Shang Hua Yang has been selected to receive a Doctoral Research Award from the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society for his research project, Three-Dimensional Plasmonic Photoconductive Antennas for High-Power Terahertz Generation.
Shang Hua is an electrical engineering Ph.D. student working with Prof. Mona Jarrahi at Terahertz Electronics Laboratory. His research is focused on designing plasmonic nanostructures to enhance efficiency of conventional photoconductive terahertz emitters. For his doctoral research, he has demonstrated the most efficient laser-driven terahertz radiation source.
About the Award: The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society grants up to ten Ph.D Research Awards each year. The selection committee evaluates each applicant based on his or her research project, academic record, and potential to contribute to the electromagnetics profession in the future. The award consists of a $2500 fellowship.
