Welcome to the Electron Devices Society

We will be hosting a special summer EDS talk on Friday, June 18th.  Please join us at 12 pm to hear Professor Paul Simmonds' talk entitled "Tensile-strained self-assembly: Nanoscale stretching creates novel quantum materials".  Paul Simmonds is an associate professor in both Physics and Materials Science at Boise State University. During his postdoctoral studies at Yale, Simmonds discovered that by using tensile strain it is possible to create III-V quantum dots on (110) and (111) surfaces, with implications for the fields of quantum information science and spintronics. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, winner of the2018 North American Molecular Beam Epitaxy Young Investigator award, and a National Science Foundation CAREER awardee.

DATE: June 18, 2021

TIME: 12:00PM

LOCATION: Zoom (see COVID info below)


In order to provide a safe environment for speakers and audience members, we will be conducting all EDS talks over Zoom for the forseeable future. In order to provide additional security for these online meetings, we will be primarily sharing the meeting ID and password through our listserv. PLEASE, PLEASE subscribe to the listserv (see Join Us below or the separate Join EDS tab) for information on how to subscribe. We will not be posting the meeting information on the website or on Facebook at this time.

About Us

The primary purpose of the society is to meet every week to listen to a colleague explain his or her research. This creates valuable opportunities for researchers to practice giving technical presentations and to generate new research collaborations. Additional guest speakers from inside or outside Cornell may be invited to speak on technical or non-technical topics of interest to the EDS community. Occasional social events may be organized through EDS but the primary purpose is to generate scholarly discussion of science and engineering.
