Tony Acosta
Microelectronics Research Engineer

Tony Acosta graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in May 2005. His work at Belford Research involves developing new fabrication processes for the microelectronics industry. While at Georgia Tech he worked as an undergraduate research assistant for 2 years in Dr. Bernard Kippelen’s Research Group as part of the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics. His main responsibilities were to conduct research involving the design, fabrication, and testing of organic light emitting diodes. Tony was given the President’s Undergraduate Research Award for his work in Dr. Kippelen’s group. He took courses in IC and Substrate Fabrication that in addition to his research experience have provided him with plenty of exposure to and experience in the device fabrication process.

Tony has also taken courses in microelectronic circuits, semiconductor devices, analog electronics, digital IC design, lasers, optical engineering, quantum physics, materials science and engineering, and thermodynamics, among others. His main career interest is in the design, fabrication, and development of next-generation microelectronic devices in which he hopes to later obtain a doctoral degree in.
