The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) has  awarded the 2016 Microwave Application Award to Dr. Ulrich L. Rohde,  for his significant contributions to the development of low-noise oscillator performance.

The Microwave Application Award recognizes an individual, or a team, for an outstanding application of microwave theory and techniques, which has been reduced to practice nominally 10 years before the award.

Dr. Rohde is a regular contributor to Microwave Journal. His recent three-part series on Möbius Strips, in collaboration with Ajay Poddar of Synergy Microwave Corp., has been well received by our readers.

Dr. Rohde will be presented his award at the annual IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium Awards banquet held in San Francisco, Calif., May 22-27, 2016.
