サリー大学副学長が研究者・実務家としてのキャリアを表彰されました

2012年11月21日

サリー大学副学長、Professor Sir Christopher Snowdenがその功績を認められ、European Microwave Association (EuMA)からthe Outstanding Career Awardを贈られました。彼の国際的な経歴は、学術界、産業界双方にまたがります。同賞はマイクロ波技術の分野で卓越したキャリアを実現した個人を表彰する目的で設立されました。

He said: “It is a very great honour for me to receive this award from the European Microwave Association recognising my international contributions to microwave engineering research and technology. It is also poignant that it was 31 years ago that I presented my first conference paper as a PhD student at the RAI conference centre in Amsterdam where I received this award”.

As a researcher, Sir Christopher made fundamental contributions to microwave semiconductor device and circuit technology which led to breakthroughs in the performance of power amplifiers and other circuits for mobile telecommunications, radar and satellite applications, which work at frequencies between 500 MHz and 100 GHz (mobile telephones operate between 900 MHz and 2.1 GHz).

His theoretical work led to a new type of simulator for transistor design that was over one thousand times faster than its predecessors and he also developed new designs of transistor capable of much higher performance and more readily manufactured than any previous designs.

He went on to become a Senior Staff Scientist, Technical Director and subsequently Chief Executive for international technology companies but still maintained a strong research activity and engagement with the profession, more recently as Vice—President of the Royal Academy of Engineering and President of the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

As President and Vice-Chancellor at the University of Surrey, Sir Christopher is still actively engaged with the engineering and microwave profession and his most recent technical paper has just been accepted for publication.

The award consists of a bronze medal carrying the name of the award and the name of the recipient. It award was given at the 2012 European Microwave Week Plenary Session held in Amsterdam in October.

The EuMA Outstanding Career Award has previously been conferred to Professor Hans Hartnagel in 2008, to Professor Tatsuo Itoh in 2009, to Professor David Rhodes in 2010, and to Dr. Kaneyuki Kurokawa in 2011.

All EuMA members are welcome to nominate exceptional individuals within the microwave field for the Distinguished Service Award and the Outstanding Career Award
