We are proud to annouce the winners of the Arthur H. Guenther Pulsed Power Student Awards for 2016:
Dimitry Mikitchuk and Shelby Lacouture
Dimitry Mikitchuk was awarded the 2016 Arthur H. Guenther Pulsed Power Student Award "for developing novel in-situ diagnostics for the measurements of magnetic field and current density on pulsed-power driven systems. Shelby Lacouture was awarded the 2016 Arthur H. Guenther Pulsed Power Student Award "for contributions in developing a coupled hardware and software short pulse test bed for analysis of semiconductor devices."
The winner of the 2017 Arthur H Guenther Student Award is David Yanuka.
David Yanuka has won the 2017 Arthur H. Guenther Pulsed Power Student Award "for research on the implosion of shock waves generated by underwater electrical explosion of wire arrays."
One of the greatest honors you can bestow on the distinguished members of our community is to nominate them for an award. The Pulsed Power Science and Technology Technical Committee (PPS&T/TC) honors contributions and achievements in the field of Pulsed Power through three distinguished awards:
The Erwin Marx Award recognizes outstanding contributions to pulsed power technology by an individual over an extended period of time.
The Peter Haas Award recognizes outstanding contributions to pulsed power technology resulting from an individual’s continued effort to develop programs of research, education, and information exchange that are the basis for progress in pulsed power.
The Arthur H. Guenther award recognizes outstanding students in the field of pulsed power by identifying their unique achievements in the field of pulsed power science, engineering and technology development.
The recipients of the awards will receive their honor at the 2017 Pulsed Power Conference.
The deadline for nomination was December 1st, 2016. Information about the Erwin Marx, Peter Haas and the Arthur H. Gunther (student) awards can be found at the website http://ieee-npss.org/awards/technical- committee-awards/.
