CareerEdit

Banerjee has supervised over 60 Ph.D students and 70 M.S. students at the University of Texas, where he is the Cockrell Family Regents Chair Professor.

ResearchEdit

In 1986, he was awarded Best Paper at the IEEE International Solid State Circuits Conference for work on polysilicon transistors and dynamic random access trench memory cells used by Texas Instruments in the world's first 4 Megabit DRAM. He demonstrated the first three-terminal MOS tunnel FET as well as the first high-k dielectric/silicon-germanium quantum dot gates for flash memory.[4] He is active in the areas of beyond CMOS nanoelectronic transistors based on 2D materials and spintronics, fabrication and modeling of advanced MOSFETs, and solar cells.[5][6][7]

PublicationsEdit

He has over 650 archival refereed journal publications and conference talks[8], and he holds 30 U.S. patents. He is co-author with former Dean of the Cockrell School of Engineering Ben G. Streetman of the textbook Solid State Electronic Devices, currently in its 7th edition.

Honors and awardsEdit

Banerjee was elected Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in 1996, Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2006, and Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2007. His awards include the 2014 IEEE Andrew S. Grove Award[4], the 2008 Cockrell School of Engineering Billy and Claude R. Hocott Distinguished Centennial Engineering Research Award[9], the 2005 Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur Distinguished Alumnus Award, the 2003 Electrochemical Society Thomas D. Callinan Award, the 2000 IEEE Millennium Medal, and the 1988 National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award for high speed optoelectronic devices and VLSI structures by laser enhanced molecular beam epitaxy[10].
