The IEEE Microwave Theory and Technology Society (MTT-S), a transnational society with over 11,000 members and 190 chapters worldwide, has announced it’s awards for 2023. These awards were given to the following recipients:
IEEE Electromagnetics Award which is a prestigious IEEE Technical Field Award for outstanding contributions to the theory and/or application of electromagnetics.
- John W. Bandler for contributions to electromagnetic optimization and the modeling of high-frequency structures, circuits and devices.
IEEE Transportation Technologies Award which is a prestigious IEEE Technical Field Award for advances in technologies within the fields of interest to the IEEE as applied in transportation systems.
- Holger Meinel for the development and promoting the application of mWave technology in transportation systems.
Microwave Career Award recognizes a career of meritorious achievement and outstanding technical contribution by an individual in the field of microwave theory and techniques.
- Peter Russer for a career of leadership, meritorious achievement, creativity and outstanding contributions in the field of microwave theory and technology.
Microwave Pioneer Award recognizes an individual or a team not exceeding three persons having made outstanding pioneering technical contributions that advance microwave theory and techniques, which are described in an archival paper published at least 20 years prior to the year of the award.
- Richard J. Cameron for seminal and impactful contributions to the theories for direct synthesis of high-performance microwave filters.
Distinguished Service Award recognizes an individual who has given outstanding service for the benefit and advancement of the MTT Society.
- George E. Ponchak in recognition of a distinguished record of service to the MTT Society and the microwave profession over a sustained period of time.
Distinguished Educator Award recognizes a distinguished educator in the field of microwave engineering and science who best exemplifies the special human qualities of Fred Rosenbaum, who considered teaching a high calling and demonstrated his dedication to the Society through tireless service.
- Payam Heydari and Michal Mrozowski for outstanding achievements as an educator, mentor and role model of microwave engineers and engineering students.
Microwave Application Award recognizes an individual or team of no more than five individuals for an outstanding application of microwave theory and techniques, which has been reduced to practice nominally 10 years before the award.
