Yulong Li Wins Prestigious Interdisciplinary Doctoral Fellowship for 2015-2016

Yulong has been awarded the highly competitive interdisciplinary fellowship by the University of Minnesota for his work on the creation of an ultra-small radiation dosimeter for cancer therapy using fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FDSOI) technology. Because of its structure, conventional dosimeter uses the same element for radiation sensing (write) and data extraction (read), which makes it difficult […]
