„The Microwave Prize“ goes to ... Wuppertal

Category: ihct - News

The Microwave Prize is the oldest award granted by the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, dating back to 1955.

June 7th: Prof. Dr. Ullrich Pfeiffer receives the "Microwave Prize 2017" .

June 7th: Prof. Dr. Ullrich Pfeiffer receives the "Microwave Prize 2017" .

The Microwave Prize recognizes the author(s) of the paper, published in any official IEEE publication during the calendar year but historically selected from the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, that is judged to be the most significant contribution in the field of interest of the MTT Society.

The research group headed by Professor Dr. Ullrich Pfeiffer, institute for high frequency & communication technology (ihct) at the University of Wuppertal, Germany, receives the "Microwave Prize" together with her project partner, the Leibniz Institute for Innovative Microelectronics (Frankfurt / Oder).

The publication "160-GHz to 1-THz Multi-Color Active Imaging With a Lens-Coupled SiGe HBT Chip Set" is awarded to Dr.-Ing. Konstatin Statnikov, former research fellow of Prof. Pfeiffer, together with other authors. He presents a broad spectrum spectroscopy approach in the terahertz area developed by a team headed by Prof. Ullrich Pfeiffer.

Terahertz radiation lies in the electromagnetic spectrum between radar and infrared radiation. It is medically harmless, but it has hitherto been difficult to produce and detect using less expensive semiconductor technology. However, this is necessary if you want to get a lightweight, universal and portable system. The innovation lies in the multi-color concept. In analogy to visible light, a broad frequency band (0.15 to 1.5 THz) can be utilized by targeted evaluation of so-called harmonic waves to characterize substances spectroscopically. This possibility should also help in the detection of hazardous substances in a rapid test.

The award is associated with a prize money of 3,000 US dollars. The ceremony takes place on 7 June in Hawaii.
