A new $75,000 fellowship to support a graduate engineering student doing research aimed at improving the performance and reliability of integrated circuits has been established at Stanford by the Semiconductor Research Corp. (SRC) and the Semiconductor Electronics Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
It is the 36th such fellowship that has been set up nationwide by SRC, a research consortium of nearly 50 semiconductor companies and government agencies, but the first with a government agency as co-sponsor.
The first recipient of the new fellowship is Charles Perkins, a doctoral student of electrical engineering Professor C. Robert Helms. Perkins will conduct key research related to the measurement of ultra-thin dielectric films used in making integrated circuits.
