Deep Jariwala, Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, is the 2023 recipient of the IEEE Nano Early Career Award.

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is a multidisciplinary group whose purpose is to advance and coordinate work in the field of Nanotechnology carried out throughout the IEEE in scientific, literary and educational areas.

Jariwala, whose research interests lie at the intersection of new materials, surface science and solid-state devices for computing, sensing, opto-electronics and energy harvesting applications, is being honored “for breakthrough contributions in logic, memory and photonic devices from low-dimensional semiconductors.” Jariwala’s previous commendations include the IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award, the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship and the Bell Labs Prize (shared with Troy Olsson and Eric Stach) for his work on ferroelectric diode memory.

The award was established to recognize individuals who have made contributions with major impact on the field of nanotechnology.
