Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Zhenqiang “Jack” Ma, Ph.D. is a professor in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received his B.S. degree in applied physics and the B.E. degree in electrical engineering from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1991, and the M.S. degree in nuclear science and the M.S.E. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 1997, and 2001, respectively. His doctoral research focused on the development of SiGe power heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) for high frequency microwave applications.
Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma's energy research focuses on energy conversions with emphases on direct conversions of nuclear energy and solar energy. He is also interested in applying wireless and microwave techniques in next-generation nuclear power plants and power conversion of solar modules. He has specialized in semiconductor devices, materials and circuits for many years. Fast flexible electronics and nanophotonics are also his current intensively focused areas. He currently serves on the Executive Steering Committee for the IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems. He is elected Conference Chair of 2008 IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems to be held in Orlando, FL. His inventions include PIN Diodes for Photodetection and High-Speed, High-Resolution Image Sensing, Method for Double-Sided Processing of Thin Film Transistors, High-Power-Gain, Bipolar Transistor Amplifier, and Solid-State High Frequency High Power Device.
