Awards

CSW has a long tradition of honoring some of the top researchers in the field of compound semiconductors.

Please e-mail a single PDF file which includes both the nomination form and endorsement letters by March 18th, 2022 to the chair of the Award Committee, Prof. Yasuhiro Arakawa (arakawa@iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp). Any endorsement letters separately sent to the chair will not be accepted.

Welker Award

The 2022 award is sponsored by ams OSRAM.

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.

IPRM Award

The 2022 IPRM Award is sponsored by II-VI Incorporated.

The IPRM Award was initiated by the Indium Phosphide and Related Materials (IPRM) Conference in 1993, as The Michael Lunn Award. During the first three years following its introduction (1993-1995), the award was given for the best paper presented at IPRM. The award criteria were 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 to recognize individuals or organizations who have made an outstanding contribution to the InP and related materials community, especially in the areas of materials growth, integrated photonic components, and high frequency electronics.

CSW Best Student Paper Award

The CSW Best Student Paper Award was established for students who present their work as speakers or poster presenters. The award is are open only to students who are officially registered at a university by the abstract submission deadline. Awardees will be selected by members of the program committee based on abstract content and presentation quality. All papers with registered students as first-authors will enter the competition. Student award applicants are strongly encouraged to attend the award ceremony in the closing session.
