Lin Innovation Award Goes to Baras, Yu

Prof. John Baras

Prof. John Baras

Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) and his former student, Paul Yu, have received the Jimmy Lin Award for Innovation and Invention. They are the first recipients of the award. The two researchers were awarded the prize for their invention, "Wireless Communication Method and System for Transmission Authentication at the Physical Layer."

The award will be presented during ECE Research Review Day at the Faculty Venture Fair to be held at 2 p.m. on October 9, 2009, in the lecture hall of the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building.

In 2008, Professor Emeritus Hung C. "Jimmy" Lin made a generous gift to create the Lin Fund in order to promote innovation among ECE faculty, staff, and students by stimulating, encouraging and rewarding the invention and patenting process. Professor Lin was an accomplished inventor and teacher who passed away earlier this year. His most well-known contribution was the invention of the lateral transistor, which is used in most linear integrated circuits and digital integrated circuits. The Lin award represents a lasting reminder of Lin's energy, spirit and creativity, and commitment to innovation.

"As engineers it is our duty to make sure that our inventions result in better lives for people," said ECE Chair Pat O'Shea. "Professor Lin's gift will continue to reward the process of launching our inventions beyond the walls of the University, so that they can do good things for society."

Prof. Baras will also be a presenter at the Faculty Venture Fair. More information is available at the ECE Research Review Day website.
