Bruno Azeredo gave an oral presenation on November 20th, 2014 at the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition. His presentation was titled “Semiconductor Photonic Devices Metal-assisted Electrochemical Stamping for Semiconductor Photonic Devices” and highlighted the work on the development of a direct imprint technique for patterning 2.5D nanostructures onto semiconductors with Metal-Assisted Chemical Etching. Dr. Ferreira’s group collaborated with Dr. Keng Hsu at Arizona State University in this initiative.
