US-based Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), has presented its 2013 University Researcher Award to University of Florida professor Mark Law in recognition of his work in advancing research in integrated circuit devices and reliability.
Mark Law's research group at Florida has developed FLOOPS and FLOODS, the Florida Object Oriented Process and Device Simulators, which previously won the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) Technical Excellence Award.
“It is a pleasure to recognize Dr. Law for his outstanding achievements in the field of semiconductor research,” said Dr. John E. Kelly III, IBM senior vice president, director of IBM Research, and 2014 SIA chairman. “Trailblazing researchers like Dr. Law are building the foundation for the next generation of technologies that will drive growth in the U.S. semiconductor industry and the overall economy. We commend Dr. Law for his tremendous accomplishments.”
“Dr. Law exemplifies today’s highly valued researcher that is relied upon to not only deliver basic research, but also help cultivate world-class talent that will continue to propel the future of the semiconductor industry,” said SRC President Larry Sumney.
Dr. Law was editor-in-chief of the IEEE Journal on Technology Computer Aided Design from 1997-2002 and has served as an editor of IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing. He has written over 200 papers in the area of process and device modeling.
