Congratulations to Dr. Mohammad Mahdavi who will be joining Panasonic-North America next week. We wish him success in his new position.
Reza Moheimani has been selected as the recipient of this year’s ASME DSCD Charles Stark Draper Innovative Practice Award. He will be presented with the award during the ASME Conference on Dynamic Systems and Control, Oct 5-7,2020.
The Center for Atomically Precise Fabrication of Solid-State Quantum Devices seminar series starts on Aug. 10, 2020. Visit the Center webpage for more information: https://centers.utdallas.edu/qdc/
We are hosting the Workshop on Atomically Precise Fabrication of Solid-State Quantum Devices on March 20-21, 2020. This workshop brings together some of the pioneers in the field to discuss new results and emerging trends in solid-state quantum devices for which fabrication with atomic precision is a necessity.

Congratulations to Dr. Bulut Coskun for commencing his career with the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA.
Congratulations to Dr. Mohammad Maroufi who will be joining Apple Inc., Cupertino, CA in August. We wish Mohammad best of luck in his new career.
The proposal for the “Center for Atomically Precise Fabrication of Solid-State Quantum Devices” has been selected by UT Dallas to receive an award. The center will advance the technology of Hydrogen Depassivation Lithography with particular attention to the atomically precise positioning of dopant atoms in a single atomic Si(100) plane. This is a new and exciting path to realizing analog quantum simulation devices, designer quantum metamaterials and even quantum computing devices and systems.
The interview is published in June 2019 issue of IEEE Control Systems Magazine. You can read the interview here.
Reza Moheimani and James Owen (Zyvex Labs) have won a Department of Energy (DOE) Phase-II Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) award. The project “High Speed Platform for Highly Parallel STM lithography and Hierarchical Assembly.” This project builds on the team’s work in Phase-I to develop and commercialize Microelectromechanical System (MEMS)-based Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) scanners for atomically precise manufacturing.
Reza Moheimani is a Partner Investigator on the ARC Discovery Grant: “Robust Control of Highly Resonant Flexible and Nanoscale Systems” that was recently selected for funding by Australian Research Council. The project is led by Professor Ian Petersen at Australian National University. Professor Alex Lanzon at University of Manchester is another PI. The project’s aim is to develop systematic control synthesis tools for highly resonant systems, and to investigate their applications, particularly in micro and nano-electromechanical sensors.
