate these accomplished individuals and encourage them to continue to serve as an example of the incredible promise and ingenuity of the American people.”
As part of the E3S Nanomagnetics Theme, Professor Salahuddin has been focusing on developing next-generation low-energy switches based on current-driven magnetic elements and spintronic phenomena. Professor Eli Yablonovitch, Center Director and Principle Investigator, pointed out: “The Center is also proud to have funded his early research on negative capacitance in ferroelectric materials for low-power logic applications. We are truly delighted for Professor Salahuddin that his nanoelectronics and nanomagnetics research are being recognized by this prestigious award.” – Learn more: Read the official White House announcement.
