Undergraduates Win IEEE Senior Design Award

Two Students Operating Laser

ECE seniors Abbie Tippie and Christopher Kautz recently won the IEEE P.K. Sen Senior Design Award for their project entitled, "High resolution microscope of the future: Using an ultrashort wavelength laser to image integrated circuits."

Tippie and Kautz competed with students from eight other regional universities and were judged on a project proposal presentation at a meeting of the IEEE Denver Section. The students will use the cash award to help fund expenses associated with their project.

Working under the direction of Drs. Carmen Menoni and Jorge Rocca in the NSF Engineering Research Center for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Science and Technology Tippie and Kautz both rank among the top ten students in the ECE senior class.
