University of Arizona Professor Farhang Shadman has won the Semiconductor Research Corporation's (SRC) Landmark Innovation Award for his research in semiconductor technology, especially in the area of environmentally benign manufacturing.

Shadman, of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, is director of the NSF/SRC Engineering Research Center for Environmentally Benign Semiconductor Manufacturing.

He won the award for his research on water purification and reduction of water and energy consumption in semiconductor manufacturing. His research has led to improvements in environmental safety of semiconductor manufacturing processes and has saved the industry millions of dollars.

Shadman received the award and a $10,000 check at the Techncon 2000 conference in Phoenix. Jack Kilby, developer of the integrated circuit, presented the award.

The award recognizes patented inventions that have resulted from SRC-funded research that have made long-term contributions to the semiconductor industry.

SRC plans and manages a program of basic and applied research carried out principally in North American universities on behalf of SRC companies.
