Mr. Wei-Mong Tsang, an EE alumnus and a former MPhil student of Prof. S.P. Wong, now studying for his PhD degree in University of Surrey, U.K., has been awarded the E.W. Müller "Outstanding Young Scientist" Award of the International Field Emission Society. This is the highest award given to a student working on field emission by the community. The award was made following his presentation at the joint 19th International Vacuum Nanoelectronics Conference and 50th International Field Emission Symposium, held this July in Guilin, China. This work is a collaboration between the Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey and the Department of Electronic Engineering, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Prof. S.P. Wong is one of the co-authors of the award winning paper entitled "Electron field emission properties of Co quantum dots in SiO2 matrix synthesised by ion implantation".
