Bongtae Han elected Fellow of ASMECongratulations to Professor of Mechanical Engineering Bongtae Han, who has been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
The citation reads:
"Dr. Han serves critical industrial needs through measurement and interpretation of thermo-mechanical deformations of microelectronic and photonic devices. His contributions center around experimental analyses by optical techniques. He developed, extended and utilized special measurement means, including Moiré Interferometry, Micro-Moiré Interferometry, Far Infrared Fizeau Interferometry and Shadow Moiré, thereby providing insturmentation for, and analyses of, electronic package behavior; insturmentation that he developed is widely used in industry today. These experimental analyses provide critical guidance and verification for extensive computational analyses. Dr. Han disseminated his research and development accomplishments through extensive publications, presentations, patents and importantly through training of his students. His work has been a seminal contribution to the industry."
Han has received other prestigious honors in his accomplished career. He was awarded the ASME Associate Editor of the Year Award in 2005. He is also a Fellow in the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM) and an Associate Editor for ASME Transactions, Journal of Electronic Packaging. Dr. Han was approved for a patent in 2007 for his invention “Shadow Moiré Using Non-Zero Talbot Distance,” by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office.
