Associate Professor Mona Jarrahi has been selected to receive the 2014 Early Career Award in Nanotechnology from IEEE Nanotechnology Council. The citation reads, “for her contributions to the development of nano-plasmonic and nano-photonic devices and quantum well structures for advancement of terahertz technology.”
The award recognizes young scientists and engineers who have attained tremendous achievement in the study of nanotechnology. The award will be presented during the 14th International Conference in Nanotechnology on August 18-21, 2014 in Toronto, Canada.
Professor Jarrahi’s Terahertz Electronics Laboratory delves in the analytical and experimental studies of terahertz device technologies for applications in material characterization, stand-off chemical detection, atmospheric studies, biological analysis and medical imaging. Her research has gained attention and commendation from peers in the global arena, the most prominent of which is the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2013.
