Dr. Shu-Jen Han brings more than a decade of experience in the nanotechnology and semiconductor industry to SEEQC, as well as world-class expertise in logic and memory chip-making — a critical component of scaling the company’s system-on-a-chip quantum design.
Han started his career at IBM working in the semiconductor sector after receiving his Ph.D. from Stanford University, later he managed the nanoscale device and technology group at IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center working on world-leading post-silicon transistor research. His works at IBM have been widely reported in CNET, BBC, MIT Technology Review, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal etc.
Han has valuable experience in advancing complex semiconductor chip technology from basic research to product qualification both as a director and later as senior director and associate VP at HFC Semiconductor’s Advanced Memory Technology Division. He led and drove 256Mb and 1Gb MRAM product development with over 80 R/D engineers directly involved. He has authored over 90 technical publications including multiple publications in Science and Nature series, two book chapters, and over 150 issued US patents.
Han will help build a scalable research and development organization, lead SEEQC’s multi-disciplinary engineering groups and establish a clear roadmap for its commercialization. He also oversees the day-to-day operations of the company’s newly renovated chip foundry, a fully operational chip manufacturing facility focusing on superconducting quantum and classic electronics.
