Deep Jariwala, Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, has been awarded the 2022 Young Scientist Prize in Semiconductors from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP).

The scholarly society, which celebrated its centennial anniversary this year, at its conference, recognizes the work of rising stars in a variety of subfields. Candidates for Young Scientist prizes must be nominated and endorsed by senior researchers in their field and be within eight years of receiving their doctorate.

The Young Scientist Prize in Semiconductors is awarded every two years and comes with a 1,000-euro honorarium and a IUPAP medal.

Jariwala’s award was given in recognition of his “pioneering studies on exciton-polaritons and electronic heterostructures of two-dimensional semiconductors.” It was presented at the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors, which was held in Sydney, Australia, at the end of June.

Jariwala also received the IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award earlier this year.
