Leonard Frank Register
Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Leonard Franklin Register is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, a member of the Microelectronics Research Center, recipient of the Temple Foundation Endowed Faculty Fellowship #4, and Chief Operation Officer of the Southwest Academy of Nanotechnology. Prof. Register has B. S. degrees both in Electrical Engineering and in Physics, and a Ph. D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, each from North Carolina State University. He served as a postdoctoral student and research scientist in the Computational Electronics group within the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before joining the faculty of The University of Texas at Austin in 2000. Prof. Register is a device theorist whose research is focused on understanding and modeling the essential physics underlying the operation of nanoelectronic and optoelectronic devices. His current research interests included alternative materials and device geometries for CMOS (non-classical CMOS), alternative switching methods and/or state variables (beyond CMOS), quantum transport with scattering, and quantum-corrected semiclassical transport. He has also published in areas including CMOS reliability, compact modeling, lasers, scattering theory and single electron devices.
Co-chairing the symposium on Nano Electronics & Photonics.
