Dr. Hwang is a forward thinker, an international businesswoman, inter- national speaker, and a business and technology advisor. She is a pioneer of and long-standing contributor to SMT manufacturing since its incep- tion, as well as to the lead-free elec- tronics implementation. Among her many awards and honors are induction into the International Hall of Fame—Women in Technology, election to the National Academy of Engineering, YWCA Women Achievement Award, and being named an R&D-Stars-to-Watch (Industry Week). Having held senior executive positions with Lockheed Martin Corp., Sherwin Williams Co., Hanson, plc, IEM Corp., she is currently CEO of H-Technolo- gies Group, providing business, technology and manufacturing solutions. She serves as Chair- man of Assessment Board of DoD Army Research Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), National Materials and Manu- facturing Board, Board of Army Science and Tech- nology, Commerce Department's Export Council, various national panels/committees, international leadership positions, and the board of Fortune 500 NYSE companies and civic and university boards. She is the author of 450+ publications and several textbooks, and a speaker and author on trade, business, education, and social issues. Her formal education includes four academic de- grees (Ph.D., M.A., M.S., B.S.) as well as Harvard Business School Executive Program and Columbia University Corporate Governance Programs.

THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION (INDUSTRY 4.0): INTELLIGENT MANUFACTURING Researchers from the Univer- sities of Bristol and Exeter are one step closer to developing a new generation of low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells. The structure is one of the world's first examples of a tri-layer metasurface absorber using a carbon interlayer. The system, developed by Chenglong Wang, a PhD student in Professor Mar- tin Cryan's research group, uses amorphous car- bon as an inter-layer between thin gold films with the upper film patterned with a 2D periodic array using focused ion beam etching. Professor Cryan is the professor of Applied Electromagnetics and Photonics in the Department of Electrical and Elec- tronic Engineering. The trilayer gold-carbon-gold metasurface strongly absorbs light across the solar spectrum but minimizes emission of ther- mal radiation from the struc- ture. The use of gold in the re- search is a first step towards a high temperature metasurface where gold can be replaced by other refractory metals such as tungsten or chrome. The cell will be used for so- lar thermal energy applications and has the potential to reach much higher tem- peratures than simple black surfaces because it can minimise the emission of thermal radiation. The metasurface has been developed as part of a joint project, led by Dr. Neil Fox, between Bris- tol's Department of Electrical and Electronic Engi- neering and Schools of Physics and Chemistry. The Bristol team have been working with Pro- fessor Tapas Mallick from the University of Exeter to develop the low-cost solar concentrator systems.
