Missouri S&T researcher wins Google Faculty Research Award

Posted by on April 28, 2020

As electronic devices become more complex, the printed circuit boards (PCBs) they use need more components, including capacitors that prevent voltage fluctuations. Researchers say there is a gap between the theoretical understanding of the physics of designing and placing the capacitors and how to leverage that understanding to create the real product. That gap is the focus of research by Dr. Chulsoon Hwang of Missouri University of Science and Technology, and Google has recognized his work with a highly competitive Faculty Research Award.
