Christian Enz, director of the Integrated Circuits Laboratory at the School of Engineering, and Arnout Beckers, a PhD student, were awarded a prize for their research entitled Theoretical Limit of Low-Temperature Subthreshold Swing in Field-Effect Transistors

The George E. Smith Award was established in 2002 to recognize the best paper appearing in a fast turn around archival publication of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, targeted to the IEEE Electron Device Letters. It is presented annually and the recipient(s) is awarded a certificate and a check for $2,500, presented at the IEEE EDS International Electron Devices Meeting.

In 2017 Ali Saeidi, a former PhD student of Adrian Ionescu, has received the same award.
