Scope and Contents
Series 1 includes course materials from Stanford and MIT coursework taught by Professor Hoyt. This series spans from 1982-2014, and the bulk of the series is dedicated to Hoyt’s teaching career at MIT. Materials include course handouts, lecture notes, and reading materials. Student records were removed from this series. The series is arranged by course number, then chronologically. 6.772 (2005) folder documents a guest lecture conducted by Hoyt for that class. MIT courses taught by Hoyt within this series include 6.012, 6.774, and 6.152J.
Series 2 documents Hoyt’s activities with Microsystems Technology Lab (MTL) at MIT. MTL conducts research on Semiconductor Industry Process and Device Technology as well as Integrated Circuits and Systems Design. Furthermore, MTL serves as a resource for MIT micro- and nanofabrication. Hoyt’s work within MTL has primarily focused on working with SiGe (Silicon-Germanium) Integrated Circuit Design, as well as general duties as an Associate Director of the Lab from 2005-2018. Materials within the series are placed into two groups: MTL activities and MTL partnerships with outside organizations, respectively. Records include documentation of MTL/Hoyt’s involvement with MIT Building 39 Facilities, Nippon Electric Company (NEC), and Veeco.
Series 3 documents Hoyt’s other various professional activities from 2001-2007 that are relevant to her work at MIT and the time span of the collection. The series is divided into two sections: the first half of this series is a repository for personal notes regarding research, various conferences, and other collaborations; the latter section of this series is dedicated to invention documentation and patent information. conference attendances, and other collaborations.

Conditions Governing Use
Within MTL, Hoyt has led studies on the device physics of futuristic transistors based upon quantum mechanical tunneling, among others. Within the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE), Dr. Hoyt has worked within the Integrated Systems group, a multidisciplinary silicon photonics team led by Professor Vladimir Stojanovic, making many breakthroughs in the field and fabricating first-of-their-kind devices. Additionally, Hoyt has worked within the Technology and Development Program (TDP) in Abu Dhabi as a part of the Masdar Initiative, a multifaceted response to the need for a global focus on resource conservation and the alternative energy sector. Within her teaching role at MIT, Hoyt has released her 6.774 course (“Physics of Microfabrication: Front End Processing” as taught in Fall 2004) on MIT’s OpenCourseWare (OCW) platform.
