It’s our pleasure to share that Mahbub Satter has successfully defended his phd dissertation. Congratulations Dr. Satter.

At Georgia Tech, Dr. Satter has been working with Computational Electronics & Photonics Group on lasers and LEDs, and presented his thesis on “Design and Theoretical Study of Wurtzite III-N Deep Ultraviolet Edge Emitting Laser Diodes”. His researches have been published in numerous prestigious journals and conferences, and been awarded patent by USPTO.

Dr. Satter will soon join Intel’s Silicon Photonics group as a research scientist in Santa Clara, CA. Earlier, he was a faculty member at BUET from which he received both his BSc and MSc in EEE in 2005 and 2008 respectively.

BSA@GT extends its warm regards and best wishes for Dr. Satter and his wife Munmun Islam towards their future endeavors and continued success.

Congratulations to Dr. Hossain!

It’s a great pleasure to announce that Mohammad Zahid Hossain has successfully completed his PhD dissertation defense! His PhD dissertation is titled “A New Lattice Fluid Equation of State for Associated CO2 + Polymer and CO2 + Ionic Liquid Systems”. Congratulations, Dr. Zahid Hossain!

Dr. Hossain will shortly join as a Research Scientist in REC Silicon (a division of Norway based company REC) in Moses Lake, WA. REC silicon produces poly silicon and silane gas for solar and electronics industry. Dr. Hossain has been an enthusiastic and active member and also served as the President of BSA@GT community. BSA community extends its heartiest congratulations and warm wishes for Dr. Zahid Hossain, his wife Ms. Zerin and their son Naqueeb, for their continued success and future endeavor.

Zakir Wins a Best Paper Award!

Congratulations to Khondker Zakir Ahmed, on winning the Best Paper Award at the IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design, which was held August 11-13, 2014 in La Jolla, California. The title of the award-winning paper is “An On-Chip Autonomous Thermoelectric Energy Management System for Energy-Efficient Active Cooling.”

Thermal management is a key challenge for today’s integrated circuits (IC) operation. Zakir and his team have developed an on-chip thermoelectric energy management system for energy-efficient, on-demand active cooling of integrated circuits. The design is implemented in a CMOS test-chip and tested with a thermoelectric device. The successful demonstration of this control system will fuel innovations in thermoelectric devices, as well as in the architectural techniques to address the thermal challenges of future processors.

Congratulations to Spring 2014 Graduates!
