AWARDS

There are three prizes awarded this year nominated by the Awards Committee.

  1. The Welker Award.
  2. The Quantum Device Award
  3. The Young Scientist Award.

Qualification of Nominees

The Welker Award

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.

The Quantum Device Award

The Quantum Device 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.

The Young Scientist Award

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.
