Compound Semiconductor Week 2021
ISCS/IPRM 2020/2021 Award Announcement
The International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors
The Welker Award was initiated in 1976; the recipients will be selected by the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors Award Committee for outstanding research in the area of III-V compound semiconductors. The Award is established by Siemens AG, Munich, in honor of the foremost pioneer, Heinrich Welker, in III-V compound semiconductor development. This award is currently sponsored by OSRAM GmbH.
The Quantum Devices Award was established in 2000 by Fujitsu Quantum Devices, Ltd; the recipients will be selected by the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors Award Committee for pioneering contributions to the fields of compound semiconductor devices and quantum nanostructure devices, which have made a major scientific or technological impact in the past 20 years. The fields of the Award covers: invention of new device concepts and structures, device physics and modeling, device realization and characterization. This award is currently sponsored by the ISCS Japanese Committee.
The Young Scientist Award was initiated in 1986; the recipients will be selected by the International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors Award Committee for technical achievements in the field of compound semiconductors by a scientist under the age of forty. Nominees should be younger than 40 years of age on the first day of the symposium.
The International Conference on Indium Phosphide and Related Materials
The Michael Lunn Award was established in 1993 to commemorate a young research scientist at Wafer Technology Ltd. who became a victim of a car accident. Awardees were chosen by the organizing committee of IPRM on behalf of the III-Vs Review magazine. The award was given for the best paper presented at IPRM in the first three years following its introduction (1993-1995). The criteria were subsequently revised in 1996 to recognize individuals who have made “outstanding contributions to the InP community”. In 2007, the award was renamed the IPRM Award and has since been sponsored by the IPRM international steering committee.
