The Twenty-Seventh Annual Connecticut Symposium on Microelectronics and Optoelectronics (CMOC) took place on April 4that the University of New Haven. The event included oral and poster presentations on Materials, Devices, Applications, Bio-sensing/Nano-Biosystems, and Emerging Technologies.
MSE graduate student Tulsi Patel won best oral paper prize for her talk co-authored by Professor Alpay and Professor Hebert, entitled, “A Path to Hybrid Additive Manufacturing of Ferroelectric Oxides and Aerospace Alloys” presented in the Materials & Characterization Session.
The event gave attendees the chance to network with renowned experts and discover research and development activities in micro- and nano-technologies applied to electronics, photonics, biosensors, and energy applications. In addition, attendees learned about research and development resources in Connecticut and neighboring states.
The sponsors of the symposium included The Connecticut Microelectronics & Optoelectronics Consortium, SPIE-UConn Chapter, The University of Connecticut’s Center for Continuing Studies, and the Yale Center for Microelectronics Materials and Structures.
The overall goal of CMOC is to enhance the collaboration and sharing of resources between Connecticut industries and universities in microelectronics and optoelectronics. It aims to bring recognition to new technologies, trends, and current issues through presentations by nationally and internationally recognized experts.
