Yue Kuo Awarded Gordon E. Moore Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Solid State Science and Technology

The Electrochemical Society will present the award at its spring meeting in Chicago

Pennington, NJ – (February 9, 2015) – Yue Kuo will be awarded the 2015 Gordon E. Moore Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Solid State Science and Technology at the 227th Electrochemical Society Meeting in Chicago, Illinois May 2015.

Texas A&M Professor Yue Kuo currently holds the university’s Dow Professorship at the school of Chemical Engineering. Due to his extensive experience and research in solid state science, Dr. Kuo has established the Thin Film Nano & Microelectronics Research Laboratory, which is dedicated to solid state research and education.

Among his many honors, Dr. Kuo has been awarded ECS’s Electronics & Photonics Division Award (2007) and the prestigious ECS Fellowship Award (1999). He has authored many papers and edited many journals, including the Journal of The Electrochemical Society from 2003 to 2012.

Dr. Kuo’s research is focused on the interdisciplinary nano and microelectronics area, especially the understanding of the complicated relationship among device performance, material properties, and fabrication processes of TFTs, ICs, and novel applications.

Dr. Kuo’s work in solid state science has yielded many innovations and has made great impact in the scientific community. In his award address, Dr. Kuo will talk about breakthroughs in research on nano and giga electronics.
