To recognize the important contributions of young scientists/engineers in reference to their contributions to fundamental research, integration, application, or education.
$2,000 and a Plaque
Funded by the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society.
Award will be presented at International Symposium on the Applications of Ferroelectrics
Established in 2006
The award recipient will be chosen according to the following criteria: (i) contribution of the publication record (including patents) to the ferroelectrics community, (ii) impact of industrial research and development of ferroelectric applications, and (iii) educational contributions to the ferroelectrics community, and (iv) participation in UFFC-S activities. Votes will be solicited by the Ferroelectrics Committee by email balloting.
Must be an IEEE UFFC member upon conferring of the award, and must be 40 years or younger, at the time of nomination.
For the development of scanning probe techniques and seminal contributions in understanding and controlling polarization switching in ferroeletric materials by piezoresponse force microscopy/spectroscopy on the nm scale, and deciphering switching mechanisms on a single defect level.
