The ISCS 2016 Awards
Nomination for the ISCS awards has been closed.
The award winners will be announced at the award ceremony on June 27th.
The International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors is the venue for presentation of three prestigious prizes. The awards to be made are:
- The Welker Award
- The Quantum Devices Award
- The Young Scientist Award
The recipients of all three Awards will be selected by the ISCS Award Committee.
The Welker Award was established in 1976 by Siemens AG in honor of Heinrich Welker, the pioneer in the field of III-V compound semiconductors. The award is now supported by Osram GmbH and given away for outstanding research in the area of III-V compound semiconductors. The list of the recipients includes three Nobel Laureates.
The Quantum Devices Award was initiated by Fujitsu Quantum Devices Ltd. in 2000, and is now sponsored by the Japanese section of the ISCS steering committee. The Award honors pioneering contributions to the field of compound semiconductor devices and quantum nanostructure devices including physics and epitaxial growth.
The Young Scientist Award is supported by the Symposium. Established in 1986, the Award acknowledges technical achievements in the field of compound semiconductors by a scientist younger than 40 years on the first day of the Symposium.
